The fans that are plugged into the motherboard are usually powered by the motherboard. To turn them off, simply unplug them as there is always a power flow going through the motherboard and even more to power the fans when the system is running. I would recommend keeping the fan in if possible to help with cooling your PowerEdge 1400 server, but if it must be removed, simply power your server down, and unplug the fan. Make sure your server is powered off before doing this, as you don't want to short anything out or cause a spark.

Duo core motherboards will not support the bus speed or the power output to power on that processor. You need to upgrade the motherboard with the new processor.

Since more then one fan is going crazy after 5 minutes, try these things first:

Make sure the server has enough space where air can ventilate properly. Also make sure there is no dust or dirt sitting on top of the fans cause lack of air ventilation can make the fans start acting up. Also make sure the room is staying nice and cool so that way cool air is being ventilated thru the server.

If you have done these things and your server is still acting up then your motherboard is starting to go bad cause that means the motherboard is having trouble regulating the voltages going thru it and thats why the fans are running really crazy the way they do.

If its just one fan I would say replace the one fan but since both are acting up, I doubt that both fans would go bad at the same time.

IBM X-206 SERVER : NOT BOOTING : HANGS


As a first step, I would check to see if the power supply has become defective. There should be no foul smell comming from any part in your computer, so get in there and figure out which part is stinking up the place.
Other reasons for a computer not booting;
defective motherboard defective RAM or poor connection from RAM to motherboard defective peripheral or poor connection from peripheral to motherboard

you may have a bad mother board or power supply,however try a few of these,bare bone the system,no mouse keyboard,only monitor,remove all internal cards,power on.If no go remove memory ,power on if you get beep tones the motherboard is good.Question for you did the fan turn during these steps.Do you have a amber light on the power button,if you do the answer is you have a bad power supply.
Good luck

No display cpu fan are'nt running though there is green and orange light on server


Hello there,

Check your power supply and see if its functioning.

CPU fan that does not run means there is no power getting into the motherboard.

Thank you for using Fixya

Concise Question, Poweredge 1800 powerup failure


It is definitely the PSU that's not working properly,because defective motherboard should still receive the 12V. you can use a desktop standard power supply to check if the server runs fine, even a cheap one is ok for a test run. they sell also cheap (about 15-20$) PSU tester, definitely worth when working with servers and WS.
the Power supply fan might have a dedicated rail coming from the thermal sensor(thermistor.)this is why it can run even with bad 12V rail.

1 and 4 fan problem


This might happen when it detects a non-functioning fan (to preserve all other components).
We've had the same problem on one of our server, one fan wouldn't start (needed more current to start it)

We had to replace the motherboard on server to make it work, since this one got it power from the MB.
A temporarily fix was: Pop fan 4 out, give it a push so it rotated and quickly insert it before it stopped, hope it won't be stopping until you receive a new motherboard.
