My boss gave me a project: he got a Gateway E-9525R server that does not do anything at startup. He asked if I could revive it somehow. No one is really sure what happened to it, rumor has it the BIOS flashing went wrong.
When it starts, I get no video, the monitor stays in the power save mode (attached over VGA, I tried the front and back connectors). The motherboard has 8 LEDs that issue error codes, and most of the time the error code is E1, the explanation for it is not in the server manual.
I tried restoring BIOS, resetting BIOS settings, and followed the other suggestions (from the manual) to restore BIOS, but it still does not react to anything.
What else can I do to get it to work?
