MPC Netframe 3640

I have a MPC NetFrame 3640 server that does not boot up to the operating system.  All the lights are on on the motherboard, but the drives are not spinning up like it normally does.  The server was working fine and just this morning went dead.

Check the Powersupply, the cables etc. Remove all the HD's and try booting just a bootable CD. Can you boot up?

I have check the power supplies with known good ones and still the same issue.  The server would not turn off by pressing the on/off button.  I have to pull the power cord in order to get it to shut down.

Then it could be anything that's left, a bad mainboard (possibly caused by bad caps, so check if there are any bulging, leaking or cracked capacitors visible), bad RAM (Remove all RAM and try to start the system, do you get any beeps or different behavior than currently), Bad CPU (only way to verify is to try it on a different system).
