Most probably this would be Motherboard issue. Rare cases for processor fault. Easy to find out if server works on dual processor
Trouble shooting: 1: Perform Power Cycle (Turn off server, remove power cord from server and wait 15 min) 2: Try with minimum configuration (1 cpu, 2 ram ) (swap CPU if have dual) 3: Perform IMM update
If issue remains, replace motherboard and see if it solves issue.
Ok, That' s a motherboard issue. You would have to replace motherboard...
1: Set server in minimum configuration(single processor and two RAMs)
2: Remove any PCI cards added in server
3: Turn on server check for issue
If plannar fault appear, you have to replace motherboard..
Hi, Make sure that the fans are working at proper speed (not stuck or slow). Secondly, heat sink could be clogged due to dust or not properly seated. Clean it if required. You may remove it, clean its fins and replace it back (for both processors if required) . Don't forget to apply THERMAL PASTE between the heat sink and the processor (If you remove the heat sink). The Thermal paste conduct the heat from the processor to heat sink which is then dissipated into air by the processor fan. You may also consider adding an additional fan, if required.
Also, place the PC at a well ventilated location so that the cool air enters it from the front and warm air leaves from the back.
Did you disassemble the heat-sink and processor? If you did, did you replace the thermal paste before putting back the heat-sink? did you make sure that the heat-sink touches and locks properly with the processor?
These are the things you need to check if it shuts down within 2 sec without any beep codes. This is a system built-in protection for the processor to avoid being burnt from overheat.
You might also want to check for any non-functioning fans and anything that can relate to "heat problems".
Hope this helps.
It sound like the CPU fan or server case fan/s or power supply fan bearings are worn. To determine which fan/s is faulty open the computer case and stop each fan from spinning, one at a time to determine the noisy fan. Once you have identified the noisy fan then replace that fan.
1) your server is 8 years old (in box). Many things could be wrong. It could be dead on arrival , damaged in transit , etc.,
2) These beep codes are only released to tech crew . Search their web site for the info.
3) The web site may not have the info (they usually show the up-to-date models only).
4) Find a tech crew to service it.
5) Any new server / equipment must be tested on arrival to make sure they work. Else , you would be paying for goods that are faulty (DOA) , in which case you qualify for one to one exchange. Don't let is just sit there. Test them even though they are not needed immediately due to change of project schedules etc., You can always test , UAT , then box it back up. This way , when you need it quickly , it will probably work. I find this the best way to be ready for quick use.
