Section 9? (HP 1000 power supply)

Yep, thats the external battery pack bypass jumper.

Some HP's have an internal power supply option for battery backup using
a 14V Gel Cell battery. If the external
battery pack is disconnected, you need to install this jumper or the
machine will not power up the memory system properly. This can be
mis-diagnosed as a deffective power supply or bad CPU.

If your getting all siz register-select LEDs lit on power-up, that may
well be your problem.

But dusty-old HP1000's often have fussy ribbon cables inside the memory
card cage that can cause some intermitant power-up issues. Also for
some reason its not too uncommon to find misconfigured memory systems.
 I've seen machines come out of the field with improper combinations of
memory arrays and controllers more than once. This will cause you
start-up problems too.
