I ran the 32bit diagnostics and am getting the following error:
Error code: 2900:011A, 2900:021A, 2900:031A. Msg: IPMI - Unable to retrieve SDR information.
Can you please let me know what these error codes mean or post a link to a webpage that shows what these error codes mean.
Dell 32-bit diagnostic codes are cryptic at best - generic at worst. What is the error message being scrolled across the amber LCD panel? This will be a lot more helpful in diagnosing the actual problem.
Does the system boot to Windows? Are you seeing any error messages on the screen?
I don't see any messages on the LCD screen. All I see is a blue background light and four or five square boxes on the LCD. What is IPMI firmware. What does it do.
2900 error codes are always from the hardware logs. Use OMSA or DSET to view and clear the logs. If they are really old, I'd just clear them. If they are newer, you can troubleshoot them if needed.
jjosh7, I was wondering if you ever got your problem fixed. It seems that some of my current symptoms are very similiar to what you described, but I cannot seem to find anything more to try. New riser card does restore the lcd display, but now get E0276 error Mismatch VRM 2.
