Question about IBM eServer xSeries 346
I got this 2nd hand server and booted it up into win 2003 server then i entered an incorrect password a couple of times then the machine made noise and the error light on the front panel went on. then i reset the machine and it wont boot further than the initial screen that says ibm eserver. the POST code on the motherboard LED display is stuck at "Ad"
Try resetting the system BIOS.
There are three ways to do this, depending on the mainboard style.
Check for a jumper near the mainboard battery.
If there is one, and it is a three pin style, move the jumper from the side it is on to the other side, then turn the power on (generally it will spin up, but nothing will happen), and then back off. Replace the jumper as it was originally and boot the system.
If there is a two pin jumper, remove the jumper, turn the computer on (again, it will probably not do anything), then turn the computer off and replace the jumper and reboot.
If there is no jumper, remove the battery, turn the system on, then off, then replace the battery and reboot.
