We had shut down one of our serve with intel board S5500VSA and did a server board, cpu etc cleanup with compressed air, after clean up when we restarted the server it show error 'bios detected configured disks w. inconsistent timestamps ' and the press any key to continue, but the keyboard does not respond and nothing happen on key press.

If we unplug any of the 2 hdd sata cable then the server goes ahead from that screen but is unable to find any hdd.

Please help.

Hello, are you using a USB keyboard?  If so, can you switch to a PS2 keyboard?  These are usually detected better in POST environment, with this error, sounds like the USB driver wasn't initiated yet.

We tried using the PS2 keyboard too but the problem remained same, the keyboard seem to get locked when on raid screen and press any key to continue doesnt work, nothing happen.

I see, the only other thing I can think of is did the CMOS battery get knocked out of its socket during the cleaning?  May be the system time that needs correcting, are you able to get into the BIOS at all on bootup?  If so, can you check the time to see if it is current.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Yes we can get into the bios and the system time and date are correct no problem there.

Just to add a solution to this problem... Found the hdd to be faulty and had to replace and reinstall the whole thing all over again. Painful but no shortcuts.
