    I am having the same problem. Replaced the motherboard, the power distribution board. the backplane, and the processor. Basically, I have a new server, but when I turn on the system, I get no drive activity, the CD will not open, and no video. I have tried resetting the CMOS, removed the battery, etc. There is a reset switch on the MB, but I dont' know what it does. Dell desktops have a hardware reset sequence (EFB), but this didn't work for this machine either. Any assistance would be appreciated.

It is possible the mainboard/motherboard is bad. However, you might want to check the internal fans on the 1650 to make sure they are not clogged or they are not obstructed. That would be the
first thing to check. After that if nothing work, then look to reset the CMOS (you should simply be able to short a jumper for them) or just simply take out the CMOS battery for a minute, then reconnect it.

Dell poweredge keeps going to utility screen when booted up


Well, that server went end of life about 6+ years ago so it's very possible that the server is done. Check your keyboard to make sure the F keys aren't stuck. Is there a disc in the CDROM? I don't think that model has the option to default to the utility screen but check out the BIOS if you can get in there.

Can windows xp operating system be installed on poweredge 1650 server


Yes it can however XP isn't a network operating system. Your server would be deprived of many features and options that make a server a server. I've heard of people putting XP on their servers, and if all you are doing is using the Poweredge 1650 as a file server then fine. But you don't need a server for that, could have used a desktop with XP as a file server.

Dell poweredge 1650 is beeping with blue flashing light


Flashing blue light is harmless - it simply means the Identify button has been pushed. There is a small button with a white, cursive 'i' on the front and back of the server - pressing this will make the light flash blue (or make it stop).

Go to Dell's support site and view the manual for the 1650 for an explanation of the beep code - identify the pattern of the beep.

If you are still able to get to Windows, use OpenManage Server Administrator to check the Hardware logs and RAID array.

Videoadapter in Dell 1650 server possible ?


8MB sounds like it is only recognizing onboard video.

Check the BIOS setup screen for video options. You may be able to select or enable PCI video.

If that does not work, Dell has lifetime phone support for their servers.

Write down the Express Service Code and Service Tag number that is on the server chassis and call Dell.
This is the last number I used for server support: (800) 945-3355
If it doesn't work you should be able to find a valid number at support.dell.com

I hope this helps.

Dell poweredge 1650 and norton ghost


okay, hate to answer my own question. Where I got confused was with the protocol.ini file that is used in Norton Ghost on a boot disk to load the network information, including the network protocol to be used (netbeui in this case) and what network card was to be used. Thus the last part of the protocol.ini file is where I needed to add the missing information. I needed to add the slot = required value to identify what one of two network cards in the dell PowerEdge 1650 was to be used to connect to the ghost server (in this case, the two cards were idenified by a number such as 0x0110 and 0x0120). The strange thing is that I also noticed that there is a third network port on the back of the server, but I am not sure if it is active or not, but nothing came of as of yet. But I am now happy to report that I can connect to the ghost server to image the machine I need to image.

No Video Signal on 1600sc


Disconnect from the network and all other accessories, and power up the system, this might be due to a faulty device attached to the system, eg: when you connect a usb faulty device the boot takes very long time, sometime it does not boot up.

PowerEdge 2600 does not boot up ?


you need to set the boot device order. Usually F12.
or you can go to bios with F2 or F10.

your cd-rom is wrong you need the Instalation and Server Management CD. I think it's possible to download this cd at their site.

good luck
