I had the same thing happen in a 600SC about a month ago.
Replaced the memory, and it fixed the problem.
It did the same hang. Would run fine for any where from a hour to 3 hours, and then quit (hang). And I got the same message. Talk to them and it was a short in the memory module, so some times it would read the entire stick, other times it would "not see it", and that would lock the OS.

Just go into the bios and insert the correct parameters. you shut it off before it could save the settings. Or hit fi on boot and it should take you into the bios and you cand sort it out in there. If you want an easy way, just do a system restore. Start,Programs, accesorys, system tools, system restore, just go back a day or two before you had that issue, and you should be good to go, good luck

Either the power supplies have both failed, which is unlikely, or they are not connected to a hot outlet. Frequently servers are connected to uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) instead of being connected directly to a wall outlet. Make sure the UPS is on and functioning.
Dell provides lifetime phone support for their servers so you should give them a call if you need more help tracking down the problem. (800) 945-3355

If it's still working, there's no "requirement" to replace it, but Dell will probably not support it after a certain age.
Servers in general will fail on either power supplies or hard disks. Both of those are well past the average lifespan (what's called the "mean time between failure", or mtbf for the parts)
If you don't have an IT person or department, the simplest approach is to ask yourself this question:
"What is the cost to my business if this computer dies tomorrow?"
Then figure out how much it would be to replace the computer (purchase + install and configure)
If the replacement cost is less than the business-impact cost, then you should replace this 7-year-old box.
