What can I suggest?
Maybe there is a problem with the processor working too hard as there are too many files to get through?
Maybe a virus is in there making the hard ware work too hard?
Have you noticed the hard drive light working more than normal? if so this could be a reason as the processor will have to work harder, causing more heat, when it is busy trying to cope with an extra problem.

Dell Poweredge SC430 Shows error Code 3.


Haven't seen anybody use the term Microprocessor, for a long time.

How about CPU instead? Shorter, easier to type, carries a certain 'savior faire' to it; and will help teach people not to use it to mean PC. Personal Computer.

(Central Processing Unit. Microprocessor is another term used, or simply Processor for short )

I'm going to assume you are following Anti-Static Procedures.
If not the CPU's you have touched, are now key chain fobs.
(Drill a hole through them for the chain, lol!)

Have to go through the basics. It isn't an insult to your intelligence, I just need to go through a diagnostic flowchart in my mind.

CPU installed the correct way? Aligned correctly?
With the LGA 775 processor socket, the CPU can be turned, and installed wrong,

That little alignment 't1t' can get crushed.

What CPU did you install?
Do you know if it is supported?
The motherboard chipset is an Intel E7230,

A) Dual-Core CPU's

B)Front Side Bus support of either 800MegaHertz, or 1066MHz
(800MHz / 1066MHz FSB)

C) Hyperthreading Technology (HT)

However, depending on the CPU, you may need to perform a BIOS update.

With the old CPU going out, and now the new CPU doesn't work, I would suggest going back to the start of the diagnosis, and look into the Power Supply.

The Power Supply is the FIRST thing to look at, when diagnosing a desktop computer. Server notwithstanding.

A Power Supply with a weak voltage power rail, will emulate all sorts of software problems, and hardware problems.

Have a multimeter to use to test the 3 main voltage power rails?
(3.3 Volts DC, 5 Volts DC, and 12 Volts DC)

Have a KNOWN to be good, Compatible power supply, you can borrow for a temporary test unit?

No power on my PowerEdge 1800 Server

dells power supplies must come from dell. I would call dell and give then the service tag number of your server and they will be able to tell you about how much a power supply is.

Dell PowerEdge 2300 - Monitor, keyboard and mouse will not respond

It sounds like the power supply is failing.

Failing power supplies will sometimes deliver just enough power to make the fans spin but not enough for the motherboard and drives to start.

I hope this helps.

NO Audio out put

dell2_bing.gifpoweredge servers are not needed for sound. DELL support will notsupport any sound cards or care anything about your audio issues. Youwill not find audio drivers because again, a server's purpose has nothing to do with audio.

DELL Poweredge 2600 Bios FREEZES After Cpu check and before SCSI Drives check HELP!!!!

The BIOS check can freeze for many reasons.

Can you tell me if this is an existing system that was working fine and then had this problem, or is this a new (or new to you) system?

Can you give more information on what is actually showing on the screen?
