Is it in a 1, 3, 2 beep pattern (beep....beep, beep, beep........beep, beep)? If so, the memory is either not seated well or may be bad. Try reseating your memory. If it continues, try with one stick at a time just to see if it will boot up with a display.

Thanks,
--Brian

SOURCE: Dell poweredge 1650 is beeping with blue flashing ...

Flashing blue light is harmless - it simply means the Identify button has been pushed. There is a small button with a white, cursive 'i' on the front and back of the server - pressing this will make the light flash blue (or make it stop).

Go to Dell's support site and view the manual for the 1650 for an explanation of the beep code - identify the pattern of the beep.

If you are still able to get to Windows, use OpenManage Server Administrator to check the Hardware logs and RAID array.

Try to turn off the server. Then press and hold power button on it for 8 secs. Turn the unit on. If the beep continues, then try to tear down the server by removing its cover, then remove/reinsert the RAM memory cassette. Place again the cover and turn the unit on. If still persists, I suggest to replace your RAM stick by contacting your pc manufacturer..

How to turn off Beeping sound


Hello,

Not sure what the beeping sound is but if it is an error code beep, go into your BIOS at startup and disable audiable alarm for boot errors.

Good Luck

Poweredge 600-SC RC 4Hr J3717 ASSY, Tray, (5Y002) Motherboard: what does it mean when an dell poweredge 600 sc pr...


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.

Constant beep on poweredge 840 appears to work alright


Hi

Besides standard beeps codes indicating Processor, CPU, Memory or Systemboard failures,
Dell PERC (PowerEdge Expandable Raid Controller) or SAS Controllers (Serial Attached SCSI) generate beeps to alert failures on the RAID sub-system.

From your description of the issues (when the beeps start), i suggest you check PERC or SAS setup. If you have Dell OpenManage Server Administrator installed, you can log-in and check for more information. Additionally, on the next reboot check the PERC/SAS/CERC boot up for any messages. You may also access the PERC (Ctrl+M), SAS (Ctrl+R) CERC (Ctrl+A) Management Menu for specific failures and attempt a rebuild (assuming you have a redundant RAID Volume).

You can also speak with Dell Support and raise a warranty call if the system has warranty.

Note: PowerEdge 840 would ship with PERC or SAS Controller. PowerEdge 700 will ship with PERC or CERC.

Beep sound


This problem is due to the mix of registered and unregistered DIMMs. 64Mb and 128 Mb DIMM's are unregistered memory technology 256MB is registered memory technology.
A mix of registered and unregistered memory prevents the server from completing startup, and results in an error beep sequence and a blank screen..Use registered memory and it will be fine..
