Question about Intel n440bx - Server Dual Slot1 Motherboard N440bx 686238

Open Question

Intel server after sucsessful installation old win OS on workable server the very next day BIOS was gone (black screen) and no beeps at all. Then jumping J2J1 to recovery boot (10-11)-no results, only 4-3-4-3 short beeps began sound. All are disconnected but CPUs,memory and keyboard. Upper CPU is warm always (of any two),and the down CPU is always cold (of any two). Floppy is inoprative (MB-?),workable itself. So any hope for renessance or MB is dead? thanks stanislav

I had this exact same problem, turns out i just needed to unplug a couple USB devices that were conflicting with the startup. It worked inexplicably well. If you have an external HD i'd start by unplugging that, then other accessories.

Here you maybe should not set the manual setting to 800 mghz.

Use the default setting as you can save and reboot it.

There may be a problem with the way the bios sees the memory. Also examine your manual carefully for indications of how the memory needs to be installed.
Some boards require two or more modules to be installed, and will not run correctly with out the modules required installed. Some of these boards will not allow mixing anything except exact sets. That is to say each module must be the same. Some boards are far more tolerant of kinds and makes of modules.
With out the memory, you will not have anything to run on.
So, I would suggest to let the bios set what it sees.
"Four 240-pin Double Data Rate 2 (DDR2) SDRAM Dual Inline Memory Module
(DIMM) connectors with gold-plated contacts
• Support for:
. Non-ECC, 1.8 V, DDR2 800/667 MHz memory
. Serial Presence Detect (SPD) memory only
. Unbuffered, non-registered single- or double-sided DIMMs (except double-sided
DIMMs with x16 organization)
. Memory configurations listed below:
• Up to 2.0 GB utilizing 256 Mb technology
• Up to 4.0 GB utilizing 512 Mb or 1 Gb technology
• Up to 8.0 GB utilizing 1 Gb technology
• A minimum of 512 MB of total memory is required"
To be fully compliant with all applicable Intel ® SDRAM memory specifications, the
board should be populated with DIMMs that support the Serial Presence Detect (SPD)
data structure. If your memory modules do not support SPD, you will see a
notification to this effect on the screen at power up. The BIOS will attempt to
configure the memory controller for normal operation."
So, the memory is dependent on the configuration. It appears that this board requires 4 modules at once to be installed, depends on the amount of memory per module as well.

Be careful about flashing the bios. By doing that you can ruin the bios and make the computer completely unusable until you get and install a new bios module, if you do not pick the exact correct flash version.

It appears from the Intel support site that the "latest" supported 64bit OS that includes a OS specific BIOS driver update is WinXP Professional x64.

You need to boot the server and press the correct prompt to enter the BIOS of your PERC RAID controller. There you need to manage your physical/logical volumes.

Chances are that either you had a drive failure or the metadata on your RAID volume (JBOD?) was corrupted. This is a common issue with these LSI-based PERC[5-6]i RAID controllers that Dell utilized.

Find out which BIOS is installed (websearch on server model) then search for Bios Beep Codes for that BIOS. Check what 4-3 4-3 means, you may find it is something simple. If you can get floppy working you may be able to flash BIOS but again you need to know which one

Change your boot order in the BIOS.

1. Turn on computer by Holding down power button while pressing the ESC key.
The machine will beep, then display:
Check System, then press [F1] key.
2. Release ESC key
3. Press F1 key

In the bios, go to the Boot tab, and make sure CD - DVD - or Optical Drive are the top of the list (see the legend at the bottom of your screen for what keys do what). Save and exit, then install your OS (save and exit is most often F10).

Windows won't see all of my 4GB of RAM but BIOS does! Why?

Windows xp will usually only see 3.5 gbs of ram even in your motherboard can support more. WIndowns vista does recognize more RAM or i also believe windows xp 64bit recognizes more ram. Nothing wrong with ram or your computer its just your operating system.
