will not post at all

I pulled 5000 server out of storage and attempted to boot. I get a green power light, a 20 cc read on the DC (not on the floppy at all) a double flash on the keyboard (bum lock, Caps Lock, Scroll lock) and 2 long bees then the system stops. In addition, the video goes to sleep. I attempted to boot from DC, since it was accessed, with the same results. Any ideas?

Re: will not post at all

Hi,

I know that this is an old post, but i have virtually the same problem with a ProLiant 5000.

It worked perfectly until i moved house and after a few months of being in a corner i turned it on for the first time to discover that it would not boot up at all.

It powers up, the fans come on, all the lights on all the disks light up momentarily, 2 lights on the keyboard light up for the briefest second. The big red Compaq logo appears on the screen and sometimes the memory check starts. But then the screen just goes blank, sometimes the memory check doesn't even start at all and the screen just blacks out after the Compaq logo.

The computer does not die altogether, the fans keep whirring and the green power light remains on, but that is it. I do not get any beeps, but a couple of times the middle green light on one of the disks came on and remained on, but nothing else happened, even if i left the machine for hours. No amount of rebooting or pulling disks in or out or pulling the cover on or off made any difference at all. It just does the same.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, just point me in the right direction.

Thanks in advance

Alan
