Question about Dell PowerEdge 1600SC Server
I am trying to add a second identical 3.2 GHz Xeon CPU to my 1600sc server. With both CPUs & fans installed, the server will not pass POST and I get no video, no beeps. Running one CPU works fine and I've swapped the two CPUs into the CPU1 position with no problem. But it won't boot with two CPUs installed. Ideas?
Did you receive a VRM with the the PRC upgrade kit? And have you installed it?
The following items are/should be included in a microprocessor upgrade kit:
• A microprocessor (PRC)
• A heat sink
• Heat-sink retention clip(s)
• A voltage regulator module (VRM),
Your upgrade kit may also include a cooling fan.
If you are adding a secondary microprocessor, examine the VRM to ensure that it is the correct VRM for your system. Install the VRM in the appropriate secondary VRM connector, ensuring that the latches at each end of the connector engage. If you received two VRMs with the upgrade kit, replace the primary VRM already installed in the system with one of the VRMs from the upgrade kit.
Note: The system does not support mismatched VRMs.
