Question about Computer Servers

Something in my dell power edge 840 causing work station PCs to lock up!

Every day our small buisness server causes our work station CPs to lock up. we are a small day care facility, and are perplexed by this problem. We also have two time clocks running off the server; they also lock up every day. all the Hardware is new (3 months old) and was installed by a very competant techie. We've had the soft ware support guy in, and he can't find the problem. Any help is appreciated!

Hi i wanted to upgrade my poweredge 840 and use it for gaming, but it wont let me disable on board gpu. screens just go black, when invidia pluged in. can you help? or is there a MSI motherboard with


The problem that you are having is that the unit you are trying to upgrade is a SERVER, and not a desktop PC. There are notable differences in how servers are built. One is that they are not all that concerned with graphics and graphics performance, since they normally operate "in the dark" and are often accessed remotely. I did some research on the Dell site and saw a comment about your problem in one of their forums. I provide the link below. It should be informative.

Dell Power Edge 2900 - amber and Red A light on tape Drive


An Amber blinking power button indicates a low voltage problem. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard. May also be a defective card inserted into your motherboard. Try isolating the problem by removing all components until you just have motherboard and power supply and see if it turns on.

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.

yes you can do that but you need the drivers for the scsi interface. when you install windows xp (for example) i think you may have to press the f6 key on the installation to add these drivers.

Otherwise, installation wont take place.

We have a Power edge 840 that can't not detect any HDD in starting process, although power and data led are on. Can you help me to solve this problem? Thank you very much! Best regard!


Check both the POWER and the DATA cables between the motherboard and the HDD (Hard Disk Drive).
Remove them, and then re-insert them.

Try connecting the DATA cable to an alternate connector on the motherboard.

Remove the HDD, and connect it to another computer,
to see if the HDD can be detected on that computer.
If not, the HDD is the problem.

Fans turn on .. now what


It has a fan problem. You need to check if all fans are working properly.
Also install open manage server administrator on the server from Dell support website and check for hardware logs if you can see something wrong?
You will see the root cause of the problem from open manage server administrator
