Poweredge 2600/Powervault 770N does not boot
\015 Just got a used PowerVault 770N, that thing does not boot up at all.\015\012I get no VGA Display/output, no keyboard light, the system status light is blue for a few seconds, then the caution indicator blinks ("off" status + "blinking" caution = The system has detected an error and requires attention according to the Dell troubleshooting guide).\015\012\015\012I don't think I can use console redirection at this time to troubleshoot this further.\015\012\015\012I looked into finding a manual for the motherboard to see if any of the internal LED would give me any kind of hint on what's wrong (since no post code/sound is heard, I'm at loss).\015\012\015\012What would you guys try first/next?\015
