    Is there a pattern to the beep code? If it is simply a steady beep, it is more than likely a video chipset error. Install a known good video card (probably have to be a PCI video card) and see if you get video of any kind.

Toshiba will not boot


It needs those things to start up. If you reinstalled them in the machine and it won't start up you need to check some things:
Does the screen flicker when you power it on or does it stay completely black? If it stays completely black, then the connection from the screen to the computer itself is lost. Normally it is caused by a broken cable.

If the screen flickers and then goes black, then check the following:
Does it beep at you? If it does, then the amount of beeps is important. It will state in the users manual what that numbers mean.
If it doesn't beep, then my best guess would be that there is something wrong with the power distribution in the machine.

Dell power edge 2850 make 4 seconds beeps alarm without stopping and without show any error Msg on the screen.


I don't understand the beep code you describe, but the 2850 has many beep codes to help understand what is going on.

First ... Identify the beep. Does the beep start as soon as you power it on, or after several seconds? What is the pattern of the beep - is it a repeating set of beeps - 3 sets of beeps between 1 and 4 beeps ... like 1 beep-3 beeps-2 beeps, or 3 beeps, 3 beeps, 1 beep? Or is it a steady repeating beep - about once per second?

Second ... is the LCD panel on the server blue or orange? If orange, what is the error code(s) it is scrolling?

If it is a steady, once-per-second beep, it is probably your RAID controller. Does the system boot to Windows/OS ok? If so, use (or install) OpenManage Server Administrator (Managed Node from Dell's Support Site) to check the Hardware Logs and check the RAID array (under Storage/Virtual Disks). If it is not booting to the OS, then go into CTRL-M to see what the status of your array is.

I had this problem. It was a continuous series of slow beeps. It was a memory problem. I swapped the memory and the system booted.
