Dead HP Proliant ML310 G5 - amber light number4

Hello,

This morning I found our server HP Proliant ML310 G5 dead. There was only front led number 4 with amber light - which stands for "AC power in stand by mode". The server cannot start now. What I tried:

1. Removing the motherboard battery
2. Reseating everything
3. Tried starting the server with no controllers or devices connected.

After all that - the server seems to starts, all lights green - but nothing on the monitor it is just staying like that.

Until we are waiting for other points of view of this issue, what are the possible scenarios of building back the RAID as it was. I have a backup of it, but just for testing purposes I want to play a little bit with it.

Sounds like mobo to me too. As far as RAID goes it depends on which controller it has in it. If it's Smart Array controller it'll read the config from the disks since nothing's stored on the controller itself.

if you have a video card around, you could check if you get a display
also check for bulging or leaking capacitors

Just a quick update. The new motherboard is installed, and server is running fine now.

Thanks all for the help.
