Question about Dell PowerEdge 1600SC Server

1 Answer

We have an old Dell PowerEdge SC430 that beeps continuously, however it's functioning normally. We replaced the motherboard battery, as that was the first guess, that didn't work. It's has no RAID setup.

It seems to be DRAM refresh error. Kindly unplug the RAM and plug it back.

dells power supplies must come from dell. I would call dell and give then the service tag number of your server and they will be able to tell you about how much a power supply is.

SOURCE: Dell poweredge t110 Raid 5

In a RAID 5 config, you need at least 3 drives (you can have more however). A small part of every drive is then reserved for recovery data for the other drives. So two drives together hold all the data needed to restore a 3rd drive.

The Raid Controllers in the Dell Poweredge Servers are hot swappable. So you can just pull the faulty disk and then insert a new replacement drive in the same slot (Needs to be the same type and size or bigger. However, if the disk is bigger than the other 2, then only the size of the two other disks will be used on the new drive). The Raid controller will then see that there is a new disk and automatically start the recovery process. You will be able to see this when you open the Controller software. Once the recovery is done, the RAID 5 will be fully functional again.

While one of the disks is faulty or missing the two remaining disks will continue to work, but at the severely degraded performance. After the rebuild the performance will be back to the way it was before.

The rebuild can take more than an hour, depending on the disk sizes used.

There is also an option on some Controllers to select one drive as a "spare". Then you insert one more disk and set it as spare. It will not start working unless one of the other disks in the Raid fails. That's when it is used automatically as a replacement.

I am having a problem with my dell poweredge 1800, it beeping continuous


Assuming this is still an issue...old as it is...

You need to boot the server and press the correct prompt to enter the BIOS of your PERC RAID controller. There you need to manage your physical/logical volumes.

Chances are that either you had a drive failure or the metadata on your RAID volume (JBOD?) was corrupted. This is a common issue with these LSI-based PERC[5-6]i RAID controllers that Dell utilized.

PowerEdge 2850 server beeps as soon as it is turned on - 3-2-1 beeps format. What has failed?


the beeps are post during post the very first work is done by the ram,all the memory in the ram is first transferred to the hard disk,and remains active untill turned off.

make sure that your RAM is securely seated

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty

a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and to have and end to function
obvisously the beeps are windows searching for some hardware it could be RAM cd/dvd hard drive or motherboard all of these must have secure connections for the computer to work
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure make sure the connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
hope this helps

Dell Sc430 Poweredge gives out Hot Air...Nothing to do with the performance all stable .but it gets difficult to sit around it and work..


What can I suggest?
Maybe there is a problem with the processor working too hard as there are too many files to get through?
Maybe a virus is in there making the hard ware work too hard?
Have you noticed the hard drive light working more than normal? if so this could be a reason as the processor will have to work harder, causing more heat, when it is busy trying to cope with an extra problem.

Three sets of beeps, or three individual beeps? Does it repeat? If so, then check this for the code you are hearing:
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/pe600sc/en/it/1r237c20.htm#1046231

If it is a steady once-per-second beep - or a constant screech - and it is able to boot to the OS (or even most the way), then it is probably your RAID controller. Boot to CTRL-A or CTRL-M to check the status of your array.

Beeping Upon Bootup


dependent on how many beeps you hear is dependent on what might be the problem. A fuller explanation from pushing the power button to nothing happening would be more than helpful. Beeps in a Poweredge can mean motherboard, memory or as you said power supply problems.
