Upgrade hard drives on 670


There is a 2TB limit with MBR (Master Boot Record), but even a larger drive can be partitioned. So a single 4TB (biggest on the market) drive will look like several drives.
External drives that are bigger than 4TB are really several physical drives combined by an array.

RAID 1 requires optional SCSI drives, cables, and even software?

Add on SATA 3 cards to PCI are not a good idea if you are looking for speed. They just bottlenecks the throughput.

The issue seems to be that your PC can not handle the supported memory. After review of your system specs on dell's website, I see that you're computer would require DDR2 Memory. This seems to be what is causing the beeping. Please check to ensure you are using the correct memory stick. I hope this has helped

From what I can tell the Dell Precision Workstation 670 does support over 4GB of RAM. However when you have over 4GB of RAM installed in the system you have to have the Memory Cooling Shroud connected to keep the memory cool. Also this is only shipped out when the system is ordered with over 4GB of RAM originally. If you do not have this part you can order it from Dell buy calling 877-671-3355.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

With my Dell precision 670 the USB ports do not initailze


You can try updating the bios firmware but more than likely it's a hardware problem since you've experienced it with two separate operating systems.

If you've got one usb port that works really well you can get a powered usb hub and that will "solve" some of your problems.

Dell 670 BIOS not installed


If you are installing a new hard drive, it is possible that you have not connected the cables correctly. Check if these are seated firmly in the corresponding pins.

Have you tried a differnt video card?  Also disconnect everything including the hard drive to see if the system will POST.  If it does, them start connecting 1 item at a time.
