Hi,

You could try defaulting the configuration by turning on switch 6 on SW1 on the system board, and powering on.

Take a look at the maintenance and service guide available here:

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/UCR/SupportManual/TPM_281834-001_rev2_us/TPM_281834-001_rev2_us.pdf

Hope this helps,

Regards,

Rob

Hi,

I guess the next option would be to strip out any unnecessary PCI cards to see if any of those are causing the problem...

Cheers,
