2500 Static Timer Error Message

I have a proliant 2500 that seemed to work fine with 1 processor. I added a second processor, ran the diagnostics (most recent version), and kept receiving a static timer error when I did the CPU diags. I went ahead and procured a good working mobo, another proc, and different ram. I then proceeded to switch out all of those parts, but to no avail. I have been on the phone with compaq support a bunch of times, but no one can tell me exactly what the static timer error message means, or what I should try to swap out next. This server is not great, but with dual procs, it would be fine to run SUS on, since I only have 125 clients hitting it. Well, please let me know if you know what generates the static timer error message.

Re: 2500 Static Timer Error Message

Are both processors the same stepping level?

You may have to physically look at the processors to get the stepping number off of them.

Re: 2500 Static Timer Error Message

I receive this error whether or not I have one processor in or both matching processors in.
