Prolaint DL380 G3

Alright, it beeps telling me there is no RAM inside the server. I installed 1GB of RAM, and i'm not sure if the RAM is faulty, the MB faulty, OR I don't have enough RAM inserted. Can anyone, tell me what the issue could be?

Re: Prolaint DL380 G3

1 GB of memory should be enough for it to boot. When you put the memory in was there any change in the behavior? What type of memory did you install? It is likely memory at fault, but it is possible there could be a system board problem. When did this problem start and what led up to this?

Re: Prolaint DL380 G3

Well, I got the server from someone, it was in working condition at the time. It came with nothing, so I bought 1GB of DIMM DDR ECC for the server, and it can't recognize the RAM apparently. Not sure how it led up to this stage, it was fine when I seen it, but they took everything out of course.

Re: Prolaint DL380 G3

It's been a while since I have worked on one of these, but I realized this server requires the memory be installed in pairs. Do you have 2 DIMMs installed in bank A?

Re: Prolaint DL380 G3

There is only 1 RAM installed for the whole thing, i'm guessing I need one more to make a pair?

Re: Prolaint DL380 G3

Exactly. The cover illustration will show how much memory is needed and where it needs to be installed.

Re: Prolaint DL380 G3

Well, thanks again. Wish I read everything before I bought the RAM, now I need one more.
