    Server died - advise seeked

    My server died today, couldnt acces it, when to look at it, Hdd stuck on, reset didnt do anything, pulled the plug, try again, al im geting is the fans/pwr light/hdd light/blank screen. I'll have to try the HDD in another PC, and then one all is copyed from it, i'll try and rejovinate the rest!

    The Mobo is an only MSI K7TPro1 and i was wondering if anyone has a copy of the manaul and could tell be what the diagagnoic LEDs mean (all red atm, )

    - Also, from the prilimary symtomes, and one got any ideas?
    - Feels like a dead Mobo to me?

    Today is the hottest day we've had this year, and the server is in the atic, so i think it might just have all got too warm and messed up? (although it was fine all last summer)

    Yes. (to the t-bird in the at-7)

    I had to run mine with a 1.4 t-bird for a while when the T-Bred I had didn't work with the board.

    Well, i had a bit of "play"
    - Tryed to boot again, nothing.
    - Disconcted the HDD, swoped the Grafics card for an old pci one, and booted of a win 2k disk, no problem.
    - Swoped the G card back, just as good.
    - Hooked the HDD up, boot of the cd, looked at the HDD, all still there
    - Restarted and booted off the HDD, Fine :S
    - Hooked it up to the network, mad a back off the whole HDD, Fine

    So, i lefted it running for 20mins, fine, 40mins, fine, 60mins later, its crashed!
    - Booted it up again, fine, temps all fine, and its now beeing running for about 30mins.

    Seams to be one of thos annoying computer days!
    - I'll see how it goes now anyway, otherwise, i dunno what i'll do, replace it maybe?

    I have a computer in the loft I use for rendering animations and running UD when not. It too was messed up by the heat of that sun! It turned off as the loft temp was about 45 degrees lol. I added some noisy fans and left it. That seemed to do the trick.
    Make sure that the motherboard mosfets are nice and cool, and have a look at voltages - maybe the psu is on its way out.

    Dam it, it done it again!
    - This time i just left in pluged for 2hours and it worked fine

    I think the mobos on the way our, maybe some of the electrolitics around the cpu (one looks a little bulged out!)
    - I though i might get one of the mini itx Eden boards, seeing as i never use any processing power.
