Amber Light on Motherboard

Hi there,

 

I have recently acquired a Proliant ML350 G6,

I have a flashing amber light on the front panel, and a steady amber light on the motherboard.

 

ive tried to find out what this amber light is, but the manual for the board doesnt seem to show the LED that is lit.

 

the LED is next to the end dimm slot towards the IO panel end of the board.

the system recognises all the ram and seems to run fine (well not quite, but i'll come to that in a minute), ive tried swapping dimms around or removing the offending one but i still get the same amber light. can anyone please tell me what this LED is??

 

the other problem i have is that I occasionally get a BSOD with the error DPC Watchdog Violation. FYI im running  win10 pro.

I had hoped to update the bios. but it seems i cant have the most recent rom as i dont have a support package ot something.

for the record, im just a gamer who's built a system on the cheap. is there now way we can have the roms? obviously i accept full responsibility if the worst happens.

 

thanks in advance to anyone that can help.
