Red Off Red Red is "Resetting fixed media device" - see the TPS, page 91 (102 of 112) at http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/s5000psl/sb/CS-022619.htm
When you tried removing all peripherals, did you also try unplugging the HDs and CDROM?
Yes, this included unplugging all disks / optical drives / expansion cards (1 IDE HDD, 1 IDE optical drive, 1 RAID card w/3 attached SATA drives). The LED code sequence is the same however, whether the drives are present or not.
You could also try going down to just one processor and one DIMM, if you haven't already. But that's as bare as I can think of stripping it.
You could try clearing CMOS
and then the force BIOS bank jumper to roll over to the back up image.
Low chanc of either working since it died while in opperation, but these would be the next most likly after the other things you have done already.
You could try to recovery your BIOS since your problme looks like BIOS crash.
(that is what I said. The S5000PSL uses rolling BIOS so the oly NBios recovery is to use the BIOS bank jumper to force the BIOS to the back-up bank)
Did you get this solved ? am having almost the same problem and did what you did but still "dead" board
Any helped would be appreciated.
I am having the same issues. Has anyone had any luck?
I have the same issue, a few days the server automtically resets without previous warnings, the system comes slow, and today finally the same lie aschorer
1) off off red green
2) red off red red
3) off off off amber
4) red amber red off
5) off off red green
6) red off red red
7) repeat 3-6 (each loop through this sequence is accompanied by a click/pop from the motherboard; system status LED shows green)
The board is dead, maybe someone know how solve this issue?
As far as I know, if you don't hear beeps when you power on the system, then remove RAM and hear 3 beeps, this means the memory needs to be verified. See if you can run Memtest86+ against your memory. Or, you could power on the system with minimum RAM and rotate through the DIMMS until you find working or faulty DIMMS.
I have this EXACT same problem. same circumstances, no post. Any ideas, different CPU perhaps? Thanks guys!
