Question about Gateway 960 Series (gtwy960) Server

1 Answer

Constant beeping My Gateway 960 Server just started beeping. It continues to function, but the beeping is annoying, and indicates a problem, but what? When I shut the machine down, the beeping stops. When I start it again, the bootup process gets about halfway and starts beeping again, and finishes the bootup and goes into Windows 2000 Server and seems to work fine. What does the beeping mean? Please help!

I would first check that all the fans are turning when you first power it up. It may have fan speed sensors on them, and one or more fans aren't coming up to speed. I would check the CPU fan(s), as they are usually smaller, and tend to go bad before the other larger ones.

Server beeps continuously can not read monitor ,keyboard


you should start by re-seating the RAM first as this is a common problem. if that does not work re-seat the processor. If all that fails remove all add on cards and memory only leaving the processor and see if the beep codes change. Replace the components one-by-one to find the problem piece of hardware. HERE is a guide from Dell to tell you what the beep codes mean and also some troubleshooting tips.

Hi,

First make sure you have the right modules (DDR 1 or 2 and the speed 400mhz or something similar).
Then when you insert the new modules, does the computer beep?
Of not then you ok, if it gives you al log beep there is a memory error.
And if you have a integrated GPU it takes some memory for its own use.
Or maybe the computer cannot handle 2GB.

Hope this helps!

When I turn on my Gateway M-series I get a long loud series of beeps. once the windows loading screen comes up they stop how do i get the beeps to stop


Beeps usually indicate a problem with your hardware memory chips or keyboards or other items that are not functioning properly. I suggest if it is still under warranty send it back if not take it to a good shop for repair. Or try reinstalling the original software I would do this first. Most likely it is a memory module the way to test this is remove one of the chips and try starting the computer. If this continues place the one you removed back in the computer then pull the other one if it boots you have found your memory module that is bad if this is the issue, make sure that you have everything plugged in.

System Fault indicator light on in a Gateway 975 Rackmount Server


If it is on steady and green, the server is operating normally.
If it is on steady and orange, the server is "in a critical or unrecoverable condition"

This is according ro the manual located at http://support.gateway.com/s/Manuals/Servers/8510289.pdf

If it is orange, for further diagnostics, you should see POST error codes, or hear relevant audible beep-code patterns, which can be interpreted by checking the tables in the PDF Server manual linked above. (Pages 125 and 128 respectively.)

If it's green, of course, you dont have a problem.
