ML530 G2 PCI POST error messages

I have a ML530 G2 which every time it is rebooted reports a power failure detected in pci slots 1,2,3 & 4. The amber LED is lite on all 4 pci slots. The sytem board has been replaced as has the PCI backplance board, but same fault occurs. The rilo card, scsi controller & gigabit nic has been removed but still the errors occur. bios has been upgraded to newest version available from hp website. once booted the system works fine, smartstart diags & insight manager reports the 4 "faulty" pci slots are available, but amber lights still are lite.
If it doesnt work, hit it with a hammer

Hi Mister,

Check the below customer advisor, which explained about Performing PCI Hot Plug Operations. Also clear the Nvram if not done.

The NVRAM was cleared when the replacement systemboard was installed, the customer advisory above refers to a different fault, however, i have now replaced the power blackplane board and this has cured the fault.
