I have an out of warranty Precision 650 showing "previous attempts at booting this system have failed at checkpoint [cab1]" on POST. Any ideas how to get this thing to boot up?

Then try this:
That may clear the error message.
*If battery is more than ~2-3 years old, this might be a good time to install a fresh one.
