Swapping processors corrects BIOS error?
Posted on 2011-09-24
Each time our Dell PowerEdge 2950 has been powered off and the power disconnected from the back, we receive an Error 1410 at the BIOS screen and then it reboots its self. The only way we can resolve the problem is if we flip two processors in it (take processor A out and put it where processor B is and take out processor B and put it where processor A was). Each time this issue happens (four times so far) we just flip the processors and it works without errors.
My question is that since we have had the motherboard replaced twice already, what is causing the problem and how would we prove it to Dell?
Also, has anyone heard of this happening before?
