    i have had power supply chaged twice, thu dell service contract. however, once again. power supply needs to be replaced. Dell cannot help me as they no longer help customers with equipment over 5 yrs old. but, they have an onsite service that can come and replace part for $500.00. is there any way to get part myself? i have seen onsite replace it twice before ,and am confident i can install myself. thanks barb

Just resolved the identical problem. The non redundant PSU was failing after random periods of time. You cannot get a PSU for love nor money so I modded a standard P4 350w PSU, by cutting off the raid controller cable from the faulty PSU and grafted it onto the new P4 unit. The machine is up and running

Dell PowerEdge 1500SC that started to reboot itself randomly but now switches off within a minute of startup

assume power supply is failing or overheating, suggest replace power supply for new one or one with higher power rating to cope with power demand.

I hope this was useful.

Poweredge 1500sc, i hear a continues beeping noise. i looked in the back of the server and the fans are spinning? what could it be? I've only used 50% of the memory?

Is it overheating?
Is the video-card "loose" ?
Remove the RAM, and reseat it, to make sure that it is properly connected.
Is one of the fans *NOT* spinning?

Machine will not start

Did you swap out the RAM and/or CPU. Is this a heat related shutdown?

Dell PowerEdge 1600SC Server problem

I had the same thing happen in a 600SC about a month ago.
Replaced the memory, and it fixed the problem.

It did the same hang. Would run fine for any where from a hour to 3 hours, and then quit (hang). And I got the same message. Talk to them and it was a short in the memory module, so some times it would read the entire stick, other times it would "not see it", and that would lock the OS.

The server shutdown approxmatly every day

if the log says that the shutdown was unexpected, then I'd suspect a power outage at that time. If you're using a managed PDU, check to see if that outlet (or the whole pdu) is set to power cycle. If you have more then one power supply, I'd recommend plugging them into different pdu circuits. If you're pluged in to a UPS, suspect that the UPS is cycling and that there's no UPS management service running. If you're plugged into (yikes) the wall, suspect building power.
