    I was wondering if anyone could please help me out in this problem my cousin
    and I are having. we have a HP xw8000 motherboard, but we put this board
    into a U1 rack chassis.. the original HP power supply that came with this
    board does work but the U1 power supply we bought for this board.. 1U
    EPS Sparkle FSP460-601U.. well it did not work..after hooking it up, turned
    it on and got nothing but an error beep that the HP manual describes as:
    "Power supply is in protected mode, or system is hung in an undetermined
    on/off state."

    Power supply info: http://thcclan.kicks-ass.net/files/voltages.xls

    I need to know what power supply will work with this system board.. must be
    a U1 power supply to fit in the chassis. or is this a motherboard
    grounding issue.

    PS.. My cousin has more INFO about this issue with other responses at this
    website Forums:

    any help will be appreciated GREATLY.
    Please email at

    thank you

    Try the mobo outside 1U with RAM/Graphic/Floppy and PSU. I use a ground pad
    but a wood table would do. Let me know, as I did not have time to check spec
    on mobo/PSU. Some boards from tier-1 company has proprietary requirements.
