HP Proliant ML110G7 does not boot

Hi everyone,

We are currently facing an issue with one HP Proliant ML110G7 server.

When pressing the power button, the server fans start working, reach 100%, there is nothing shown on the server monitor (no bios, no boot screen). The fans continue to work at 100% speed and the server stays there doing nothing.

Do you have any ideas?

The server does not boot to windows, therefore it is not possible to have a taskmgr list.

First thing in this case is try replace PSU.
Fans work at 12V, maybe some other rail 3.3V or 5V died.

Thanks Predrag,

Will check and let you know. If the PSU is the case, that should give a red LED on system board, correct?

From manual:
Server component identification

System health LED

Green = Normal
Amber = System degraded
Red = System critical

But there is no other explanation.

Fans don't go quiet probably motherboard, enter machine serial number at partsurfer.hp.com to get spare part no. Won't be that cheap as machine fairly new.

Fans wont go quiet if one of V rails fail. Today two PC's came to service with same symptoms - both power supply replaced.

If motherboard fails can cause same symptoms, but I always try cheaper solution first.

The power supply arrived on site yesterday.
Replaced the old one, but the problem still persists. We are now checking the system board.

If anyone knows how to save the disk array when changing the board, will be much appreciated!

Thanks

Sorry  to hear that.

There was already discussion about that

It either has Smart Array B110i or P212 controller, with both of these the RAID configuration is stored on the disks rather than the controller so it should be picked up automatically when the mobo is replaced. You should only have to reconfigure networking due to MAC address change and possibly relicense the OS.

The quoted price for a new System Board was found excessive. Therefore, my management decided to buy a new Server instead.

Thank you each and everyone for your time and efforts!!
