Question about HP PC Desktops
The HP Integrity systems don't use BIOS, they use EFI (Extensible Firmware Interface). I have an rx2600, which is practically identical to the zx6000, apart from having faster blowing fans, being pre-configured with an AGP/PCI riser board and so on.
Best is to hook up a serial console (i.e. RS-232 null-modem) cable and see what happens, if there's no graphical output to the monitor. As the system comes up, the EFI Boot Manager should give you the following built-in options:
• EFI Shell
• Boot Option Maintenance Menu
• System Configuration Menu

You can get the manuals for this product online at HP's site. I am looking at the Operation And Maintenance Guide for HP Workstation zx6000 HP Server rx2600 right now. in .pdf format. but there is nothing in there about this problem. I would suggest downloading it though, 27MB manual with a wealth of information on it! There is also a startup guide. and other manuals.
What OS are you running on this machine? Is it windows or linux?
If you can get to a command line > sudo /sbin/hwclock --set --date "08/04/2000 08:33:25"
replace the date and time with todays date and time of coarse but I found that little gem of info on the web. I hope it helps.
