Dell provides lifetime tech support for all PE servers. Call them at 800-945-3355 and give them the service tag or express service code from the server. If it can be done, they will tell you how. Good luck!
First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If this does not work then reboot and go to theBIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn'tdetect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Next - to determine if thehard drive is faulty, remove the hard drive and insert it into an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a workingcomputer's USB port. If this computer cannot see itas an external hard drive and you cannot open the various folders and files,this confirms the hard drive is faulty.
The hard drive needs to bereplaces in the laptop and Windows installed and the laptop's device driversand your programs etc to get a functioning laptop again.
It sounds like a hard disk has failed or fallen out of sync.
This can be a serious problem if not addressed ASAP.
Call Dell, they have lifetime phone support for their servers.
Write down the Express Service Code and Service Tag number that is on the server chassis before you call. This is the last number I used for server support: (800) 945-3355 If it doesn't work you should be able to find a valid number at support.dell.com
The controller (probably a RAID controller) that the drives are connected to is one for which Windows does not have the correct drivers. You need to supply the proper driver and .INF files during the initial load. The process used depends on the version of Windows you are installing.
When a Dell server beeps in every 3-5 second that mean it comes from Raid controller. Dell calls PERC Controller. It usually reason of a disk failure.
Install open manage server administrator on your server. See which disks are failed ?
Try to run Power edge diagnostics on the failed disk. If it passes the test reseat the disk. if it fails disk has to be replaced with a new one. If passes the quick test, reseat the disk and update disk + perc firmware and driver to the latest level. that will solve the problem!!
99% beeping comes from perc controller because of a failed HDD
