Hi, I wondered if any kind soul out there might be able to help me troubleshoot a problem with my old faithful ProLiant server.

It comes under the hobbiest category here as I only use it for testing things, but much as you are not supposed to become attached to tech stuff and just move on, I like it and it has done me well so I am hoping to rescue it rather than replace it. I enjoy its multi-tasking skill of offering good virtualization computing whilst heating the office better than any heater I have

Having been shutdown correctly a few months ago, when I went to start it this time, it is totally dead. No LED on either rear power supply though the power supply fans are both running. Other than that nothing at all. No LEDs showing on the mobo or anywhere else at all. No power to the CD drive either to open it. You can hear something spinning up for a moment every now and again, then stopping but that is it. I wondered if someone could help me through with trouble shooting to find the cause.

What I have done so far.

Drunk alot of tea, scratched head repeatedly.

Swapped out both PSUs for known working ones. Same scenario.
Swapped PSUs around. Used bay 3 and 4, then 1 and 2, then 1 and 4 etc. no improvement either way.

Removed all RAM, put 1 in only.

Removed all HDD's replaced.

So all I have ruled out so far is that the PSU's are working, not sure what the next step to test should be. Any help would be very much appreciated.

Kind regards,

Ben.
