DL185 g5 fans problem



I have a DL185 g5 server and the mobo broke, so I bought a refurbished one.

Now when I start the server, it says that don't detect any fan (it says 6 fans but I only have 4). 

I can not eather enter on the boot menu or bios to update firmware.


Someone can help?

At first thought, I would check to make sure you seated all the components correctly (memory, CPU, etc). Then try clearing CMOS

 Clear CMOS Button (SW4)
The system board has a system configuration (CMOS) button (SW4). To clear system configuration, remove AC power and press the CMOS button for seconds.

Thank's for your reply,


I've already reinstalled all components and reset cmos before. Nothing change.
