> le server suddenly stops working, no boot, no POST, no beeps, no video
*le frantic cursing on how perhaps that's why the fucking thing was only €60 🤬*
*takes out RAM*
> le server still not booting
*places RAM back without doing anything else*
> le server boots up again

Is this what they mean with things like "compile it again and somehow the compiler will not complain anymore after a while"?

    .. in all seriousness though, given that I've been awake for about 20 hours already, I'm too tired to be angry anymore.. at least the server's working again 😪

    Have been repairing computers for over 10 years. Can confirm this and remove/reinsert bios battery are the most common two ways to deal with unknown causes.

    @lunorian my DNS is ded ni🅱️a 😢 it was part of the containers that are currently under maintenance. Made me realize pretty well how badly I need a second DNS server in my network for failover!

    @epse it was a guy that happened to live in my area that was selling it on Facebook actually. I don't know how legitimate a €100 decommissioning of such a server would be (which is ostensibly what he bought it for from a sysadmin that was decommissioning it from their DC) but at least that's the story behind it.. so a couple of months of use in his network, guy now has a NAS and wanted to get rid of it apparently. Regardless of the truth to that story, for me it was a pretty good deal 😁

    At least this one is explainable.
    "Percussive maintenance may have altered the resistive properties"
    Don't kick your shit and put the HDDs in a foam or something to stop vibration.

    This already happened with me! Exactly the same thing. After taking of and putting the RAM again, it worked.

    Once at the uni (1997), a network were not working. I took of the cable, put it again, and nothing. My teacher at that time asked me to invert the cable ( put the connector of one machine on the other one) and it just worked.

    And once I was using the pc, everything working fine. I turned it off and remembered I had to get a file. I tried to turn it on, but nothing happened. No sounds, no display, fans began to spin and stopped again. I tried EVERYTHING but not worked. Frustrated, I just forgot about it for the weekend. On Monday, I touched the power button and everything worked fine!
