I assembled an Intel server with original intel server board, I have a very noising problem:

When I power on the server the first time, all it's right, but when I power off the server or by software or by pressing the power off button, when I restart the server it' doesn't power on correctly i.e the server give power to the cpu fan and the power supply but doesn't power the video.
To solve this I HAVE TO DISCONNECT THE POWER CABLE OR OFF THE POWER SELECT ON THE POWER SUPPLY; Done this the server restart correctly!!!!
I have tryed all the things in my knowing , changed 2 motherboard , power supply, video adapter , chassis, I DON'T KNOW WHAT CAN I DO MORE !!!!
The intel channel support tell me that will delivery a new one motherboard, but I'm in hurry to selve this.
Anyone Can Hel me?

Server Power Problem
8th Nov-2005

Sounds as if you may have a Power Grounding Problem – Either missing Safety Ground or miss-wired –
Recheck wiring connections very closely –

What do you mean by [Power the Video] – [Monitor Power] – or – [Video Card] –

What is the action when you Power On & Off without the Server – The problem may be in the [Power Off] sequence – You do not want to disconnect the Safety Ground – Where the [Devices] cannot discharge Power Filter Capacitors - Then again it could be a problem with [House Wiring] – If it is an old/older building/house

Check the [Case] of the Server – to verify it is Grounded – Normally the PC Power Supply and Monitor are wired by the Manufacturer – but if Server was wired by others – this usually contains errors –

It is my experience – [Electronic Technicians] make poor [Electricians] – They constantly reverse Black & White wires -

In Electronics Black wire is usually Ground – In Electrical wiring – Black means DEATH – [120 Volt Line] –
[White is Neutral] and [Green is Ground]
