Yes, you'll get that error message if SATA Operation (SATA Mode) is set incorrectly in BIOS setup.
And make sure that motherboard battery is good too. emotion-5.gif

"A possible VRM 0 has occurred"

VRM = Voltage Regulator Module

Here is what the motherboard looks like,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/DELL-PRECISION-Workstation-470-XC838-Motherboard-with-2GB-/140795014004?pt=Motherboards&hash=item20c8096b74

[Note* Posted for photo reference only. Not for advertising.
Besides, I do not see any VRM's plugged in. Means you get the motherboard only, and no VRM's. You need a VRM ]

What the Voltage Regulator Module looks like,

http://www.thebestpartinc.com/kg229.html

(Again, not for advertising. Click on the photo of the VRM to enlarge)

Notice that your motherboard has two VRM's. This is because there are two Processors.
Apparently the VRM for one of your Xeon processors is bad. (Z-on)

Since it states VRM -> 0, it is for the Processor 0, or in the number 1 processor socket.

What does a Voltage Regulator Module do for a Processor?
Regulates voltage.

A Processor MUST have a steady, 'clean' supply of voltage, AND it must be within the voltage range for the processor.

Since the motherboard uses an Intel E7525 motherboard chipset, it can support Intel Xeon processors, with up to an 800MegaHertz Front Side Bus. (800MHz FSB)

Looking at a typical Intel Xeon single-core processor, with an 800MHz FSB, let me show you it's voltage requirements,

1.287 to 1.400 (DC)

May be just a bad VRM.

However, I would also like you to look at the Electrolytic Capacitors on the motherboard. From what I have seen, those motherboards are notorious about having capacitors go bad.

I have a broken Dell Precision 470 Workstation. The symptoms are as follows: Won't power up; Flashing yellow power LED on front panel; Blank STR_LED on motherboard; Yellow AUX_PWR LED on motherboa


Flashing front powerlight is often a result of a faulty powersupply, try another powersully on the pc and see if the problem gets solved. I've seen a few of these cases personally.

Hello, When i start the computer its starts a


Oh geez, you have some work ahead of you.

I would somehow acquire another video card (ask a friend :)). Put that in and see if your computer boots up. If that still doesn't work its either the CPU, or the Motherboard.

I would take apart the heatsink, remove the CPU, reseat it and see if it works.

Let me know! ill help

I installed a e5430 xeon processor into an xw8400 workstation and now it does not want to boot up.


maybe your system needs a bios upgrade before it runs with the cpu... happened to me once too, although with a different system. Give it a shot.

Have you tried a differnt video card?  Also disconnect everything including the hard drive to see if the system will POST.  If it does, them start connecting 1 item at a time.
