Question about Dell PowerEdge 1600SC Server
I have a Dell PowerEdge 1600SC device that was turned on. I needed to leave without waiting for it to power down, so I pressed and held the Power button until it shutdown. :-(
Now, when I turn it on, it does not recognize any of the I/O devices (i.e. monitor, keyboard, or mouse). The monitor, keyboard, and mouse were directly connected to the Belkin Omni Cube 2-port device, which in turn was connected to the server at the time that I shut the server down.
To eliminate the possibility that the Omni Cube device was the problem, I connected the monitor, keyboard, and mouse directly to the PowerEdge 1600SC server. However, again, the server didn't recognize any of those input/output devices.
I then disconnected the monitor from the PowerEdge and attached it directly to my laptop to make sure that the monitor is working. The monitor is working as I was able to use Fn + F7 on my laptop to display contents from my laptop onto the external monitor.
My Dell PowerEdge 1600SC has the software for my Linksys Wireless-G 2.4 GHz Broadband Router and my internet connection installed and I am able to still access the internet. Therefore, I know that the PowerEdge server is still functioning....BUT it won't recognize the I/O devices.
What can I do to force it to recognize the monitor, keyboard, and mouse...as it previously did?
Any help or insight would be GREATLY appeciated...and thank you!
Just go into the bios and insert the correct parameters. you shut it off before it could save the settings. Or hit fi on boot and it should take you into the bios and you cand sort it out in there. If you want an easy way, just do a system restore. Start,Programs, accesorys, system tools, system restore, just go back a day or two before you had that issue, and you should be good to go, good luck
