HP9000 failing to boot

I have inherited a HP9000 (RP3410), which after being moved to a different rack fails to start up.  


I have connected to it via a serial crossover cable and am in the MP console.  When I go to the console to try and go into the BCH, I get the title 'Live Console' and nothing more.


I have gone into the 'Live log viewer' and can see the following last entry when I power on the server:


SFW 0 0 0x160012CF00E00000 000044007800000E MPS_CPU_WAITING

I'm not sure whether this is an error, but on the basis that nothing is coming up from the console, I would suspect so.

Hi Jhanby,


0x448000A700E02A40 FFFFFFFF000AFF74 MEM_CORR_ERR


I could see 0A DIMM has some issues.
