ML110 G2 won't boot - LEDs OK

System is new install (SATA 80 drives). Booted normally for first 12 hours, loaded Netware 6.5, booted normally. Then hung during a NOS load, began intermittent boot hangs (no logo screen, no keyboard lights) and now no boot for many tries. MB and front LEDS green. SW1 all in off position.
Checked all connections, reseated RAM, SW1 #4 to reset BIOS. No change.
Any suggestions? Can't get to any device to load diagnostics.
Thanks, John

Have you tried to re-seat the processor? Sounds like it's loose. Do you get video flicker at all when you power on the system?

POST beeps or none?
Enjoy!

Sounds like a dodgy RAM module, is it HP or third party?

Had to replace the mainboard to solve the problem. System unstable though -- periodic system lockup.
John Ruffo - thanks for the re-seat processor suggestion -- I had tried it. And just fyi there was no video or POST beeps.
Andy McCreath - thanks - although the mainboard solved the boot problem, your comment on the dodgy memory may still be valid. It's HP and I think that it may be the ongoing instability cause.
