Hi,

I have an old HP Prolaint DL360 G4 and I decided to turn it on to see if it still works as it has dual Xeons. I booted it up, but no video appeared but I could hear the hard drives spinning up usually, but still no video. Anyone know any reason why?

Thanks

Could be a whole bunch of reasons!
For starters:
Check the cables, make sure none of the pins are broken and that the cables are properly inserted.
Check that all the components inside are fit properly and that none of them have come loose.
Check that none of the lights on the computer show any weird patterns (such as a big red warning light on the motherboard being on).
Try connecting using iLO and see if that has any information.




Regards
Stefan Andres Charsley

Yeah, Internal Warning light is red. Can't connect to iLO as I don't have the IP.
