HP proliant micro server status light solid red- no vid- no HDD activity
I recently installed (couple days ago) win 7 on a HP proliant microserver (It has not been used in the past)
Last night I let it auto download/install 10 windows updates prior to shutdown.
Today- Tried turning system on, no video, no hdd activity and red hp status light (typically blue)
I took out main board, disconnected all cables, removed/reinserted ram and removed/reinstalled cmos battery. (power was removed from unit b4 hand)
Also removed 250GB hd and secondary 80GB drive.
replaced all- no change.
I don't think the win update had anything to do with this, but would like to know what I can do to troubleshoot further.
thx 4 any help!
update- I am not sure which is on/off for the cmos jumper. It is a 3 pin config-
tried with all off
2 pins on each side cap on
also as I previously stated, removed mos bat for 10 min and replaced
results no change.
I used HP rom in and effort to flash bios via usb, but I did not even see the usb device flicker (during 1st couple minutes)
The thing I do notice, is that the bluray/dvd drive does seem to run (aka spin during boot) I am wondering if it would make sense to try and make a bios boot disc and attempt to run it?
Chatted with HP "tech support" no help- they suggested the mainboard is bad. (Main board more expensive than server)
