If the processor runs, problem is with RAM. If the system is totally dead, the problem is with ATX power supply.

System doesn't get on after shut down

Check the system BIOS. I know that in certain HP systems you can disable the power button so that it doesnt do anything. It's to stop the system being accidently shut down

Unexpected shutdowns

G3 is very very old server, most are retired now. 99%\
12 years old servers...
it is so old it has floppy drive ! yes that old. and PCI slots no express slots old. (relic it is)
Does it have the 2 CPU option:?
did you read the server logs? it has logs!
it records all shut down causes on my bigger/newer G7

It will shut down by self for a 3 reasons.
it overheats, or the PSU is bad. or the PSU was overloaded.
mine even has power log, that proves that and 2 PSU's that auto backup power, if one is bad. of the 2. (you have only 1 PSU on this old server ,unlike my G7)
is this your only 330? no spares ? as most servers installations have (all do really for clustering)
clean out the dust in the CPU heat sinks and make sure all fans work first? that be first. so it cant overheat
did you first change out the COIN cell on the MOBO,
bottom of motherboard see that Cell it be NO GOOD at 12years
old ever. and makes the BIOS go Nuts and RTC clock same.

no logs, ever heard of iLo (lights out)
its built in micro web page. and its own IP address
you connect to it and read the shut down logs.
data sheet it is at HP, as is full help at HP real. HPE its called

on mine I can see 6 fan speeds
and 21 temperature readings at any time.
under system information page in iL0
and then the iLo event log. mine says admin turned it off last night.(a video server it is , here)
but read the logs first.

this be the first place to look on any HP Prolaint ever made.

My Hp proliant Ml110 g5 server powers on, but shuts itself down while the OS is booting - win 2003 server

Perform a RAM test to check every section of the memory. It might be hitting a bad sector when it loads the OS.

Check your events log to eliminate software issues. From a hardware point of view the unit could be overheating causing ASR to kick in

BL 48Oc server not starting after shutting down

Browse to the server in question using the Insight display on the front of the blade enclosure. It will likely be red and flashing. See if this has any relevant information. It will usually tell you why a server is not booting.

If this doesn't help then try going into the Onboard Administrator for the enclosure and seeing if the diagnostics there help. This communicates with an independent processor on each server using a separate internal management network so you can generally get some good info even if the server is having issues.

Have you added servers or changed your power redundancy settings recently? Either of these could cause you to need additional power supplies if you aren't already full.

Another possibility if your enclosure is not completely full of fans or has one or more fans that are failed is that you are trying to put the server in a pair of slots that won't provide adequate cooling. The Insight Display should help you with this. If you have physically moved the server from one location to another then this is a very strong possiblity/

One last thing, if you are running on 110-120V power with a C7000 enclosure then you need to change to hi-line voltage as 110/120 is not supported and has limitations/issues. If it's a C3000 then you are OK with 110/120.
