PROLIANT ML110 G3 Cant boot

After adding a disk to my Proliant ML 110 G3 it cant boot. No signal is sent to monitor at all. The disk is removed again, but still no signal on the monitor.

What can be wrong?
What can I do to make it work?

Hi Finn:

- Remove all hardware that you are not using to post the server

- Minimize the server hardware. Remove all pci cards or cables plugged in to the server like usb etc.

- minimize memory
- Reseat processor and memory and try again.

- do you have any fan activity,


hope this helps.

Re: PROLIANT ML110 G3 Cant boot

I have already tried booting with only CPU and RAM connected.
CPU fan and PS fan is spinning.
All connectors have been unpluged and pluged in again.
But still no change.

Re: PROLIANT ML110 G3 Cant boot

check the power led on the front of the server.

------------------------------
Power/System health LED Indicator:::

- Steady green The server is operating normally
- Flashing red (2 blinks) Thermal event (THERMTRIP#)
- Flashing red (3 blinks) No CPU
- Flashing red (4 blinks) Crowbar (The power supply has been shut down by system while it is being powered up due to a main voltage rail failure.)
-Off The server is powered off
------------------------------
System board LEDS:::
1- 5V AXU Power Indicator Green System Board Error Off System is off
2- 3.3V AXU Power Indicator Green System Board Error Off System is off
3- System Error Indicator Red System Error
Off Normal
-------------------------------
- See Attached Files.
-
- if the server has no video at this time; could only be the processor, memory or system board issue.

- if you have removed all memory from server and tried 1 dimm at a time in socket #1
- and you reseated the processor.

- Then you have bad hardware , processor or system board,

But I would check the power leds and any other leds on the system board for fault lights.

Tarek.

Thanks for Your answer.

The memory is tested in another server and is OK.

My next step is to contact the local HP Office to get it repaired.

Have a nice weekend

Re: PROLIANT ML110 G3 Cant boot

Hello,

We have the same problem. We have a new Proliant ML 110 G4 and we can not boot this server. We are working in an enterprise and the shopping department is so slow to solve the problem.

The memory is tested and OK.

Did you contact with HP Office? What did they tell you about the problem and / or solution?


Could you help us?


Thanks.

Re: PROLIANT ML110 G3 Cant boot

I had a similar problem on my Proliant 8500
It turned out to be the pins on the interconect board (one had bent and stopped the signal to the video)so the system halted.
Maybe this is not your issue but thought i would mention it in case it helps.

Extremely old problem, but I have this exact same issue. Anyone have any solutions?

Re: PROLIANT ML110 G3 Cant boot

Well after some slaving I managed to narrow the problem down if ANYONE ever has the same issue in this day and age. The DIMM 3 slot is faulty on my ProLiant that I acquired. With RAM in the DIMM 3 slot the machine will not POST. The fans on the CPU and PSU turn, but nothing happens past that. I tore this thing apart and it had me really stumped. With no RAM or any peripherals besides the CPU and PSU it still wouldn't boot until I threw a 1 Gig stick of RAM into DIMM 1 (which I had tried before) and it magically started working. Somewhere along the way with my CMOS resets (removing the battery too) and just generally removing the motherboard from the case and giving it a once over it started working again. 

 

However when I put RAM in DIMM 3 the problem occurs. 

 

Hope this helps anyone who reads this or for any future google searches.
