Question about IBM xSeries 346 Server
The power supply is your likely culprit. You probably have a bad diode in the power supply. Even if you check the voltages and everything checks out, it still could be bad because voltage checks are done with no load on the power supply. When a diode is bad, a load on the power supply can cause shut down (had the same thing happen to my pc 2 mos ago.) Try a different supply of at least the same wattage rating. If you are still having the same problem, you could be looking at a bad system board. Hope this helps. Good luck.
