Hi Gerald,

- Regarding the Memory Module you have, The Server would work only with Hp Compatible Modules, The Details

256-MB 100-MHz Registered ECC SDRAM
Part No:- 313616-B21


-Try Reseating the HDD , As the Server has Integrated Controller, You can try Clearing Nv-ram from Bios . Incase the Issue Persist Verify Whether its Compatible with the Server from the Quick Specs Below
