R710 stuck at splash screen

Hey Chris,


I have done all of that and even swapped CPU1 with CPU2 and tried every RAM stick in the A1 slot and it is still hanging at the BIOS screen.


Is there anything else I can do?

RE: R710 stuck at splash screen


Take the server to its minimum to post configuration, thats the minimum components to allow the R710  


•System board
•Processor (CPU1) with Heatsink
•Power Supply
•One stick of memory in dual in-line memory module (DIMM) slot A1
•Control Panel with cable


Try powering under that configuration and see if it still hangs. If so then power down, remove the power cables, hold the power button for 20 seconds to drain flea power. After that then locate the NVRam_CLR jumper, as seen below, move the jumper over and power the server to clear the NVRam. After that then power down and restore the jumper to its original location, then power up and see if it still hangs.


Let me know.
