IBM x3400 7976 - power failure

The server will boot to sbs 2003 as long as I hold the power button down, but if I release the button the server goes off.
AC & DC led-s are green. Any help?

Thanks in advance!

RE: IBM x3400 7976 - power failure

Known issue when there are bad caps on the system board. Replace system board.

Where can I buy parts for my x3400 server?

try Here. This is the board you need also.

RE: IBM x3400 7976 - power failure

I have one more question: Where are these caps located on this system board?

RE: IBM x3400 7976 - power failure

The ones that fail, are usually next to the PCI slots, check them carefully.
