    intel s5000pal with e5345 hangs during power up - no post


      The board is an s5000pal with an e5345 (have also tried an e5140) that hangs between early initialization and post. The sequesnce is:


      1. power on

      2. blue id led on then off

      3. status led green, four amber flashes, then solid green

      4. power button

      5. fans spin up

      6. hang


      This has happened with 2 s5000pal boards and two cpus. Both boards ran, one for several months.


      When the boards were running the sequence above was on step 3. the status led would go to amber, then successfully enter post after step 5.


      I have not tried a new PS, that is next. The question is:


      1. is there a master reset sequence beyond powering off?

      2. is there a component fail or boundary condition between the initial status and power on?


      Thanks in advance - Dan
