Question about Dell PowerEdge 1600SC Server
My Dell 1600sc suddenly stopped sending a video signal. Upon reboot, everything appears to power up, yet I am still not receiving a video signal to troubleshoot problems. I added a PCI video card with no change. The 1600sc is network attached, yet I can not map a drive to the 1600sc from another computer, so I suspect it is not booting all the way up. I am not getting any system beep codes either. I verified that the monitor, keyboard and mouse were all okay using another computer. Upon inspection inside, all cables and connections are tight. The only thing that looks out of place is a blinking green led in the lower right side of the motherboard when powered up, and it stays blinking until it is powered down. The tiny number next to this led is U23.
Many thanks for any help.
I also have this problem with my Dell Poweredge 1650, integrated Ati Rage XL doesn't work. But when I add PCI graphic card, I get the video from it. Could integrated video be somehow disabled?

I have at this same problem. Its not the Bios, CPU, RAM or power supply. Its the mother board itself. I ordered a new mother board off of eBay.com and my server works fine!

It seems that you cannot upgrade the video card on certain Poweredge Servers. Not sure how that is possible, but Dell probably did it becuase now these servers could be used for power user workstations - and repurposing doesn't give dell any more money.

Hi I have similar problem with my poweredge 1600sc.
When I power it up the video image doesn't come on until I press the reset buttom once and everything start working as normal.
No Idea what the problem could be.

The beeping sound might be the the caused of wrong memory module, fan not plug in right, power supply wires not connected properly. i work in a company where i have to maintained 67 Dell 1600sc servers.
