Dell PowerEdge 1600SC Server - Answered Questions & Fixed issues

Not sure what "the drive forks" actually means.

The floppy drive usually connects via a dedicated connector on the motherboard by a ribbon cable similar to the IDE cables but physically smaller and of course to the power supply. If the drive, the cable and the motherboard is ok it should appear in the bios list ready to be enabled and added to the boot order.

If the floppy drive doesn't appear in the list you should refer to the motherboard manual as there might be some jumpers to reset or perhaps it is only suitable for a usb floppy drive.

Take the number from the motherboard and do an internet search which should direct you to a place where you can download a manual which will contain all the information you need.

If you are using an image made from the IBM and it has a different processor and the board specs are different that can cause the drive not to boot it will act like it is then go into a perpetual boot. I would try to re image it again to insure that is ok on the drive also check the board If one is and AMD and the other an Intel then that would be part of the problem.

Hello here is the homepage.

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.

It hangs there probably becuase one or more of the drives are dead or are almost there. Check and see the lights on the drives are falshing funny or too long or are yellow. If you find one of them that are that way, pull it out and then reboot.

See if that helps.

According to you your server doesn't work properly and you get a beep sound and a still HD led, OK don't worry.In this situation I think you don't get display also. Anyways, first unscrew your system and open the panel of the cabinet. Then unlock the memory slot holder, take out the memory/Ram. make it clear by eraser. clean the metallic chip which is attach with slot. after that replace it again in same or other slot carefully by a little push. notice the notch of the Ram while replace it. It will solve your problem.
