Re: Dell PowerEdge 1800

Hi satti73,
I need you to explain your problem a little more clearly.
I think you are saying that when you press the ON/OFF you get a display? What is the display that you get? How old is this machine? What other events have taken place leading up to this problem. Do you get and error messages on the monitor? DO you get any sort of sound emitting from the server when you press the ON/OFF butoon?

Dell 1800 poweredge when I press the button does not start, I can see green light on one of the display. what cause not to boot up?

you might want to check the power supply unit first, as it is very common for them to burn out and not supply the correct power to start up the server..
the 2nd thing i would do, is do a visual inspection of the motherboard , looking for any traces of burns, if any are found, replace the server.

Power edge loght is red and blinking

You should be able to see the reasons in the front panel, remove the front cover and you will see a small display with some information passing slowly. Sometimes is just the redundant power-supply that is disconnected.

Turn the computer on, steady red light and beeping.

Have check for the pins connections who makes it to be master or slave? Have check how you plugged yours cables at HDD? Know that , the cables are plugged as following:
After to put in the power cable, the data cable must be put in in the way that the Red line must be in the direction of power cable. Check all this , if your HDD was good before , i believe that it will work.
Thanks , good luck!!
