E1000 is voltage error. First thing to try is disconnect power cable for minimum one minute and try again.

If error persists you need to contact Dell, it looks like your PSU, MB or possible backplanes are defective.

All errorcodes explained here.

After removing all PCI cards,  RAM, reseting the processor the server and powered on the server  the fan started with error msg on display intrusion as I have the cover open.

If I try to put all cards and memory back on I have the original error back again.

Can  I ask you which jumper I need to move in order to reset the NVRAM properly?

Hi Rod,

It is not a matter of resetting NVRAM. One of the devices you put back in is causing this issue.
Please 'undress' the server again and put one item at a time back in and test if it will boot.

If the NVRAM has invalid configuration data stored for whatever the "problem" component is, then clearing the NVRAM may help, but it is much more likely a bad component.

As pat said, put the components in one at a time in a process of elimination to find the bad one.
