Poweredge 700 will not recognized memory


Unless only one 256-MB memory module is installed, the modules must be installed in identical pairs. If you want 512MB total, you will need to populate by using two identical 256MB modules or use the same technique for larger memory sticks. That model supports up to 4GB ram of the following type;

Your Model of Dell Poweredge 1800 server may not have a redundant power supply. The power supply is the most like cause of the problem. order a replacement power supply and replace the faulty unit.

I have an issue with the Dell PowerEdge 1800 video card. It displayed all the garbages (unreadable words) on the monitor when I first booted up or in the Windows 2003 OS. I went out to buy an EVGA...


Hi ngot01
Not knowing your application or tasking for your server, i cant make a full recommendation. I'm presuming you are not wanting to use this for a gaming machine.
One very determining factor is whether you are running 32bit or 64bit version of 2003. there are some fairly decent choices for cards but some won't support both 32 and 64 bit versions. If you have a particular card in mind, i would recommend first going to the manufacturers website and checking for compatibility with server2003

The geforce 5200 and 5500 from EVGA, PNY both come in PCI version with 128MB or 256MB onboard.
They are getting harder to find but are still to be found for a reasonable price online. i run a 5500 in one of my IBM X series servers dual processor with no hitches and no stability issues.
(32bit/64bit.)
32 bit support using older Nvidia drivers from Nvidia driver archives.
64 bit drivers currently available in latest Nvidia drivers version

The Visiontek Radeon 9250 PCI (ATI chipset) also runs well in both dell and IBM servers from my experience, and comes with 128MB or 256MB onboard.
64 bit support with current ATI drivers
32 bit support from older driver packages found on net.

One of the biggest considerations is whether the card will be properly recognized at first. Video cards and other peripherals behave differently in a server than in a desktop. Just dropping any PCI video card in may cause you some grief in time spent troubleshooting.
Another very important consideration is the video memory on the card.
Your 1800 requires ECC registered memory, but the onboard video memory on the video card can cause a problem when it starts trying to share the system memory. Not always, but this can cause a number problems, most common are blue screens.
Again, without knowing which version of 2003 you are running, i cant offer much more sound advice, because that is the biggest determining factor.
hope this helps, and if i have helped you, please dont forget to rate.

I want my Laptop Dell Latitude C800 physical memory upgraded to 128 mb to 256 mb I myself already installed 256 mb Ram but it still showing 128 mb of memory...can I get help in this regard ?


I assume you installed another 128Mb of RAM to give you a total of 256Mb.
It is most likely the 2nd RAM module is not compatible with the other RAM module. Try using the same make.
OR
Purchase and install a single RAM module 256Mb or 512Mb these are not expensive.

Physical Memory is limited to 256 MB" in dell 2600 poweredge


In the bios there is an option to install OS, make sure this is flaged as off, when you reboot you will have access to the full amount of onboard ram.
