There should at least be a message on the monitor indicating there is no
signal coming to the monitor. The first thought that comes to mind if
all is connected would be that the power supply has failed. And maybe the graphic card.
Call also the DELL support in your country they will be glad to help and they probably know the fault.
You will not be able to increase the hdd size of a raid array, it's size is set. If you need more storage, you can add additional drives ( either in raid or standalone ) and use the new drive(s) for storage, but the original array will remain unchanged. The other option is to back up all of your data, install new drives and create a new array.
If it's still working, there's no "requirement" to replace it, but Dell will probably not support it after a certain age.
Servers in general will fail on either power supplies or hard disks. Both of those are well past the average lifespan (what's called the "mean time between failure", or mtbf for the parts)
If you don't have an IT person or department, the simplest approach is to ask yourself this question: "What is the cost to my business if this computer dies tomorrow?"
Then figure out how much it would be to replace the computer (purchase + install and configure) If the replacement cost is less than the business-impact cost, then you should replace this 7-year-old box.
You must check if your bios detect your hard disk. check also if you r hard disk is sata and if it is on master jumper. see also it the HDD sata is enable in your bios. if all of this is ok, it must find the HDD. If not, you need to change your HDD.
I do not know why you need the automatic power on for your server. Server should be on all the time 24/7 .
If it is a PC , then you should know that even though shutdown , they are still on (you can see a light) .
This means you can use magic bullet to wake it up (wake up on lan).
Read up on magic bullet.
