Proliant 1600 Will not boot up

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!

yeah...since your machine does start up.. you dont' see anything in your logs because the power just went out.

Just a thought..is this server on a UPS? or a operated by a wall switch?  If not, then it is the PSU.

Since the lights go on, then go off (except 1) that all points to power.  Consider when the server was on, all was working.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I just went down to look at the replacement # and the screen showed the words "Power Save". Is this further confirmation?

irwinpks,

you were right on - new power installed and away we go. still logs on slowly, but think I might have a proc board problem - two bad memory slots. Will have to replace that and see what happens next. Thanks for the help!
