This is the backup server (used for backups). It was working early this week. Just stopped.  I get the inrush fans at startup but thats all. It quiets back down, and beeps 1 3 2. No video. I have a spare 2850 out of the rack ready for canabalization.

    Do you get any hard disk activity after the beeps?  It could just be that the video has failed....

    Accepted Solution

    This indicates a memory failure. This can be from a single dimm, multiple dimms or the system board itself

    Remove all memory and test each dimm in slot 1A and see if it posts. If it wont post on any of the DIMM's then its most likely the system board
