Proliant 2000 Boot Problem - DC10 departure

Ive inherited a Proliant 2000 which hasn't been turned on for 9 months , when I turned it on it makes a noise like a plane taking off and doesn't even boot to the Compaq splash screen.

I know that the person I got it from had been playing with the CPU cards and swapping them around.

Is their a key stroke or switch on the motherboard I can set to reset the config.

Hi Willie,

You want to look for the maintenance switch and turned on the number 6, which is the NVRAM switch. Then power on wait a minutes then boot back up with the switch back to its original state: OFF. But you might also want to receipt all the components in the system including power connectors and memory.
Hope this will help
