As we all know Cisco has more than 60% market on Router and Switchs.
When power is applied to the 2950, the switch will begin its POST process. POST is used to verify that the different components of the switch are operational. When POST begins, the SYSTEM LED is off. Once POST completes all testing, and all tests have passed, the SYSTEM LED should turn green. If it is amber, then at least one test has failed during POST, which is usually catastrophic for the switch: in other words, the switch won’t boot up
Boot sequence of cisco switch

Turn the switch off and remove the cards out the back, put the cards back in and turn it back on. Sort of like a 'master reset'. I used this the other day when the switch was stuck in a loop during it's startup sequence, worked ever since. Hope this helps, cheerio....
