Hi Pradip,

We can try following option to check with

Update the BIOS of the server.

Try to Disable ASR from BIOS where it is very important to make it on. Purpose to do so is to check for error code infomrations.

If any printer is installed un-install the same and then check it

check following doccuments:

Thanks for your reply.
System BIOS is the latest one. I am not able to upgrade the firmware of the array controller(SA3200), when trying to upgrade thru. offline method it is not booting from floppy. I am looking after the remaining part.

sometimes this server restarts if there is some contact problem between HDDs & drive cage. remove HDDs from cage clean cage contacts & drives, reseat firmly. you can also check for power connectors inside the server connected to the bridge card, on which I/O board & processor board are fitted.
