Apple xserve g4 dual 1ghz won't power on

I just got a xserve g4 dual 1ghz. It would not power on in any way (no leds on the motherboard, back panel, etc) and no fans powering on. Nothing, just dead.

I replaced the power supply and now can hear it clicking when powering on or off, but still no power elsewhere.

Is there a power reset method or something i've missed?

Sorry man, I went through this with my Dual 2GHz G5...your logic board is dead, computer wont work till you replace it, and even that is no garantee your RAM/CPU's are in working condition, logic board failure tends to eat components like that.

ML350 G4 will not boot. System was running but became unresponsive. Powered down using power button. Now no response to pushing power button. No Leds lit anywhere. Fans running on power supplies.

Try pulling the hot swap Power supplies, push the power button hole the supplies are out to discharge power, then put them back in again and try the power button again.

Hp Proliant ML350 g4 will not power on. System was on but not responding so used power button to shut down. Now no response to pressing power button. No LEDs lit anywhere. Fans running on power supplies.

sounds like the motherboard has gone.... you could try changing the PSU and popping out some of the ram boards to see if that helps. but with the symptoms you've said, i'd say its the motherboard.

Apple xserve g5 power supply got porblem. may need to replacement

this is the link to get a service manual in English.
It includes detailed instructions, like use static electricity wrist bands.
1. Shut down the computer. Remove the power cable. 2. Unscrew the two finger screws on the front panel, remove the computer from it's case by pulling forward, and place it on a solid surface. Be careful. It's heavy and hard to handle. DON'T DROP IT. 3. Unscrew the one finger screw holding the Power Supply in place. Lift the power supply out by the metal support near the 14 pin connector to the motherboard. There is a pin in the back panel of the computer, so the back end of the power supply rotates when the end closest to the front lifts. 4. The 14 pin connector is has a lot of friction. I have never gotten it to come up easily, as it is supposed to. I usually use something to GENTLY lift up the metal cover/bracket over the 14 pin connector on the front end. 5. If you are taking this out because you are replacing it, you should read what the manual says about checking the battery, resetting the PMU [AKA "zapping the PRAM"?], and checking for 12 volts of power from pin 1 to pin 8 on the 14 pin connector. 6. This isn't in the manual: To get at the 1 and 8 pins on the 14 pin connector, A. Removed the power supply, as described above. B. Removed the three screws that hold the metal cover/bracket over the 14 pin connector on the front end. C. Removed the cover/bracket to expose the tops of the 14 pins.

HP DL380 G4 could not boot up. Nothing display as well. What's wrong with that?

make sure there is no disk in cd rom drive if there remove it and also check the amber led in front panel which is indicating the problem still if you are not able then open it and check the ram. And the power connector in motherboard and also the cmos battery or reset the bios.
