DL380 G5 Internal and External Health lights red

I have acquired a proliant dl380 g5 and I have an issue where it will not power on. It runs up the fans for a brief second and then shows 2 red LEDs for internal and external health.

The unit has no hard disks installed at this time and I'm not sure if this would be the cause of the issue.

After searching around some more I think the issue is the power supply since the psu is making a high frequency chirping sound even when not in the server. It also gets very warm even when not plugged into the server. Also the power supply light is shown as amber on the front display. Is there any way to be sure?

If the power supply light is amber, it is not conforming to specs, for sure. You can see more details by using HP Insight Manager on the server, should be on the Smartstart disk to install.

The problem is that the server will not power up. It runs for a moment but before the fans have time to reach speed it shuts off and shows the error lights on the front. LiO2 wont seem to work either. It may be that its previous configuration has it set for a static ip address.

The early revisions of DL380 G5 power supplies suffered from a fault that will cause this behavior. I can't find the HP advisory at the moment.

Do the earlier revisions have the higher clear air baffle over the memory? Or is there another way to tell. I believe it is an earlier revision because it has the xeon 5150
