ML350e G8 - Will now power on but will not post/ boot. pink screen!

Hi,  my server will not power on - it makes a rythmic tick noise from the psu and health light and power light dimly flash together  (red and green respectively)  once a second.

 

Is this a failed psu? or is it worse?

Re: ML350e G8 - Will not power on.

Ok, we have moved forward a little -  after leaving it an hour or so it decided to power on without my help!  However on power on,  no ILO,  and video output is  pink flashing screen?  any idea what this means?

Hi,

Did you swapped/replaced CPU recently ?

Please check for any bent/damaged pin on Processor socket on the system board.
