    are the fans running up to speed and working? My pe4300 had the same problem, even though the fan was working, i replaced a couple of them and not had the beep since.

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.

Why red light blinking on dell poweredge 840


Hello,

Check your power supply or the power supply source (outlet or UPS unit) as well as the power cord. Your system power source is not at the correct amp, voltage and may need replacing.

Good Luck.

Dell Poweredge 840 shutdown automatically


Hello
This error mostly comes with the failure of processor fan, overheating of processor shuts down the system due to processor's protection. You need to check the fans and replacement is recommended.
Hope this helps

My Dell PowerEdge 600SC server seems to run OK but lately has a beep that is constant....no code just beep....beep....beep...I though it was the UPS system at first


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.

My poweredge emits a contiual beep and don't turn on . thanks


If your PowerEdge will not boot but only beeps on start, there are a number of things that could be the issue. One thing that can be done is to document the beep pattern and use that to look up the issue or post the beep pattern here.

Beeping PowerEdge 1300


When a Dell server beeps in every 3-5 second that mean it comes from Raid controller.
Dell calls PERC Controller.
It usually reason of a disk failure.

Install open manage server administrator on your server.
See which disks are failed ?

Try to run Power edge diagnostics on the failed disk.
If it passes the test reseat the disk.
if it fails disk has to be replaced with a new one.
If passes the quick test, reseat the disk and update disk + perc firmware and driver to the latest level. that will solve the problem!!

99% beeping comes from perc controller because of a failed HDD

cheers

Server is giving beep with red light on.


Hi Mirwais,
The beeping problem could be an indication of a few issues. One of which could be that the hard drive is overheating and when you remove it for those ten or twenty minutes, the drive cools and the problem disappears until the next time it heats up. You should open the machine and do a cleaning with a vaccuum. Heavy dust accumulation within the box can be a cause of poor air circulation. Also be sure to vac out the power supply fan and check that the fan is actual working to cool the system.
Also the beeping sound could be a sign that the processor is overheating, so be sure that area around the processor is cleared of dust and the processor is getting proper circulation. Have you experienced any system freezes. It YES then I would definitely look closely at the processor.
