All Amber

I have 8 amber Dimm lights. So far I have tried using only 2 dimms then reseating dimms but the 8 light stay on. No posting, no bios, nada nothing! I am fearful mother board shot. Server was worked rather hard.

Re: All Amber

What happens when you try it with only 2 dimms? Does the server start up?
Any chance you can try the dimms 2 by 2 to see if there is an issue with just one dimm pair?

Make sure you set the 2 in bank A and not just in slot one and two

Re: All Amber

Thank you for the quick reply. When the server died I switched to our spare. I also removed the dimms from the failed server 4x2gb and installed them in the spare; it is runnning just fine. I tried using the dimms from the spare 4x1bg and they where working before I switched to the spare. I have now tried various combinations of the 4x1gb and all the amber light keep coming on. Needless to say we are puchasing another spare. This is so nerve racking!

Sounds like the sys brd needs to be replaced then. Sorry to bring you the bad news.
