It doesn't match any Dell codes, I even checked on the site. I'd go into device manager & see if there's anything with an exclamation point & fix that first. Check under "my computer" (right click,properties) & see if it's reporting the proper amount of RAM. Then you can check in bios to see how much is showing there & what slot(s) they're in. Hopefully, you will quickly find the issue. A bad RAM stick is the "beep" code that you're hearing on most dektops in general. So if you see in the bios that a RAM stick is not showing or is incorrect in size, remove the suspected stick & re-boot to see if that takes care of the "beep". Then just go buy another stick & be sure to get eec if it requires it. Regular memory doesn't work in most servers.

I am getting a loud beeping sound from the back of my Dell Poweredge 1600SC Server this morning. It seems to be operating fine, and there are no warnings on the computer. It IS very dusty inside, though....


Hello,

The sound may be an indicator alert. overheating, unlocked latch, etc. If the system is running ok and no noticable problems with your software, check your BIOS setting for log information related to alerts. If you find nothing of significate problems, you can disable alerts in the BIOS.

Hope this helps. Good Luck

How or where in the BIOS do I switch video source to PCI? Old Dell PowerEdge 600SC. Attempting to install new video board.


Most servers (including the 600SC) were not designed for use with add-in video cards, thus, there is no jumpers or BIOS setting to disable the onboard video.

What audio driver to i need for my dell poweredge 600sc server running windows server 2003? Is there a direct link? I search and have not found anything.


dell poweredge servers are not needed for sound. DELL support will not support any sound cards or care anything about your audio issues. You will not find audio drivers because again, a server's purpose has nothing to do with audio.

Constant beep on poweredge 840 appears to work alright


Hi

Besides standard beeps codes indicating Processor, CPU, Memory or Systemboard failures,
Dell PERC (PowerEdge Expandable Raid Controller) or SAS Controllers (Serial Attached SCSI) generate beeps to alert failures on the RAID sub-system.

From your description of the issues (when the beeps start), i suggest you check PERC or SAS setup. If you have Dell OpenManage Server Administrator installed, you can log-in and check for more information. Additionally, on the next reboot check the PERC/SAS/CERC boot up for any messages. You may also access the PERC (Ctrl+M), SAS (Ctrl+R) CERC (Ctrl+A) Management Menu for specific failures and attempt a rebuild (assuming you have a redundant RAID Volume).

You can also speak with Dell Support and raise a warranty call if the system has warranty.

Note: PowerEdge 840 would ship with PERC or SAS Controller. PowerEdge 700 will ship with PERC or CERC.
