Question about Dell PowerEdge 1600SC Server
Onboard SCSI controller went out - I ordered a replacement motherboard - swapped into the original - same CPUs, Drives as before. Three tiny green LEDs come on when I add power, fans come on at power up, nothing else - No POST, no monitor signal. Just sits there. Swapped everything back to the old motherboard, it all still works (except the bad SCSI). What am I doing wrong?
Are you sure the new motherboard was of the same revision as the old one? Dell shipped 400FSB boards during the beginning of the 1600SC line and shipped 533Mhz boards during the end of the run. I would check the revision level of the motherboard to make sure it is compatible. If it's the same revision, I would start small and connect just one CPU and put the system at 512mb ram and see if that works. If this works, you can begin to add additional components as needed.
