Proliant 5000

We had a proliant 5000 server for few months. Today the server will not power up. We tried to reset the CPU and the memory but the power goes on for few seconds and then it is off. We removed all cards and cpu and memory and reset them one at a time. It is always the same. Power comes up for few instants and then it is off. Any ideas?

Re: Proliant 5000

Normally I would think that it is overheating, but it sounds like the machine was off for awhile. Did you reseat all the connections from the power supply? I would even take a look at the power switch in the front to make sure none of the wires are frayed.

I'm not sure how easy those power supplies are to find.
