Why won’t my Dell Poweredge server boot?

Ras Magombe Steven November 6, 2012

I have a Dell Poweredge T610 server that I left on while I was away. When I returned I found it would not start. The green lights behind it are on, so I know it gets power, but it does not boot when I press power. What could cause this?

    Could be a failing PSU.

    Maybe it is broken, Try to check the inside. Or maybe it is just too hot.

    If I remember right, this model has an LCD panel on the front of the system where you can look at the SEL (System Event Log). Are there any error messages in this log?
