Hey there chandru 2020, the configuration problem which you are experiencing is related to the positioning of your ram in the appropriate slots. Servers work with matching pairs of ram, installed in either two, four or eight sticks of memory. The placement of less than a full set , in your case two minimum is also very specific. You should go to the Dell website to access configuration diagrams for your server model. Also check to ensure your ram is compatible, and try installing just one pair at a time. There is also a possibility that a blank may need to be inserted in empty dimms. I hope this helps. Good Luck!

Long continuous beep

It seems to be issue with RAM. Remove RAMs from RAM slot, clean up dust from RAM slot as well from RAM. Hook up RAM back to the RAM slot. If it would still not work, then replace the RAM.

Dell inspiron has no display and beeps four times and then pauses and beeps four more times

This is normally a memory error. Turn off the computer, and open the side of the case. Pull and re-seat all memory chips. Turn power on, if it still beeps. Turn off power, pull all the memory chips and re-seat one only. Turn on power if it beeps againg, pull the chip out and try the other one. Repeat for all chips. If you find any that do not cause the beep issue, you have found your bad memory chip. If not, try the same one at a time memory test in a different slot on the computer. If no beeps, then its a bad slot and dont use that memory slot.

If none of this works; as unlikely as it seems you could have all bad memory chips, or a bad mother board.

I am not sure if you have tried this, but take one stick of ram put it in the first slot. Try to boot if it beeps or not, power down and move to the next slot with the same chip (we are assuming this is a good ram chip). Repeat for every slot on the computer. If you have 1 or 2 slots that beep and the rest do not; bad slot on the mother board. If all slots beep, try a different chip (bad ram??). If no slots beep, repeat steps with each individual ram chip (you could have just one or two bad and causing all the issues).

Hope this helps

I was using my Dell OptiPlex GX260 PC Desktop when the suddenly, the windows fail to booth. After some while, it fail to display and keeps on making a beep sound. I testes my monitor and did the necessary...

i have a dell optiplex, at home and i think it gave me something of a problem related to this. the beeping sound you are hearing is related to the ram. in my case, i change it, or most times swapped the rams in their slot, it worked properly. you can try that first, swap the positions of the rams if you have the two slots occupied, change the position if you have only one ram. if the beeping continues, you should get a new ram. that should solve it. i'm saying this with the assumption that you know and can locate the ram, judging from your problem statement. just so I'm thorough, the ram is located on the mother board of your system, right in the middle of your system casing, the picture above. there are two buttons by the side, you have to press them in simultaneously to release the hook, then you pull the rear end up and towards the front. the motherboard should be visible to you now. the ram slots are the two longest slots in the middle of the motherboard. to remove the ram(the card(s) sitting on the slot.) press the two pins at the edge of the slot down to unclip the ram, then pull the ram out. when replacing the ram, watchout for the spaces in the base of the ram and make sure they are aligned properly to the bridges in the slot, press it down until the pins clip firmly to the ram.
hope this helps.

Windows server 2003 hd red light and beep

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.

Dell PE 1800 showed one SCSI 73G non critical state on a RAID 5 array of 3 disks. Shutdown the server, removed the SCSI disk and booted, server booted but continous beep sound, trying to rebuild the array...

Hi, try to renew the drivers and firmware from here:

Continuous beep related to ram ,try to remove ram and insert it, and if u still get beep change your ram.

Continious beeb sound is ram or cpu failure. Is the cpu fan spinning ??
If not the cpu is over heating.
Try to remove the ram modules and clean the contact points
with a piece of paper. Be very carefull when you do that !!!!!
And blow the dust out of your server, with a high pressure can.

Hope this was helpfull.

Error beep sound on server, conf:Intel server motherboard se7520bd2 2 gb ram scsi harddrive problum:long beep sound in LSI LOGIC CARD

I don't think SCSI card give beep error codes. If you listed this item, most likely this is the problem and your MB is telling u this. Your SCSI card is most likely damaged. Try to make sure it is inserted in the pci slot properly. If it a new one. We rarely use SCSI cards any longer as most Servers have plenty of HDD space and the Hot Swappable options make them easy to replace if they get damaged.

As a tech, I would first check the Mother Board (BIOS) Beep Error codes to determine exactly what the problem is. Those beeps tell u what hardware is malfunctioning.
