S3200 SHLX Server Board Failure?



I have a server with a S3200 SHLX Server Board with a Xeon CPU and 8Gbs Ram (corsair).

Have a little problem where this machine will shut itself down whenever it wants to. By shutting down I mean, BAM!!!! NO POWER system is OFF.

There are no Windows 2008 svr warnings or error, nothing in OS Logs nothing...

I have checked the UPS the power, even have a digital clock radio connected to the same power as the server to test for lack of power to the machine. Changed the Power Supply in the server today, still getting the same results. The server just POWERS OFF. monitor still running etc


So, when you turn the PC back on again (after the POWER OFF EVENT) it starts up with a beep code of High/Low High/Low.then it goes on to boot back into windows 2008 svr. 15-20 mins after I restarted the machine, Bam!!!! off again. restart. same beep codes.

I am suspecting either a Bad Server Board or a Bad Processor. Any clues?

Looks like thermal issue to me. Check if your CPU thermal solution is properly installed. Check SEL and see if you can find any errors, using the SEL viewer.
