I have a rackmount server from INTEL that suddenly stopped working. The model is SR2400SYSD2. The server was functional and was shut down normaly for relocation. After being connected again it refuses to function at all. Both VGA ports (back and front) send no signal to any connected monitor. The LEDs on the keyboard do not shine. The thing is that when the power switch is pressed the server power-cycles normaly. I have openned the chassis and everything is in place. Please help.
Have you tried reseating the various cards in the system to make sure everything has good contact? I especially look at checking the RAM, this is usually what gets a little loose and needs to be reseated in order for the system to actually POST.
It sounds like the power to the system is fine, but it's not posting. So check the RAM, maybe the CPU sockets and see if that helps.
Dude, a reality check. Machines BREAK DOWN. When they break down, they get fixed or replaces. YOu must be VERY new to life if you never needed for example a car mechanic. Things DO break down, there is nothing special about it.
Now, what to do? SIMPLE.
Depending on when the server was purchased, do one of the following:
In general, this is a site for professional admins. I would expect a professional admin to be able to make a short diagnosis of the most obvious issues. Then refer that to a technician.
Sorry, we can not magically fix broken hardware over the internet. I suggest you get a basic education into how buying things work - the warranty part may be of particular interest. Depends how old the server is.
Looking at the model number in google reveals it is likely QUITE old - I see "Controller Type: Ultra320 SCSI" and that is by no means something I would expect in any machine of the last years. I also seem to be able to get some of them for a joke of a price, so - looks like the best is the garbage route and get a decent modern system.
