    Server Broken

    This is really following from Thread: I hate courier companies!!! I hate courier companies!!! in Behind the Red Door!

    Just got this server back!

    SCSI drives were hanging out

    Box was in a right state

    Turned the Server on and it powers on but with a lovely RED LED light "Internal Health LED"

    Following the PDF from HP's web site, looks like there is a failed CPU

    I've just popped the CPU into the other slot and the same, red led on the motherboard next too the CPU.

    Its a HP ProLiant ML350 G3

    So long as the socket ain't damaged you probably just need to reseat everything... fans, risers, psus, everything - don't forget the VRM.

    Couriers are horrible you're right.

    DHL picked it up.

    FedEx dropped it back off too me.

    Good News: I've managed to get the server going.

    I reseated the CPU and its booted up!
