Proliant ML370 G2 will not boot, beeps when 2nd processor is removed

Hello,

I just replaced the motherboard and the power supply. When both cpu's are installed, the server spins the cooling fans for 2 seconds and then goes off, it continues that process every 5 or 10- seconds until I shut the server down.

If I remove the second processor and it's voltage regulator, the server turns on, beeping every 2-3 seconds and never boots.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Hi,

what is the status of system board leds?
and
The Pentium III Slot 1 processor cannot be down-clocked; therefore, all processors must use the same frequency. Compaq does not support mixing processor frequencies

Thank you for the reply, all the system leds are green except all 6 memory bank leds are amber, 4 sticks of memory are installed in banks 1 through 4. The second processor is the same one that came with the server and was running when the server was functional.

Could you please give me information on the SW3 dip switches?

Your help is very much appreciated.

Thanks,

Matt

The attachment does not have the dip seetings for SW3, could you please post those?

Why when I install the second processor the system does not come up?

Thanks,

Hi,

That what i was pointing in post it is suppose to be factory default no changes need to be done onthat.

Q is:
Is server working with anyone of the processor?

Just a stab in the dark but is hyperthreading enabled in the bios? If so, disable it.
