the machine used to work perfectly fine with dual processors until yesterday, it would not boot up any more. I can boot the machine up with single processor (any of the two processors, which means the two processors are fine) on slot 0.

Any ideas what the problem is?

Are you properly torquing the cpus down? Those boxes are sensitive to that, too much pressure and you can damage the board, not enough and it doesn't connect properly.

When booting single proc, did you try both sockets or just the 1? The other may be have had a component fail (they are getting old now!). You could replace the whole box with a blade 2500 and save on the power bill. :)

Thanks. Either processors will not boot on another slot, the system just shut down after couple of beeps. does this mean this slot dead?
