ML150 G5 Startup Problems

Hi,

The first time we turned on our brand new ML150 G5 it hanged in the preinstall environment. From there, we restarted the computer but it wouldn't enter POST. The fans were running but nothing would pop up on screen.

We have since tried a CMOS reset, this works, however if we try to restart the server it requires a CMOS reset every time, otherwise it will not enter POST. (Once we do the CMOS reset, we fix the date and time, and have tried both Load Failsafe Defaults and Load Optimal Defaults).

The server also hangs if any devices are added while in Windows 2003 (e.g USB mouse, keyboard or printer)

Is there anything we can do to fix this?

Thanks,

Mel

Re: ML150 G5 Startup Problems

hi

has your server the latest System ROM?

also what is the server's configuration?
PCI Cards?
memory DIMMS?
storage? tapes?
