    We have a Cisco 1005 router that is not booting up properly and we'd like to
    troubleshoot it before declaring it defective.

    During boot, the console connection simply keeps repeating the same two line
    message over and over again. (It isn't connected and I don't have the
    message handy). I will be connecting up to it this evening and add more
    details regarding the issue. IOS is v10.3 and is supposedly good.

    Is there a way to reset this unit to factory defaults?

    The message that keeps repeating is:

    System Bootstrap, Version 5.3.2(9) [vatran 9], RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1)

    ....and it doesn't matter if the flash memory card is installed or not.

    I do have a laptop with PCMCIA slots (as well as a 2600 series router with
    empty PCMCIA slot), so I should be able to verify and/or update the flash
    card. I'm not familiar with doing this though, so I haven't tried it in the

    Any suggestions folks? (PLEASE? It's for the wife!)
