Frequently Asked Questions Q: What can I do to remove the memory or CPU error message after the error has been resolved?A: CPU Error Message
If the server has experienced a CPU error, it is displayed during POST each time that the server starts or restarts. If the problem is resolved, the error may still exist during POST. If this happens, start (or restart) the server and then press the F2 key to enter the BIOS Setup utility. In the BIOS Setup utility, on the Main menu, select Processor Settings, and then press the ENTER key. On the Processor Settings page, select Processor Retest, press ENTER, and then select Yes. Press the F10 key to save the settings and exit. When the server restarts, if the issue with the processor was actually resolved, the POST error message does not display anymore.
Memory Error Message
If the server has experienced a memory error that has since been resolved and an error message is still exhibited during POST, run a Memory Retest. In order to retest the memory, restart the server and press F2 to enter the BIOS Setup utility. In the BIOS Setup utility, select the Advanced menu. On the Advanced menu page, highlight Memory Configuration, and then press ENTER. On the Memory Configuration page, select Memory Retest, press ENTER, and then select Yes. Press F10 to save the settings and exit. When the server restarts, if the issue with the memory was actually resolved, the POST memory error message does not display anymore.
Error Message Still Exists
If the error message still exists during POST and all prior steps have been taken, the server may have an issue with the baseboard management controller (BMC) requiring the BMC to be flashed. For instructions on flashing the BMC, refer to the FAQ on Updating the 995 BIOS and Firmware.
