V250 crashing

Would anyone know what this error message may be related to below. I have no support for this box. It is semi retired.

Re: V250 crashing

You had a High Priority Machine Check - most likely cause is a hardware problem. Without support on the box, I'm not sure how you would go about diagnosis.

Jerry --

HP does provide a per repair hardware service for a fee. That would probably be your only approach in this case.

Re: V250 crashing

It's so long ago!

If you have good luck, the system comes up again with a disabled memory quad or CPU.

This indicates a bad component.
Watch out for the disabled/missed items.

If not, open a call at HP!

Hope this helps!

Re: V250 crashing

It's definitely a hardware problem. I haven't touched a V box in years and they were not very common even back when they were in vogue. The standard technique for this is to strip the box down to bare essentials (minimum memory, minimum processors; minimum i/o boards); hopefully it will pass diagnostics; if not swap out components and try again. You need the lowest processor, the lowest memory, etc. If you are now able to get the box to pass diagnostics, you then add components until you see a failure to identify the failing component.
If it ain't broke, I can fix that.
