Proliant 800 Will not boot.

I have 2 Proliant 800 workstations with the following problem.

On attempting to startup the error shown is
'Processor Installed In Incorrect Slot; System Halted'

No hardware changes were made to either machine. Both machines exibited the failure within 7 days of each other. In four years I have never seen this error on the 76 Proliant 800 systems that I work with.

Moving the processor to either slot fails to remedy it. Placing switch 1 posistion 6 into maintenence mode fails. Connecting extrenal battery to NVRAM fails to correct the problem.
Processor works fine in different machine.

I can find no reference to this error anywhere on the internet.

Both machines are production systems and I need them back up asap. Any help is greatly appreciated.. and oh yeah.. they are no longer under warranty.

Chad:

You may have failed PPM's on the servers, though the underlying cause of the failures needs to be addressed. Are these systems on clean power? (i.e., a UPS, etc.)
Try replacing the Voltage Regulator (a.k.a Processor Power Module)

Click the above "shortend" link and then select your processor speed.
Enjoy!
