    I was trying to perform a password recovery on a 2621xm, I had booted
    to the Rommon, set the confreg and typed reset. Now it just hangs.
    No text, no response in Hyperterminal nothing. I opened the router to
    reseat the memory and found two loose pieces. They are small, approx
    1cm wide pieces of copper. They appear to be a bridge for some
    jumpers on the front of the motherboard (in front of the SIMM for
    RAM...) However, I am afraid to bridge some jumpers without knowing
    for sure.

    Here is what I need: Either a picture of the inside of a working
    2621xm, or help with the hung reboot.

    could be some EMI shielding broken loose. Can not remember until I open one
    up again but some devices use small copper fins, or fingers as sometimes
    called, to make a good case ground between chassis parts to meet FCC EMI

  3. The small copper pieces are probably from the edge
    of the blanking plate in slot 1 (on the left hand side
    looking from the rear), not from the main board.

    But they may have shorted the main board somewhere.
