Power on and off and on and off and...

When power button is pushed, the server begins to power up, then after like 3 seconds, it shuts back off. After about 10 seconds, it trys to start again, then shuts off after 3 seconds...etc... I think the problem might have something to do with the PPMs, but if someone knows anything about this, please let me know. How processor specific are the PPMs anyway? Any information will be helpful. Thanks for your help in advance!

check that the lid of the server is fitted correctly and that, if the server has them, the reed switches on the case have not been missaligned. If thats not the case check this URL out for the PPM matrix
