Proliant 800 voltage regulator

I attempted to install a second, matching processor in my server and I get an error "215-nonfunctioning voltage regulator module for second processor". The processors work individually when installed in the first slot. I've swapped processor locations and continue to receive the error regardless of which processor is in the second slot. Is this some proprietary issue with Compaq? Can someone provide a solution? Thanks.

Re: Proliant 800 voltage regulator


What is the processor speed ( both are same). What is PPM Part no which is installed on the server and If the Processor part no you have. Does this error message generate any error code in IML also.

Since it seems to be issu with the PPM. confirm the part no.

Re: Proliant 800 voltage regulator

Thanks but just call me a Compaq newbie....Could you clarify what PPM and IML are? Both processors are Intel PII-450. I ran the Compaq config program and it doesn't see the second processor.

Re: Proliant 800 voltage regulator

Hi Everyone, I have a similar problem like Eddie.

I've just received a hand-me-down server
that's been striped bare. Just the chassis, PSU and mainboards.

I figured that this server would be great for learning some Linux/Win2k3 installs so
I was hoping to revive it.
I've managed to locate a pair of processors,
some memory but it seems that I'm still lacking the correct PPM/VRM modules.

I've looked around and cross reference several websites to try to locate the correct PPM/VRM part number

and found the below PPM that I think will work but upon insertion, the machine powers up but no post. The LED on the mainboard lights up but no post.

Is this the correct PPM module I should be using?

spare 329257-001

Where I can reference the correct part number so that I can place an order for it?

Many Thanks
