IBM Xseries 346 Powers up then Powers Off without beeping
Posted on 2010-08-13
I have an IBM Xseries 346, when I press the power button it proceeds to power up, the fans spin like an American V8 roaring to life, then suddenly, it just powers off. There is a diagnostic panel on the front that yields me no results. I removed a scsi card from the back but that didn't fix it. I've since tried removing everything except the CPU and ram, one at a time, and I still can't get it do anything.
The motherboard has a diagnostic panel that displays 0 0 on me but I can't find anything on IBM's site to tell me what this represents.
The LCD it' is hooked to detects something is hooked to it because the backlight turns on, however thats where the good times come to an end, the LCD shortly thereafter the computer powers down also shuts off.
