Re - inserted PSU & Memory Sticks , Power cycled Server.

Thanks to you all : Issue resolved. But i want to dig even deeper, What should be done from BIOS, except updating BIOS.

You could have a bad memory stick. Remove each one separately, then try it.

Do you get any beep errors on boot up? If you do, then it could be memory or the CPU or something else.

However, if you're not, then it's more likely your motherboard is toast. If you don't get beep errors, do as guapo suggested to rule out memory sticks but the fact that you can't get into the BIOS leads me to believe your mobo is done.

Ahhh, a hosted server. That's always good to know. Do you have BIOS access from your remote KVM connection? You should. Once they're done reseating your RAM and you reboot, definitely try to get into the BIOS and report back.

Aside from flashing the BIOS, there's not much to be done. I would definitely look into a BIOS update and check and see what, if any, issues it addresses. Sometimes it's not worth doing the flash and if there is an update available for your server but it doesn't fix anything important, I wouldn't bother. I've never tried flashing the BIOS remotely and to be honest, I wouldn't.

Other than that, keep an eye on it. If the problem doesn't occur again, then it's likely you just had a RAM chip that wasn't quite seated properly. If it does happen again, you may have a stick of RAM that's gone, or going, bad.
