Proliant Microserver Gen8 Flashing Red Light

Hello, I bought this microserver 2 days ago but the server is not booting and the red light is flashing quickly. It seems to be a power failure. Is there anything I could try prior to returning it? The pcie plate has been removed so I assume the server is not completely new and someone has tried to plug a pcie video card but just guessing. It's a shame as this server is quite difficult to find nowadays. Thanks!

There should be no PCIe plate/board to remove. The systemboard has only 1 PCI slot. As far as the issue is concerned, I am assuming that this is the Health LED that is flashing. This server should have iLO and if you have configured it and can connect to it, the Integrated Management Logs should tell us more about the actual failure. Also, try disconnecting all the components including the power cable and perform a power drain, i.e. press and hold the power button for 10-15 seconds. Connect only the power cable and a monitor and check if there is a difference. If the server comes up, check if there are any applicable firmware updates that can be performed.

Hi, Thank you for your response. I've already replaced the mainboard with a new one they have sent me from tech support. It is working fine now, should've closed the thread if it is possible, I'm sorry. We were making some checks with the ILO and tried to reset the bios with the jumper #6 but it didn't solve the problem.
