    Thanks....that helped a memory issue but the system just kept on with a constant beep....I finally found a board in the PC that had a little speaker on it that was beeping....the card was RAID controller card and I had a bad hard drive.



    There just wasn't much warning but that was it. I think the memory and the disk issue was just from dirt.



    Thanks again

I am getting a loud beeping sound from the back of my Dell Poweredge 1600SC Server this morning. It seems to be operating fine, and there are no warnings on the computer. It IS very dusty inside, though....


Hello,

The sound may be an indicator alert. overheating, unlocked latch, etc. If the system is running ok and no noticable problems with your software, check your BIOS setting for log information related to alerts. If you find nothing of significate problems, you can disable alerts in the BIOS.

Hope this helps. Good Luck

It doesn't match any Dell codes, I even checked on the site. I'd go into device manager & see if there's anything with an exclamation point & fix that first. Check under "my computer" (right click,properties) & see if it's reporting the proper amount of RAM. Then you can check in bios to see how much is showing there & what slot(s) they're in. Hopefully, you will quickly find the issue. A bad RAM stick is the "beep" code that you're hearing on most dektops in general. So if you see in the bios that a RAM stick is not showing or is incorrect in size, remove the suspected stick & re-boot to see if that takes care of the "beep". Then just go buy another stick & be sure to get eec if it requires it. Regular memory doesn't work in most servers.

try another windows xp disk or burn another copy of the disk you have. it's also possible that there's a problem with the optical drive that you're using.

NO Audio out put


dell2_bing.gifpoweredge servers are not needed for sound. DELL support will notsupport any sound cards or care anything about your audio issues. Youwill not find audio drivers because again, a server's purpose has nothing to do with audio.

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!!

Beeping PowerEdge 1300


When a Dell server beeps in every 3-5 second that mean it comes from Raid controller.
Dell calls PERC Controller.
It usually reason of a disk failure.

Install open manage server administrator on your server.
See which disks are failed ?

Try to run Power edge diagnostics on the failed disk.
If it passes the test reseat the disk.
if it fails disk has to be replaced with a new one.
If passes the quick test, reseat the disk and update disk + perc firmware and driver to the latest level. that will solve the problem!!

99% beeping comes from perc controller because of a failed HDD

cheers

Constant beep on poweredge 840 appears to work alright


Hi

Besides standard beeps codes indicating Processor, CPU, Memory or Systemboard failures,
Dell PERC (PowerEdge Expandable Raid Controller) or SAS Controllers (Serial Attached SCSI) generate beeps to alert failures on the RAID sub-system.

From your description of the issues (when the beeps start), i suggest you check PERC or SAS setup. If you have Dell OpenManage Server Administrator installed, you can log-in and check for more information. Additionally, on the next reboot check the PERC/SAS/CERC boot up for any messages. You may also access the PERC (Ctrl+M), SAS (Ctrl+R) CERC (Ctrl+A) Management Menu for specific failures and attempt a rebuild (assuming you have a redundant RAID Volume).

You can also speak with Dell Support and raise a warranty call if the system has warranty.

Note: PowerEdge 840 would ship with PERC or SAS Controller. PowerEdge 700 will ship with PERC or CERC.
