The lock on the Powerledge is not too difficult to pick. A home made pick or buy a small lock picking tool set (less than $20). Without any training you can pick it in five minutes.

Unless you need real security you can open it with a flat piece of metal or a screwdriver. just force it to turn, should nt do it too much damage. If you need to keep physical security get a lock pick as suggesed by vangbongmott

Hi. I Inherited a DELL Poweredge 1600SC server. When I switch it on, it powers up but the screen remains blank [black without any beeps]?? I remove all the memory and switched it back on again = NO beeps....


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.

Opening the case of the Poweredge 5000SC


Hello,

You would need to unscrew the thumbscrew located on the right side of the rear panel, press top and bottom cover release tabs and pull the cover toward you. To replace, perform the steps in reverse.

Good Luck

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.

Opening the case to increase memory on Poweredge 1800


Hi

First, turn off the system including any attached peripherals, and disconnect the system from its electrical outlet.

1. Using the system key, unlock the front bezel.
2. Slide the latch right and pull the top edge of the bezel away from the front panel. Pivot the bezel downward until it is at an angle to the panel. Remove the bezel from the slots on the panel.
3. Loosen the three thumbscrews on the left side of the cover.
4. Grasp the cover at both ends and slide it towards the front of the system. And lift the cover away from the system.
5. Press the release tab on the front and back of Fan 2 assembly, then slide the fan assembly (black plastic shroud) up and out of the system
6. Disconnect the power cable for the Fan 2 assembly from the system board.

You can now access the six memory slots. Review System Memory / General Memory Module Installation Guidelines and carefully install the new memory modules.

I have provided some pictures below to help you.

1600sc second CPU


Hi

Yes, some systems (newer PowerEdge Servers, generally 6/7th Generation and above) have onboard VRMs.

1600sc is a 6th gen PowerEdge (with Simple Computing). I can checked and be absolute certain from within Dell. I'm on VAC until Saturday.

In the meantime, check the PRC model and revision and ensure that they match. Given that a single PRC POST/Boots, try upgrading (if not already) the system BIOS to latest revision.

If the PRC model/revision does match and you have the latest BIOS version, also if the VRMs are not needed, then from the Troubleshooting you have already done, we may conclude that the PRC 2 slot is faulty.

I will confirm the VRM query on Saturday.

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"
