Having problems with your Dell PowerEdge 4400 Server ?

I just got this machine and it hangs on the POST (with video) about 1/4 of the way. This is before the F2 or F10 message comes up. Two days ago, I took the CMOS battery out and put it back in and it did boot up. Last night, replaced the battery with a fresh one and now it does not boot up again. Removed and put back memory, cables, etc. and still will not boot. Any help is appreciated? How do I get the F2/F10 so I can enter setup? Every led is green.


Answers :

POST errors can be difficult to diagnose.
\015\012
\015\012If you have a speaker attached, listen for a sequence of short and long beeps, and pauses between. Record the sequence, this is a code that tells what the POST diagnostic is.
\015\012
\015\012Other start up BIOS keys are F2, F6, F8, F10 and F12; when I don't know which one it is, I just hit all of them.
\015\012Whether it's stated or not, you can usually hit these keys during the memory count, (The second Self Test after video)
\015\012
\015\012If the Memory Count dosn't finish and the BIOS open, then perhaps a dammaged memory chip is the cause. Try Rearranging the chips, or removing all but one of them and try the boot sequence.
\015\012
\015\012This may not be a solution but further info can be gained by trying these.
