HP ProLiant Servers - POST Error Messages and Beep Codes

Introduction to POST error messages

The error messages and codes in this section include all messages generated by ProLiant servers during the Power On Self Test (POST). Some messages are informational only and do not indicate any error. All POST Error messages and beep codes occur before an operating system has loaded. Therefore, a server generates only the codes that are applicable to its BIOS configuration and hardware options that are installed.

To read the Post error message on screen the video sub-system of the server must be working. In the event that the video is not working, use the beep codes to troubleshoot the cause of the failing video during the Power On Self Test of the server. A failed processor, memory, video controller or system board can all cause a video failure during POST.

NOTE: HP ProLiant p-Class server blades do not have speakers and thus do not support audio output. Disregard the audible beeps information if the server falls into this category.
NOTE: This guide provides information for multiple models of servers. Some information may not apply to the server you are troubleshooting. Refer to the server documentation for information on procedures, hardware options, software tools, and operating systems supported by the server.
WARNING: To avoid potential problems with the hardware or operating system, ALWAYS read the warnings and cautionary information in the server documentation before removing, replacing, reseating, or modifying any system components.

The following ProLiant server error message information is arranged in lists below by the actual error message in alphabetic order first, then by the numeric error codes. To find a specific error message quickly in this document, use the find or search feature found in your web browser.

Error Message:
1736-HP Trusted Platform Module Error
Audible Beeps:
None
Possible Cause:
A Trusted Platform Module (TPM) is installed, but the System ROM is unable to communicate with the TPM.
Action:
Request a new system board and TPM board from an HP authorized service provider. When installing or replacing a TPM, observe the following guidelines:
  • Do not remove an installed TPM. Once installed, the TPM becomes a permanent part of the system board.
  • When installing or replacing hardware, HP service providers cannot enable the TPM or the encryption technology. For security reasons, only the customer can enable these features.
  • When returning a system board for service replacement, do not remove the TPM from the system board. When requested, HP Service provides a TPM with the spare system board.
  • Any attempt to remove an installed TPM from the system board breaks or disfigures the TPM security rivet. Upon locating a broken or disfigured rivet on an installed TPM, administrators should consider the system compromised and take appropriate measures to ensure the integrity of the system data.
  • When using BitLocker™, always retain the recovery key/password. The recovery key/password is required to enter Recovery Mode after BitLocker™ detects a possible compromise of system integrity.
HP is not liable for blocked data access caused by improper TPM use. For operating instructions, see the encryption technology feature documentation provided by the operating system.
