Question about Dell PowerEdge 2300 Server
I have a Dell Poweredge 2300 and it's been off and unplugged for a while, around a month maybe, can't remember. Anyway, when I turn it on, the monitor acts like nothing happened and no lights come on the keyboard. The server turns off and on just fine, but whenever I turn it on everything just sits there. I've had this happen a couple of times with this server and usually I have to leave it on for a couple of days before it starts to work again, but this time I've had it on for about 4 days now. Is this normal with these servers, or any other server, and is there anything I can do to get it to work? Hello, I have the same issue as the original poster. I have replaced the motherboard to no avail. How do I go about establishing the appropriate replacement part (number) for a new video card/controller? Thanks Owain
It sounds like the power supply is failing.
Failing power supplies will sometimes deliver just enough power to make the fans spin but not enough for the motherboard and drives to start.
I hope this helps.
