My xpenology now needs a monitor to restart

Recommended Posts

I have a xpenology NAS and it was working flawlessly for many months.

 

The last month every time I try to restart it, it dos not restarts. If I connect the monitor and keyboard it restarts.

 

I upgrate to latest dsm 5.2-5967.1 and I can not login to Synology account to setup quickconnect. I updated syslinux with serial and mac I found on excel mod file but still nothing.

 

Am I doing anything wrong?

Which HW do you use for your xpenology NAS? Maybe you can look into its BIOS settings if you find a setting, which prevents your HW from booting unless a keyboard and monitor are attached (possibly the BIOS battery is empty so that the settings have been reset to its defaults).

My motherboard is relatively new, it's the Biostar N3150, so I don't think it's a battery issue. Also I have never had any issues booting linux without monitor.

as a follow up to xplain suggestion - check the bios for 'halt on errors' - there could be sub settings for 'keyboard/mouse/monitor/all/none'

I will check the bios and I hope it is a setting there. I will update the post
