HP Proliant server won't start

  1. Recently we purchase a HP proliant ML150 G3 server that runs Ms Server 2003. While working on it, the windows on the screen started appearing in a red faded colour. Whenever i try restarting the machine, it beeps continuously for about 5 seconds but does not start up. What could be the problem?

    Specs
    HP Proliant ML150 G3
    Ms Server 2003 Standard Edition (Service Pack 1)
    Intel(R) XEON(R) CPU
    5110 @ 1.60 GHz
    512 MB DDR2 - 667

    Video error i believe. If its screen is changing colour, it could be a pin fault in the cable. Check or change the vga cable, i assume its linked to a console of some sort.
    If you recently bought it from HP or a reseller, then it should definitely be warranteed. I wouldn't fudge around with it too much though if it is. Call HP and get it sorted.
