Hi I'm Franck and I have some issue with my Compaq Proliant Dl320. when I start it, no information on my screen, led Power is green, electricity led is green. then after 3 or 4 minutes, led Power...

Bad Power Supply Franck.

Power Supply has a weak voltage power rail.
(Or more than one.
There are three main voltage power rails.
1) The 3.3 Volt power rail
2) The 5 Volt power rail
3) The 12 Volt power rail)

The Power Supply has enough power to light the Power On LED, and 'electricity' LED, but Not enough power to turn the Processor on.

A) If ALL of the LED lights were on at once they would use less than 1 Watt of power.
B) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts.
C) A typical Processor can use 51 to 125 Watts of power.
(Less for older processors such as an Intel Pentium III)

An Intel Pentium III model 1266S processor, (Tualatin Core) can use up to 30.4 Watts.

Why is the Power Supply bad?

Two main causes of computer failure;
1) The computer is dirty inside to include the Power Supply.

Power unplugged from computer, Anti-Static Precautions observed, a can of compressed air for computers is used to clean the inside of the computer, and the Power Supply. (The best you can through the Power Supply's case ventilation holes)

2) Bad Power Supply.

Some of the components inside a computer power supply are Electrolytic Capacitors.
(Radial Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors to be specific)

Electrolytic Capacitors break down after time.

The Power Supply used in a personal computer is an SMPS.
Switched-Mode Power Supply,

Electrolytic Capacitors are used in the Input Stage, and Output Stage.
They Filter the incoming AC electricity, and the outgoing DC electricity.
(Rectified AC)

In the above link click on the photo of an exposed SMPS to the upper right of the page.

The letter B is on top of one of the two large Electrolytic Capacitors used in the Input Stage.
The letter E is in the middle of surrounding smaller Electrolytic Capacitors used in the Output Stage.

Basic construction of a Radial Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitor, is a small aluminum can with two strips of aluminum foil, and a strip of paper soaked with Electrolytic Paste, installed inside.

There are three strips.
A) One strip is the Conducting strip.
A strip of aluminum foil.

B) One strip is a Non-Conducting strip. A strip of aluminum foil with a non-conducting medium applied to it.

C) A paper strip which is soaked with Electrolytic Paste.

The paper strip is laid in-between the two metal strips, and all three are rolled up tightly, then installed in the aluminum can case.

The Conducting strip has a lead (Think wire) attached to it, and it is the Positive connection.
The Non-Conducting strip has a lead to it also, and it is the Negative connection.

These two leads come out of the bottom of the capacitor through a Bung.
(Flat synthetic rubber disk)

The top of the 'can' has a flat metal aluminum disk. This disk is etched with a pattern part way into the disk's surface.
The pattern is usually a K or X.

When the Electrolytic Paste breaks down it forms a gas. Hydrogen Gas.
The gas expands, and pushes the paste out of the capacitor.
(Though the cracked open K or X on top, and/or pushes one side of the Bung out of the bottom)

So much paste loss, and the capacitor operates in a weakened state.
Too much paste loss, and the capacitor fails.

Electrolytic Capacitors are the weakest link in an SMPS.

This is Not an invite to try to repair the SMPS in your computer.
The best solution is to replace it.

This is from a quick search,

The power supply used in the Compaq Proliant DL320 server computer, is not an average one you can buy anywhere.
The above however is just from a quick search. You may find a better price. (Just make sure it's a reliable source, IMHO)

HP Support > Compaq Proliant DL320 > Service Manual, (Service Guide is a Service Manual),

Click on the file - HP Proliant DL320s Server Maintenance and Service Guide

Shows you how to open the computer, and change out the power supply.

Computer unplugged from power, observe Anti-Static Precautions.

Anti-Static Precautions:
Your body carries Static electricity.
Static will fry out (Short Circuit) the delicate hardware components inside a computer.
Relieve your body of Static BEFORE working on your computer.

Computer unplugged from power, computer case open, TOUCH the metal frame of the open computer case.
IF you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, be SURE to touch the metal frame again upon your return ]

Hi, how to switch off HP Proliant DL320 G2 server fans? In Normal fans speed and noise

The fans are essential to the cooling of the processors and everything else in there, if they are running fast then usually that means your processor is overworked. I'd go for a fresh operating system if you can.
The fans should come on really fast when its first turned on, then slow down after a few minutes.

G5 keeps powering up for a few mins then switches off?

Thank you for contacting Fixya Support, I am glad to assist.

There are a few steps you can try to troubleshoot this issue:

Try a PMU Reset:
* Turn of your iMac if it is already turned off
* Disconnect all connections to the iMac except the power cord
* Now disconnect the power cord for approximately 20 seconds
* Reconnect just the power cable the keyboard, mouse and power cord, and then power your iMac G5 up.

* Check to see if the iMac boots up normally without power interruption.

* If the iMac G5 shuts off again, try these steps, another recommendation would be to remove all connections including the power cord, and lay the iMac G5 on soft cloth face down and with a philips screwdriver, remove the plate on the bottom of the iMac G5 where your RAM memory is located.
Before removing the RAM however, touch your hand on the metal boot to discharge any static current you carry for approximately 5 seconds.

Now remove each RAM card and then reseat (re-install) each card.

Restore the RAM card cover with your Philips screwdriver, reconnect your power cable, keyboard an
d mouse and turn on your iMac G5.

See if this second procedure helps if the first procedure does not work.

Let me know if this helps.

How to replace the power supply on a powermac G5

I would be very cautious doing this, if you are not an Apple tech. You can damage the connector for the G5 Processors, and render the machine un-usable.

You have to remove the RAM and Processor, then remove the two power connectors that connect from the power supply to the logic board. On the bottom, underside of the chassis, there are four screws. Remove them, then you can tilt the power supply out of the bottom of the unit.

Replacement, is just the reverse.
