    If youleave the video card and all but one strip of ram can you get it to post the BIOS? f not the BIOS is either bad or the mother board.

SOURCE: No Video Signal on 1600sc

Disconnect from the network and all other accessories, and power up the system, this might be due to a faulty device attached to the system, eg: when you connect a usb faulty device the boot takes very long time, sometime it does not boot up.

SOURCE: Dell PowerEdge 1400SC Can not locate hard drives or partition

You need to download Dell's Storage Managment ISO file, create a CD, boot the system with this CD and set up the array. This will also give you the option to install the O/S with no user input.

The hard drive indicator light of my Dell Inspiron 17 constantly flashes.


The hard drive LED is flashing because the video is data being retrieved from the hard drive. The fan runs high because the video card is working hard and creating a lot of heat. This causes the laptop to shut down.
How to fix
Get more memory.
Get a laptop cooler rest.
Get the dust and junk blown out of the inside of the laptop

Dell PowerEdge 2300 Server won't boot


To power off using the power button, press and hold in for more than four seconds.

However this is not solving your problem of not booting, needs some more information. Such as Beeping noises, number and length of beeps. Or any LED.s flashing?

X 346 powers on, then shuts down - no HDD installed


Even without the harddrive, you should be able to see the server power up with Bios/Memory test. It should be able to indicate to you that no drive found. In addition, you should be able to press F1 or F2 to enter into system setup.....hope this help

System will power on for about 3 seconds and then shut down and the blue indicator light on front is flashing


your poweredge has detected a hardware fault. If it is under warranty contact Dell. If it is out of warranty, you might carefully open the unit, and locate the fault diagnostic leds. They should be lit indicating the code for the fault condition/part.

Dell PowerEdge 1400SC Can not locate hard drives or partition


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.

Bootup Problem - Dell Poweredge 2650


Process of elimination? I first thought it may be a power problem but I could not understand the LED flashing (It still maybe a power problem) If you can leave on charge for 4-5 hours more if you can make sure the light is not flashing (That is turn the laptop off at the power switch) Try turning on after being on charge for as long as you can If that does not work it may be the bios with the wrong setting or the Hard Drive is faulty (The more I think about it I think it may the the last issue) Try the other steps first the turn on holding the DELETE button it (I think that is the button to access the bios ) This with work if the Hard is Good or bad)
