HP Proliant DL320 G5 PPM / CPU Fault lights.

    Question by:


    Hi There,

    I have a HP Proliant DL320 G5 it was given to me in a faulty state which I am trying to rectify.
    It powers on however there is nothing on the display no hdd activity, and the front panel is flashing red.
    I opened it up and powered on to see what activity was taking place and there is a CPU fault light which is amber and a PPM light which is also amber.

    I have replaced the CPU and powered on the system the lights remain amber with no display.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Many thanks
    Good Question?
