DL380 G4 won't start and boot


may be somebody has a same problems,
and know how that resolves.

When power cables plugged and power button pressed, all funs starts in
HIspeed mode, SCSI disks are works, no any beeps, no boot, and monitor still in switch off mode. But second led in the front panel is RED. That mean "internal error".
All parts are new.
I had changed memory, cpu, power supply.
There are no results.

my configuration
DL380 G4.
CPU - Xeon 2.8G
Memory - 4x 512 DDR2100
Power supply - 2x 400W
HDD - 6x 72Gb Seagate
CDROM&Floppy - 1x

Hi Stanislav,

There should be a corresponding error LED lit up inside the server somewhere.
This should point you to the component that is faulty.

Try to erase system settings with System Maintenance Switch - SW6. (see Maintenance and Service Guide). If not resolve the issue contact with HP Tech Support to replace mainboard.
