I guess you can't go into start button. /anyway how did you know if computing is powered? On your keyboard top line keys have screen control keys for brightness etc.eg f4. try.

Testimonial: "Hi. Thanks for the reply. When I switch it on, the green light on the motherboard comes on, the CPU fans spin, all the fans come on. The keyboard light flicker once as it should when you hit the power button. So all signs that there should be some boot going on. However, my monitor screen stays black and there is no beeps. Also I cant find the speaker on this server? So I am really puzzled. I have changed monitors or monitors I know works. I am stumped!! Regards"

SOURCE: No Boot on 1600sc

The easy answer is: Did you ensure the CPU fan connector is attached to the PROPER motherboard CPU fan power pins? The 2nd easy answer is: Are you sure your CPU is properly placed inside the socket? Could it be tilted slightly up on one side? The more complicated 3rd answer is: I've seen people use the spray can of AIR, which, believe it or not causes a moisture problem AND can overly cool a component. Although the motherboard looks fine, it won't boot or power on until the part(s) rewarm to room temperature or the moisture dissipates. This is how I solve this problem. I remove the motherboard or open it completely up to clean it with 80psi of compressed air. (remove all components) If it had previously been cleaned with a can of AIR, I let it sit for half an hour. When putting the parts back together (leave the HD, the CD, the floppy disconnected), (oh...ensure your front panel connectors are properly on the correct motherboard pins too.) 1)take extra caution with both the video card and the memory chip slots!! Inspect the video card gold edge and video card slot for a few strands of carpet fiber or DUST bunnies wedged or attached to the card/slot (which causes the computer to not power ON) 2) Inspect the memory sticks and memory slots in the same manner. (I had to see it with a magnifying glass, to see the problem) Once back together, if it boots, I'm done. If it didn't boot, I replace the power supply. If that didn't solve it, I reposition or change the RAM memory. Attention to detail is the key to success. ZT3000 "Beta tester of "0"s and "1's"

SOURCE: Dell PowerEdge 1600SC Server problem

I had the same thing happen in a 600SC about a month ago.
Replaced the memory, and it fixed the problem.

It did the same hang. Would run fine for any where from a hour to 3 hours, and then quit (hang). And I got the same message. Talk to them and it was a short in the memory module, so some times it would read the entire stick, other times it would "not see it", and that would lock the OS.

SOURCE: A power outage cause dell server 1600sc to shut down & no display on the monitor

Hello here is the homepage.

http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/ussoho1/Product/poweredge-1600sc

There should at least be a message on the monitor indicating there is no signal coming to the monitor. The first thought that comes to mind if all is connected would be that the power supply has failed.
And maybe the graphic card.

Call also the DELL support in your country they will be glad to help
and they probably know the fault.

Good luck

Our 1600sc dell server is beeping continuosly.


Check the PowerEdge Raid Controller for parity problems. Sounds like the status on the physical volumes participating in a RAID array has been degraded.

Loud beeping from a drive is usually an indication that an invalid drive array member has resulted in a degraded logical volume.

If you were counting correctly, you had at least three drives - most likely participating in a RAID-5 setup. The array might have been rebuilt with one bad drive. But it sounds like you've got two corrupt physical volumes in the array. And that's not good.

Hope you've got a backup!

Dell PowerEdge 1600SC Server occasionally beeps when running


Check out this site:

http://bioscentral.com/postcodes/dellbios.htm

Write down the exact number of beeps and how long they last to find what the error means. The are call BIOS post codes and they resemble Morse Code. (ie. one long, 3 short, 2 long = RAM issue) Good luck!!

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.

Beep sound


This problem is due to the mix of registered and unregistered DIMMs. 64Mb and 128 Mb DIMM's are unregistered memory technology 256MB is registered memory technology.
A mix of registered and unregistered memory prevents the server from completing startup, and results in an error beep sequence and a blank screen..Use registered memory and it will be fine..
