ML 110 G7 Startup issues



I've just received an ML110 G7 that won't boot. The amber light on the front briefly turns green, the fans sound like they are trying to engage, then it goes back to amber.  Like turning a car over, it keeps doing the same thing, spinning the fans when green, then stopping instantly.


Does anyone know what the problem is?

It's light number 7 that keeps going back to Amber after 1 second - Power Status LED.

Possible causes:

  • Improperly seated or faulty power supply.
  • Loose or faulty power cord.
  • Power source problem.
  • Improperly seated component or interlock problem.
  • Faulty internal component.

You can try with minmum configuration :

  • All additional DIMMs
  • Leave only the minimum required to boot the server - either one DIMM or a pair of DIMMs.
  • All additional cooling fans, if applicable
  • All additional power supplies, if applicable (leave one installed)
  • All hard drives
  • All optical drives (DVD-ROM, CD-ROM, and so forth)
  • All optional mezzanine cards
  • All expansion boards
