Came in today and one of our DC's was done. Did not respond to power button so pulled plug and rebooted. Went thru its normal startup process and then asked if I wanted to start in safe mode or normal. First time choose normal the splash screen came up with the scrolling green bar then the screen went black and came up with text

xxx/xxxx (system files scrolling as the counter went up) it got to the end and then shut down again.

Anyone ever seen this before? If it matters its an HP proliant 320 G5
