Added new motherboard, weird power behavior
Posted on 2005-03-29
My server croaked. It started off first with errors on one of the disks, and then when I attempted to put in a new disk, all sorts of issues arose. I was able to initially get the new hard disk set up and an OS installed, and was running a few things on it initially and then got the blue screen of death and a memory dump, and from that point it was unable to boot OS.
I took the disks out and put them in a firewire enclosure and viewed them from another working machine. There I discovered that the new disk (that had been set upthen stopped working) had two partitions, although the boot partition had lost its name, and neither were accessible or bootable.
Decided that I probably had an issue with the IDE controller and opted to get a new motherboard.
I have installed the motherboard in the case. The original power supply is working fine, 300w, adequate for what I'm using. Installed CPU, memory, CPU fan, not really connected anything else.
When I power on the machine, the CPU and case fans come on for just a second, then stop. No beeps, no sound.
What does this indicate?
Thanks for your assistance.
