Proliant 1600 Will not boot up
Posted on 2006-05-04
When I arrived at work Monday my Proliant 1600 was not responsive, so I did an hard restart. After boot up all seemed to be well. Tuesday morning I came in and had to do the same thing again, so I looked at the event logs, but found nothing out of the ordinary, or at least that I could tell. Same thing happened yesterday with same story. This server is running Windows 2000 SP1 with what I think are the most current updates. Today the server was down again, but now it will not boot, even to the SmartStart CD, so diagnostics are difficult to say the least. The only info I have is when the LEDs on the drives light up to start, they all light the lower green arrow, then the main green drive, then the top light with the red "X" lights then all but the first go dark. The first drive shows one green arrow lit. Does anyone have any suggestions? This server is running as a file server for our school, having it up and running is an important thing for me!
