Troubleshooting/Support Request Checklist
Support Request Checklist
For Raptor Computing Systems support to accept a request for support, we first require that certain basic diagnostic checks are completed. Please select the general category of problem from the list below to determine the steps you must complete before submitting a support ticket.
Support tickets sent that do not contain the required information will be automatically closed with a redirect to this Wiki page
SYMPTOM: System will not power on
Please complete the following procedures. You must include the information gathered from the diagnostic commands below. A separate computer running Linux or Mac, along with a DHCP server (which can be run on the Linux or Mac system) will be required to complete all of the diagnostic steps.
Step 1: Does the system attempt to turn on when you press the power button? The orange power status LED on the mainboard will turn green if the system is powering on.
- Does the system turn off again after 10-15 seconds?
- Action 1.1: Remove mainboard from case and unplug all adapters, add on cards, and cables except for the PSU and one stick of RAM. Place mainboard on non-conductive, static-free surface and attempt to power on again by carefully bridging pins 1 and 2 (power switch) on the front panel header.
- Do you see a boot status screen on the VGA or HDMI port?
- Action 1.1.1: Take a photograph of the text on that screen after all activity has stopped for at least 30 seconds. Send the photograph in to firstname.lastname@example.org along with an acknowledgement that you have reached Action 1.1.1 on the troubleshooting guide.
- Action 1.1.2: Follow the BMC Connection Guide and return here. WIP.
- Action: Verify BMC startup has completed
- As indicated in the users guide for your mainboard, there is a BMC boot delay during which the front panel LEDs will flash in a specific pattern. Until this pattern stops, you will not be able to start the system.
