Dell CPU Sensor error?

    Question by:


    Have a Dell Poweredge 2800 that randomly reboots.

    Running Server 2003 R2 with 1 CPU and 2 GB Ram.  No suspicious events in the Windows event logs.

    The OpenManage Embedded System Management Log has several of these errors:
    PROC_1 Status processor sensor IERR
    PROC_1 Status processor sensor recovered from IERR

    All other components are healthy.

    Bios, BCM and Backplane firmware are already up to date.

    Tried re-seating the CPU and applying new thermal grease, ran Memtest and Dell offline diagnostics - all pass.

    Any ideas?

    Tried cleaning the CPU and internals, re-appled thermal grease etc. - no change.

    Replaced the CPU with another one and the problem stopped.
