Re: L440Gx server board do not boot
1: Check wether the on/off button on your power supply is turned to on.
2: Check your cables. Try switching with those from other pc's.
3: Check wether all the connections from power supply to the mainboard/ram/video/harddisk are OK.

This could be any number of problems. First start with hardware. Is everything seated and connected correctly? Are the hard drives installed correctly. Are the power on pins on the board set correctly or pinned at all? Is the ram the correct ram?
Check the hard drives, are they functional, do they boot with other computers?
Use a volt meter and check that the power supply is producing the correct voltages on all the connectors and rails.
If that all checks out, it might be a bios error. Check your boot load order and if the motherboard is detecting the hard drives, check that the correct bios settings for OS management are in place as this is a server. Is the RAM power settings (voltage) and speed correctly selected? Will the computer boot from optical drive using a live CD? Will it boot from a USB live OS (like Ubuntu)?
Since it's not booting, you may not have compatible hardware or damaged hardware. The OS that's installed on the hard drives may not be able to load on the new (older model) motherboard due to driver incompatibility.
The "media test failure" message usually occurs when it tries to boot from LAN instead of the hard drive. It most likely says something about an Intel/Marvell PXE Boot Agent. If it does, then you'll have to disable the LAN Boot ROM in the system setup boot configuration.
if it has 2 video cards or had 2 might be disabled in bios. if not and it does not boot at all then it could be CPU Powersupply or RAM, i would start with removing RAM and see if it beeps if it does Power Supply migh be ok, put one stick of RAM back in snd see if it boots swap RAM Slots and stic around to make sure its not a RAM Problem. if still no video and just spinning fans its Trial anf error of the CPU and Power Supply i know it **** but if you have a PoSupply tester that would rule that out. if you are savy enough to remove CPU look for burnning and smell for Burn. Good Luck
CPU temp is OK
Look inside when it is running and make sure all fans are spinning.
If server is connected to a UPS / battery disconnect it and plug it directly in the outlet.
Try another wall outlet.
Disconnect any unecessary internal or external components.
Remove RAM and test with one module at a time.
You could have some burnt capacitors on the motherboard.
Examine them and make sure that their tops aren't cracked or bulging.
You could have 2 bad power supplies or insufficient wattage.
eBay should have parts if you need them.
Sorry if this is obvious but I have to say that that server is very old and this may only be the start of your problems. Make sure your backups are solid and try to replace it soon.
ELECTRIC SHOK OR IMPROPER EARTHING IS DAMAGE POWER SUPPLY,MOTHERBOARD,PROCESSOR,RAM
HOW TO CHECK IT.
(WHEN CHECKING KEEP CAUTION :- REMOVE HARD DISK DRIVE POWER SUPPLY SOCKET)
1. check power supply watt 400/450 and same another power supply install and check it. if power supply change and system is working ok so problem in your power supply.
2. check CMOS cell on motherboard,(3 volt)
3. Bfore power supply changing check on mother board any capasitor is like as damaged or not.
OR check main chipset ic is marked as intel.whenpower on it is very hitting or
normal)if very hitting require to repair your motherboard.(intel chipset ic near cmos cell or pci slot,)
4. checking of ram on other pc (working or not)(one beeps coming or not,if one beep coming ram is working ok)
