Question about Computers & Internet
Poweredge R710 is currently 3 and a half years old. The server currently turns on and you can here the fan spinning but it never displays anything on the screen and the 3 drives it has light up once then turn off. The fan is operating at a very high rate and is extremely loud.
These rackmount servers are really loud and are meant to be run in a data closet.
Start my checking the ram - remove all but one stick (cant remember if these work in pairs). The idea is to check each stick to see if you have a dead stick.
These servers do a full system check often before you will see any video.
Are you hearing any beeps?

Testimonial: "That worked, it was bad RAM but now it won't boot past the POST. It will however boot from the optical drive using a server 2008 disc. I just get a blinking underscore. All HD lights are green."

Process of elimination? I first thought it may be a power problem but I could not understand the LED flashing (It still maybe a power problem) If you can leave on charge for 4-5 hours more if you can make sure the light is not flashing (That is turn the laptop off at the power switch) Try turning on after being on charge for as long as you can If that does not work it may be the bios with the wrong setting or the Hard Drive is faulty (The more I think about it I think it may the the last issue) Try the other steps first the turn on holding the DELETE button it (I think that is the button to access the bios ) This with work if the Hard is Good or bad)

dells power supplies must come from dell. I would call dell and give then the service tag number of your server and they will be able to tell you about how much a power supply is.
