This system is fresh out of the box and we can't get it to boot up. It turns on and the the fans ramp up, but after a few moments the staus light goes amber, it shuts off and restarts with the same results. No video. It has an S2600IP motherboard with 2 E5-2690 2.90GHz Xeons, and 96 GB of Kingston KVR13R9D4/16I RAM. We double checked to make sure everything is seated properly. Does anyone have any ideas why it won't boot? Please let me know if you need any more information.
Thanks for the reply. I used 1 CPU and 1 stick of RAM in DIMM slot A1. System booted fine. I then switched CPUs to ensure that both were okay, and the system booted. I added RAM 1 at a time to DIMM B1,C1, etc. System will not boot with RAM in slot C1. Right now I have both CPUs installed, RAM in A1, B1, D1, E1,F1. As soon as RAM goes in C1, the system won't boot. Right before the system restarts the POST LEDs are, from left to Right, Out, Green, Amber, Green. Is the motherboard bad?
Everything appears to be okay with the DIMM and CPU slots. We discussed the situation with our vendor and they are going to send a replacement, since the system is so new. Thanks for all of the help.
