Automatic shutdown

Check the CPU Fan and make certain it is functional. Some computers do an auto-shutdown when the CPU reaches a certain heat ratio upon starting. Make sure the power conncetion is on firmly.

Shuts down 2 seconds after powering on.

Don't know this exact server. But my guess it is either a heat issue or a power supply issue. Turn it on with the cover off. Check the CPU fan(s). If your CPU is getting too hot the system might be shutting down power to save it. If everything seems cool it might be the power supply I have seen it when the power supply fan goes out on the power supply and the caps inside start to sizzle. Voltage ramps up and fail.
Hope this helps.
Also, Something that has tripped me in the past. Make sure the power button is not stuck. I had a server that the power button stuck down and it would turn itself off. Took me 2 CPU fans and a power supply to figure that out. LOL

Unexpected shutdowns

G3 is very very old server, most are retired now. 99%\
12 years old servers...
it is so old it has floppy drive ! yes that old. and PCI slots no express slots old. (relic it is)
Does it have the 2 CPU option:?
did you read the server logs? it has logs!
it records all shut down causes on my bigger/newer G7

It will shut down by self for a 3 reasons.
it overheats, or the PSU is bad. or the PSU was overloaded.
mine even has power log, that proves that and 2 PSU's that auto backup power, if one is bad. of the 2. (you have only 1 PSU on this old server ,unlike my G7)
is this your only 330? no spares ? as most servers installations have (all do really for clustering)
clean out the dust in the CPU heat sinks and make sure all fans work first? that be first. so it cant overheat
did you first change out the COIN cell on the MOBO,
bottom of motherboard see that Cell it be NO GOOD at 12years
old ever. and makes the BIOS go Nuts and RTC clock same.

no logs, ever heard of iLo (lights out)
its built in micro web page. and its own IP address
you connect to it and read the shut down logs.
data sheet it is at HP, as is full help at HP real. HPE its called

on mine I can see 6 fan speeds
and 21 temperature readings at any time.
under system information page in iL0
and then the iLo event log. mine says admin turned it off last night.(a video server it is , here)
but read the logs first.

this be the first place to look on any HP Prolaint ever made.

I have an IBM x346 eserver that has run well for years. The fans are now very load (whirling noise). I typically only hear this noise when the room temp is high, but this server is in a cool room with no...

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.

Main MB powers on for about 15 sec then shuts down, power supply and front panel control both good, how can i get replacement MB

Check the CPU heat sinks and fans. Replace heat transfer material. If it powers up and doesn't stay on very long, it could possibly be detecting overheat or cpu fan stopped and shutting down.

No display cpu fan are'nt running though there is green and orange light on server

Hello there,

Check your power supply and see if its functioning.

CPU fan that does not run means there is no power getting into the motherboard.

Thank you for using Fixya

Server starts to boot then powers off.

Check your CPU cooler. If it is not properly mounted your CPU/s could be overheating. There is a safety mechanism in Pentium chips that shut down the processor when it reaches a certain temperature. If your heat sinks are mounted correctly, check your Heat sink fans. Ball bearing fans are notorious for making a little noise then quitting.

Constant beeping

I would first check that all the fans are turning when you first power it up. It may have fan speed sensors on them, and one or more fans aren't coming up to speed. I would check the CPU fan(s), as they are usually smaller, and tend to go bad before the other larger ones.
