POST failure?

Hi

What is the meaning of a POST failure ?
What is the reason of a POST failure on a memory board?

Re: POST failure?

Anis,
POST - Power On Self Test.
before the operating system is bein loaded, the server is running a few Hardware tests that are called POST.

If the POST failed because of memory, you might have a bad memory board.

what type of system are you refering to ?
If you can be more specific we can isolate the problem.

Anis,
does the system reach the BCH ?
If so can you see all your memory ?

you can use the following to check your memory configuration:

MA>in me

to check for any warning:

MA>in wa

let me know

Seems as if you are haveing memory issues and need to contact your hardware support provider.
