I Have a Dell Poweredge 1800 server and the Green Light on the front face has recently changed to a Red Flashing Light. Everthing appears to be running ok but is the red light telling me that there is a problem?

you might want to check the power supply unit first, as it is very common for them to burn out and not supply the correct power to start up the server..
the 2nd thing i would do, is do a visual inspection of the motherboard , looking for any traces of burns, if any are found, replace the server.
should be able to see the reasons in the front panel, remove the
front cover and you will see a small display with some information
passing slowly. Sometimes is just the redundant power-supply that is
Hi, check if the drive is showing in the bios of the server, shut down the server, take out the power cable, press and hold the power button so as to realease flea power, open the server, and reseat the data cable at both ends and if there is another power cable available in the server swap it with the existing cable plugged into the scsi drive.
and now try to start your server. Further Queries are welcome
I need you to explain your problem a little more clearly.
I think you are saying that when you press the ON/OFF you get a display? What is the display that you get? How old is this machine? What other events have taken place leading up to this problem. Do you get and error messages on the monitor? DO you get any sort of sound emitting from the server when you press the ON/OFF butoon?
