Proliant ML110 G5 heart beat light blinking

Hi everybody,

Something strange happens after I've tried to install a PCI Express card.

The server turns on just when I plug in the AC and then motherboard's light heart beat start blinking and nothing happen.

I reset the memory, CMOS and all the cables but I can't still access to the bios or install an operating system.
Someone's can help me to find the problem here.

Thanks in advance.

What kind of PCI-E Card do you have and what is it used for? Did you check if that card is compatible? Heart beat? There are many LEDs in the server wich one one starts blinking, hard drive activity, power? Is it blinking amber, green, red? Insight the system board or in the front panel?

Check the ML110 G5 User Guide on page 80 "Status LEDs" and let us know:

Hi,

So the system board indicators 1 and 2 are green and management controller heartbeat is blinking green.

I've already take out the PCI Express card. It's a Sunix SATA 2400P and I wanted to install two ATA HD to the server.

thank you in advance.

Hi,

Finally I had to call HP support in order to change the motherboard, once they did it, everything was fine.

I believe the issue will be either with the SPI card or possibly motherboard. If its in warranty with HP then they can help u in replacing free of cost otherwise a charge will be tehre. Incase of mother board i suggest to take help of HP completely.
