SOURCE: Server is giving beep with red light on.

Hi Mirwais,
The beeping problem could be an indication of a few issues. One of which could be that the hard drive is overheating and when you remove it for those ten or twenty minutes, the drive cools and the problem disappears until the next time it heats up. You should open the machine and do a cleaning with a vaccuum. Heavy dust accumulation within the box can be a cause of poor air circulation. Also be sure to vac out the power supply fan and check that the fan is actual working to cool the system.
Also the beeping sound could be a sign that the processor is overheating, so be sure that area around the processor is cleared of dust and the processor is getting proper circulation. Have you experienced any system freezes. It YES then I would definitely look closely at the processor.

SOURCE: Constant beeping

I would first check that all the fans are turning when you first power it up. It may have fan speed sensors on them, and one or more fans aren't coming up to speed. I would check the CPU fan(s), as they are usually smaller, and tend to go bad before the other larger ones.

SOURCE: Dell PowerEdge 1400 Server Problem

Failed memory.

Posted on Nov 14, 2008

SOURCE: 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!

I am having a problem with my dell poweredge 1800, it beeping continuous


Assuming this is still an issue...old as it is...

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.

Server beeps continuously can not read monitor ,keyboard


you should start by re-seating the RAM first as this is a common problem. if that does not work re-seat the processor. If all that fails remove all add on cards and memory only leaving the processor and see if the beep codes change. Replace the components one-by-one to find the problem piece of hardware. HERE is a guide from Dell to tell you what the beep codes mean and also some troubleshooting tips.

PowerEdge 2850 server beeps as soon as it is turned on - 3-2-1 beeps format. What has failed?


the beeps are post during post the very first work is done by the ram,all the memory in the ram is first transferred to the hard disk,and remains active untill turned off.

make sure that your RAM is securely seated

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty

a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and to have and end to function
obvisously the beeps are windows searching for some hardware it could be RAM cd/dvd hard drive or motherboard all of these must have secure connections for the computer to work
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure make sure the connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
hope this helps

Dell PowerEdge 1600sc server won't boot.


> black screen & flashing cursor ...

Damaged boot-record on the disk-drive???

Was it configured to try to boot from 'A:' ?
Disconnect the hard-drive & CD/DVD drives.
Put a diskette into the drive, and see if it tries to find a boot-record on the diskette.
If it tries, then it has P.O.S.T.'d correctly.

> no beep codes

When it worked, did it beep _once_ when P.O.S.T. completed?

Taking out the RAM _should_ cause some beep codes, i.e., "no RAM".

> anyone?

Replace the monitor?

Replace a dead video-card?
Or, add-in a video-card, and connect a monitor to it, leaving the original monitor connected to the original video-card. One of the two displays should show the P.O.S.T.

Server making continual beeping noise......


Sounds like one of two errors - either one of the power supplies has died (not sure if the 1800 has redundant power supplies or not) or a drive in the RAID array has failed. Most likely it's the drive. Run the Dell Server Administrator tool to check the health status of the array, sounds like you need to replace a drive. Most RAID systems fail if you lose more than one drive, so I'd replace that drive ASAP.

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

Beeping Upon Bootup


dependent on how many beeps you hear is dependent on what might be the problem. A fuller explanation from pushing the power button to nothing happening would be more than helpful. Beeps in a Poweredge can mean motherboard, memory or as you said power supply problems.
