1. Make sure the server meets the minimum configuration to start (see Power-supply LEDs). 2. Recover the server firmware from the backup page by restarting the server. 3. Update the server firmware to the latest level (see Updating the firmware). Important: Some cluster solutions require specific code levels or coordinated code updates. If the device is part of a cluster solution, verify that the latest level of code is supported for the cluster solution before you update the code. 4. Remove components one at a time, restarting the server each time, to see if the problem goes away. 5. If the problem remains, (trained service technician) replace the system board.
