STD Ed. 32 bit with Active Directory Problem - Today in the morning server was working fine. Suddenly very loud fan sound came continuously from system with no display. After 5 mins I turned off the system by pressing power on button for more than 5 sec. After 30 mins when I turned the system on, the same sound came through server continuously with no display. No indication is giving on front panel indicator of server. I removed RAM, Raiser card, memory and re-fixed it and again tried the same, but same result. Next day when I come and start the server, it starts for about 15 mins. After that same problem.

You might have a bad power supply. If you have a voltmeter, check the voltage of the standby power supply. This voltage is present even if the system is off, plugged in. It powers a small portion of the logic circuit. It should measure within a couple of tenths of exactly +5 volts. If it is low, or high, this will prevent turn-on. The purple wire of the 24 pin connector is what carries this to the motherboard. The color coding layout is found at If by chance this voltage is OK, then check the full on voltages also. Repair of the defective supply is probably by replacement of one or more small electrolytic capacitors in the appropriate circuit, especially if you are technically savvy. Capacitors are available through several suppliers; Digi-Key supplyies Panasonic FC series which are suitable for switching power supplies. Or, you may just replace the whole unit.

Take the ram back out of the computer that you just installed and see if you have the same problem. If you do, a board or plug must have came loose when you were inside the unit. If the problem clears up, the ram you are trying to use is bad or not compatible with your computer. All ram is not alike. Good Luck

Yes, it is time to replace it. Open the case and make sure it is a standard size before you buy another one. Just measure length, width & height. You can put a higher wattage supply in there, it just won't have to work as hard to power your computer.

Reconfugure raid 1

Not sure what the questions is, reconfiguring a mirrored raid is a destructive process so all info on the drives will be gone.
That said this is managed through the SCSI configuration which you can get into at boot usually by pressing one of the function keys when prompted at boot up.
