• Setting up the operating system
7
Chapter 2: Setting Up Your Server
Setting up the hardware
To make sure that your working environment is safe:
■
Use a clean, dry, flat, stable surface for your server. Allow at least 6 inches at the
back of the server for cabling and air circulation.
■
Use the instructions on your server’s setup poster to set up your hardware.
■
Use an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) with surge protection for protection
from power outages and power spikes.
Warning
8
Your server comes with a 3-wire AC power cords fitted with the correct
plug style for your region. If these plugs do not match the connector
on your UPS or wall outlet, do not attempt to modify the plugs in any
way. Use a UPS or wall outlet that is appropriate for the supplied
AC power cords.
■
Avoid subjecting your server to extreme temperature changes. Do not expose your
server to direct sunlight, heating ducts, or other heat-generating objects. Damage
caused by extreme temperatures is not covered by your warranty. As a general rule,
your server is safest at temperatures that are comfortable for you.
■
Keep your server and magnetic media away from equipment that generates
magnetic fields, such as unshielded stereo speakers. Strong magnetic fields can erase
data on both diskettes and hard drives. Even a telephone placed too close to the
server may cause interference.
www.gateway.com
Protecting from power source problems
Protecting from power source problems
Line conditioners, and uninterruptible power supplies can help protect your server against
power source problems.
Line conditioners
A line conditioner protects your server from the small fluctuations in voltage from an
electrical supply. Most servers can handle this variation, called line noise, without problems.
However, some electrical sources include more line noise than normal. Line noise can also
be a problem if your server is located near, or shares a circuit with, a device that causes
electromagnetic interference, such as a television or a motor.
Some uninterruptible power supplies include simple line-conditioning capabilities.
Uninterruptible power supplies
Use an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) to protect your server from data loss during a
total power failure. A UPS uses a battery to keep your server running temporarily during
a power failure and lets you save your work and shut down your server. You cannot run
your server for an extended period of time while using only the UPS. Be sure to use a UPS
with surge protection. To buy a UPS, contact Gateway Customer Care, Gateway Sales, or
visit accessories.gateway.com. For more information on contacting Customer Care, see
“Telephone support” on page 86.

Chapter 2: Setting Up Your Server
Starting your server
Before you start your server for the first time:
■
Make sure that the server and monitor are plugged into a power outlet or UPS and
that the UPS (if you are using one) is turned on.
■
Make sure that all cables are connected securely to the correct ports and jacks on
the back of the server.
When you connect peripheral devices to the server, make sure that
your server and devices are turned off and the power cords are
unplugged.
Caution
To start the server:
1
Press the power button.

Starting your server
If nothing happens when you press the power button:
2
■
Make sure that the UPS, if you are using one, is connected securely to an
electrical outlet, turned on, and working correctly.
■
Make sure that the monitor is connected to the server, plugged into the power
outlet or UPS, and turned on. You may also need to adjust the monitor’s
brightness and contrast controls.
The first time you turn on the server, any pre-installed operating system may begin
asking you for configuration settings. See your operating system’s documentation for
instructions on configuring advanced settings for your specific network.
Selecting the boot device
To select which device your server boots from:
1
2
During server startup, press F10. The Boot menu opens.
Select the device you want to boot from. Common choices include:
■
Removable Dev. (Removable device)
■
ATAPI CDROM (CD or DVD drive)
■
Hard Drive
■
IBA GE NIC (Network boot)
Understanding the power-on self-test
When you turn on your server, the power-on self-test (POST) routine checks the server
memory and components. If POST finds any problems, the server displays error messages.
Write down any error messages that you see, then see “Error messages” on page 73 and
“Beep codes” on page 76 for troubleshooting information.

Chapter 2: Setting Up Your Server
Turning off your server
Every time you turn off your server, first shut down the operating system. You may lose
data if you do not follow the correct procedure.
To turn off the server:
1
See the operating system’s documentation or online help for instructions on shutting
down the operating system. Whenever possible, you should use the operating system’s
shut down procedure instead of pressing the power button.
2
If your server did not turn off automatically, press the power button. If nothing
happens when you press the power button, press and hold it for five seconds and
the server will turn off.
Warning
Caution
12
The power button on the server does not turn off server AC power.
To remove AC power from the server, you must unplug both
AC power cords from the wall outlet or power source. The power
cords are considered the disconnect device to the main (AC) power.
If you routinely turn off your server (daily or weekly), do not unplug
the server or use the On/Off switch on the UPS. Regularly cutting
off all power to your server may cause the CMOS battery to fail
prematurely.

Setting up the operating system
Setting up the operating system
If you ordered your server with the operating system already installed by Gateway, in most
cases it is completely installed and the basic settings are already configured. The Windows
Small Business Server operating system may require additional installation, depending on
the version you ordered. See your operating system’s documentation for instructions on
completing the installation or configuring advanced settings for your specific network.
If you are installing an operating system because it was not already installed by Gateway,
see the appropriate installation guide for instructions.
Initial hardware settings
Your server comes from the manufacturer with the correct initial hardware settings to
operate your server as configured. However, at some point you might want to change
settings to reflect a tasking change, a change in security requirements, or the addition of
new resources to your server.
General hardware settings, as well as the onboard RAID solution, can be changed by using
the BIOS Setup utility. Add-in RAID solutions must be configured using the specific RAID
console which accompanied that solution.
For information on the BIOS Setup utility, see “Using the BIOS Setup Utility” on page 65.
For information on BIOS settings, see “BIOS Settings” on page 95. For information on the
RAID BIOS Console utility, see “Configuring your onboard RAID solution” on page 42. For
information on a specific RAID console for an add-in RAID solution, see the documentation
on that hardware which accompanied your RAID solution.

To extend the life of your server:
■
Be careful not to bump or drop your server.
■
When transporting your server, we recommend that you put it in the original
packaging materials.
■
Keep your server and magnetic media away from equipment that generates
magnetic fields.
■
Avoid subjecting your server to extreme temperatures. Do not expose your server
to heating ducts or other heat-generating objects. Damage caused by extreme
temperatures is not covered by your warranty. As a general rule, your server is safest
at temperatures that are comfortable for you.
■
Keep all liquids away from your server. When spilled onto server components,
almost any liquid can result in expensive repairs that are not covered under your
warranty.
■
Avoid dusty or dirty work environments. Dust and dirt can clog the internal
mechanisms and can cause the server to overheat.
Cleaning your server
Keeping your server clean and the vents free from dust helps keep your server performing
at its best. Your server cleaning kit could include:
16
■
A soft, lint-free cloth
■
Glass cleaner
■
An aerosol can of air with a narrow, straw-like extension
■
Isopropyl alcohol
■
Cotton swabs
■
A tape drive cleaning cartridge (if a tape drive is installed)
■
A CD or DVD drive cleaning kit

Caring for your server
Cleaning tips
Always turn off your server and other peripheral devices before cleaning any
components.
■
Warning
When you shut down your server, the power turns off, but some
electrical current still flows through your server. To avoid possible
injury from electrical shock, unplug the power cords and all other
cables connected to the server.
■
Use a damp, lint-free cloth to clean your server and other parts of your server
system. Do not use abrasive or solvent cleaners because they can damage the finish
on components.
■
Keep the cooling vents free of dust. With your server turned off and unplugged,
brush the dust away from the vents with a damp cloth, but be careful not to drip
any water into the vents.
Cleaning the keyboard
You should clean the keyboard occasionally by using an aerosol can of air with a narrow,
straw-like extension to remove dust and lint trapped under the keys.
If you spill liquid on the keyboard, turn off your server and turn the keyboard upside down
to let the liquid drain. Let the keyboard dry completely before trying to use it again. If
the keyboard does not work after it dries, you may need to replace it. Keyboard damage
resulting from spilled liquids is not covered by your warranty.
Cleaning the screen
If your computer screen is a flat panel display, use only a damp, soft cloth to clean it.
Never spray water directly onto the screen.
Caution
The flat panel display screens are made of specially coated glass and
can be scratched or damaged by abrasive or ammonia-based glass
cleaners.
- OR If your computer screen is not a flat panel display, use a soft cloth dampened with glass
cleaner to clean the screen. Never spray cleaner directly onto the screen.
Cleaning the tape drive
If you use a tape drive to back up your files, regular maintenance will lengthen the life
of the drive. To maintain the drive’s reliability:
■
Clean the drive monthly with the cleaning cartridge included with the drive.
■
Remove the tape from the drive whenever the drive is not in use.

Installing memory
Installing memory
When you upgrade your server memory, make sure that you install the correct type of
memory in your server. Your server supports from 256 MB to 8 GB total memory. Supported
DIMM sizes include 256 MB, 512 MB, 1 GB, and 2 GB.
Caution
Memory modules must be identical in each bank. Use only
DDR2-533 MHz, ECC unbuffered, 240-pin DIMM memory modules
in 256 MB, 512 MB, 1 GB, or 2 GB sizes.
Memory modules must be installed in pairs, to completely fill each
bank, and the banks must be filled in order. If you have memory
installed incorrectly, your server will not start up.
The BIOS configures the memory controller to run in either single channel or dual channel
mode, depending on the following:
■
If one or more fully populated DIMM banks are detected, the memory controller
will run in dual channel mode.
■
If only a single DIMM is present, the memory controller will run in single channel
mode.
DIMM banks must be populated using the following guidelines:
■
DIMM banks must be populated in order, starting with Bank 0.
■
Dual rank DIMMs must be populated before single rank DIMMs.
■
When using Dual Rank (double row) DIMMs, a maximum of four loads per memory
channel is supported, and therefore a maximum of four dual rank DIMMs can be
populated on this system board.

Replacing a power supply module
If your server uses the optional hot-swappable, redundant power supplies and one of the
two power supplies fails, the other power supply module supports the server while you
replace the failed module. You do not need to turn off the server or disconnect peripheral
devices to replace a failed power supply module.
Warning
The power supply modules in this server contain no user-serviceable
parts. Only a qualified computer technician should service the power
supply modules.
Your server comes with 3-wire AC power cords fitted with the correct
plug style for your region. If this plug does not match the connector
on your surge protector, UPS, or wall outlet, do not attempt to modify
the plug in any way. Use a UPS or wall outlet that is appropriate for
the supplied AC power cords.

Beep codes
Whenever a recoverable error occurs during the power-on self-test (POST), the BIOS
displays an error message that describes the problem. The BIOS also sounds a beep code
(one long tone followed by two short tones) during POST if the video configuration fails
(a faulty video controller) or if an expansion card is not functioning correctly. One short
beep indicates the BIOS will boot the operating system. No error found.
A PCI expansion card (for example, a RAID controller) can also issue audible errors by itself,
usually consisting of one long tone followed by a series of short tones. For more
information on the beep codes issued, check the documentation for that device.
The following table shows POST error beep codes. Prior to system video initialization, BIOS
uses these codes to inform users of error conditions.

Chapter 6: Troubleshooting
Internet
See also Modem.
You cannot connect to the Internet
■
Make sure that your account with your Internet Service Provider (ISP) is set up
correctly. Contact your ISP technical support for help.
■
Make sure that you do not have a problem with your modem. For more
information, see “Modem (telephone dial-up)” on page 82.
Keyboard
Liquid has been spilled into the keyboard
■
If you spilled liquid into the keyboard, turn off your server and unplug the
keyboard. Clean the keyboard and turn it upside down to drain it. Let the keyboard
dry before using it again. If the keyboard does not work after it dries, you may
need to replace it. This type of damage is not covered by your server’s warranty.
Memory
Memory errors were detected during server start up
■
Open your server and make sure that the memory modules are installed correctly.
For more information, see “Installing memory” on page 45.
■
A memory module may be defective. If possible, try another memory module and
see if the error repeats.
Modem (telephone dial-up)
See also Internet.
Your modem does not dial or does not connect
82
■
Make sure that your server is connected to the telephone line and the telephone
line has a dial tone.
■
Make sure that the modem cable is less than 6 feet (1.8 meters) long.
www.gateway.com
Troubleshooting
■
Remove any line splitters or surge protectors from your telephone line, then check
for a dial tone by plugging a working telephone into the telephone jack.
■
If you have additional telephone services such as call waiting, call messaging, or
voice mail, make sure that all messages are cleared and call waiting is disabled
before using the modem. Contact your telephone service to get the correct code
to temporarily disable the service. Also make sure that the modem dialing
properties are set correctly.
To check the dialing properties in Windows 2000 Server:
1
2
Click Start, Settings, then click Control Panel. The Control Panel window opens.
3
Make sure that all settings are correct.
■
Make sure that you are not using a digital, rollover, or PBX line. These lines do
not work with your modem.
■
Check for line noise (scratchy, crackling, or popping sounds). Line noise is a
common problem that can cause the modem to connect at a slower rate, abort
downloads, or even disconnect. The faster the modem, the less line noise it can
tolerate and still work correctly.
Double-click the Modems icon, then click Dialing Properties. The Dialing Properties
dialog box opens.
Listen to the line using your telephone. Dial a single number (such as 1). When the
dial tone stops, listen for line noise. Wiggle the modem cable to see if that makes a
difference. Make sure that the connectors are free from corrosion and all screws in
the wall or telephone jack are secure.
You can also call your telephone service and have your telephone line checked for
noise or low line levels.
■
Try connecting with the modem at a lower connection speed. If reducing the
connection speed lets you connect, contact your telephone service. The telephone
line may be too noisy.
■
Try another telephone line (either a different telephone number in your business
or a telephone line at a different location). If you can connect on this line, call
your telephone service to fix the original line.
Your 56K modem does not connect at 56K
Current FCC regulations restrict actual data transfer rates over public telephone lines to
53K. Other factors, such as line noise, telephone service provider equipment, or ISP
limitations, may lower the speed even further.
www.gateway.com
83
Chapter 6: Troubleshooting
If your system has a v.90 modem, the speed at which you can upload (send) data is limited
to 33.6K. If your system has a v.92 modem, the speed at which you can upload data is
limited to 48K. Your ISP may not support 48K uploads.
The modem is not recognized by your server
■
If the modem shares the telephone line with another device, make sure that the
telephone line is not in use (for example, someone is on the telephone, or another
modem is in use).
■
Shut down and restart your server.
■
Reinstall the modem device driver. For more information, see Using Your System
Companion CD.
■
Open your server and reseat the modem. For more information, see “Installing PCI
expansion cards” on page 47.
Monitor
Your server is running but there is no picture
■
Adjust the brightness and contrast controls to the center position.
■
Make sure that the monitor is plugged in and turned on. If the monitor is turned
on, the power LED should be lit.
■
Check the port and cable for bent or damaged pins.
■
Connect your monitor to another computer, or connect a monitor that you know
works to your server.
The color is not uniform
Make sure that the monitor warms up for at least 30 minutes before making a final
judgment about color uniformity.
Make sure that:
84
■
The monitor is not positioned too close to another monitor, electric fan, or
fluorescent light.
■
You demagnetize the screen using the monitor’s degauss feature. For more
information on degauss, see the monitor’s documentation.
www.gateway.com
Troubleshooting
A horizontal line or wire is visible across the monitor screen
The monitor may use thin damper wires, located approximately 1/3 of the way from the
upper and lower screen edges, to stabilize the internal aperture grille. These wires are most
obvious when the monitor displays a white background. The aperture grille allows more
light to pass through the screen for brighter colors and greater luminescence. The damper
wire is a critical part of the overall monitor design and does not negatively affect the
monitor’s function.
Power
You press the power button, but the server does not turn on
■
If the power button LED is green, the server is turned on, but you may not be seeing
an image on the monitor. For monitor troubleshooting, see “Monitor” on page 84.
■
If your server is equipped with redundant power supply modules, check the LEDs
on the power supply modules.
■
If your server is plugged into a UPS, make sure that the UPS is connected securely
to an electrical outlet, turned on, and working correctly. One way to check this is
to plug the server directly into a wall outlet, bypassing the UPS.
■
Make sure that the electrical outlet is working by plugging a working device, such
as a lamp, into the outlet, then turning it on to test the outlet.
■
Open your server and make sure that the power supply cable and power button
cable are connected correctly to the system board.
When you turn on the server, it makes several short beeps
■
The short beeps indicate the server has encountered some type of error. See “Beep
codes” on page 76.
Processor
Your server does not recognize a new processor
■
Make sure that the processor is fully seated in its socket. The processor should be
recognized automatically if it is installed correctly.

Interrupts
The following table reflects a typical configuration, but you can change these interrupts.
Use this information to determine how to program each interrupt. The actual interrupt
map is defined using configuration registers in the ICH5-R (I/O controller). I/O Redirection
Registers in the I/O APIC are provided for each interrupt signal. The signals define hardware
interrupt signal characteristics for APIC messages sent to local APIC(s).
Important
If you disable an IDE controller to free the interrupt for that controller,
you must physically unplug the IDE cable from the system board.
Simply disabling the drive by configuring the BIOS does not make
the interrupt available.

into the extension cord does not exceed the extension cord ampere rating.
If your system is fitted with a TV Tuner, cable, or satellite receiver card, make sure that the antenna or cable
system is electrically grounded to provide some protection against voltage surges and buildup of static charges.
Care during use
■
■
■
■
Do not walk on the power cord or allow anything to rest on it.
Do not spill anything on the system. The best way to avoid spills is to avoid eating and drinking near your
system.
Some products have a replaceable CMOS battery on the system board. There is a danger of explosion if the
CMOS battery is replaced incorrectly. Replace the battery with the same or equivalent type recommended by
the manufacturer. Dispose of batteries according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
When the computer is turned off, a small amount of electrical current still flows through the computer. To
avoid electrical shock, always unplug all power cables and modem cables from the wall outlets before cleaning
the system.

Regulatory compliance statements
United States of America
Federal Communications Commission (FCC)
Unintentional emitter per FCC Part 15
FCC Part 15 Class A Statement
The server is designated as complying with Class A requirements if it bares the following text on the rating label:
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions:
(1) This device may not cause harmful interference.
(2) This device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.
This device has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class A digital device, pursuant to Part 15
of the FCC rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a
commercial installation. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not
installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference with radio
communications. Operation of this equipment in a residential area is likely to cause harmful interference, in
which case you will be required to correct the interference at your own expense.
Caution
Changes or modifications not expressly approved by Gateway could
void the FCC compliance and negate your authority to operate the
product.
Telecommunications per FCC part 68
(applicable to products fitted with USA modems)
Your modem complies with Part 68 of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) rules. On the computer
or modem card is a label that contains the FCC registration number and Ringer Equivalence Number (REN) for
this device. If requested, this information must be provided to the telephone company.
An FCC-compliant telephone line cord with a modular plug is required for use with this device. The modem is
designed to be connected to the telephone network or premises wiring using a compatible modular jack which is
Part 68-compliant. See installation instructions for details.
The Ringer Equivalence Number (REN) is used to determine the number of devices which may be connected to
the telephone line. Excessive RENs on a telephone line may result in the devices not ringing in response to an
incoming call. In most areas, the sum of RENs should not exceed five (5.0). To be certain of the number of
devices that may be connected to a line, as determined by the total RENs, contact the local telephone company.
If this device causes harm to the telephone network, the telephone company will notify you in advance that
temporary discontinuance of service may be required. The telephone company may request that you disconnect
the equipment until the problem is resolved.
The telephone company may make changes in its facilities, equipment, operations, or procedures that could
affect the operation of this equipment. If this happens, the telephone company will provide advance notice in
order for you to make necessary modifications to maintain uninterrupted service.
This equipment cannot be used on telephone company-provided coin service. Connection to party line service is
subject to state tariffs. Contact the state public utility commission or public service commission for information.
When programming or making test calls to emergency numbers:
■
■
106
Remain on the line and briefly explain to the dispatcher the reason for the call.
Perform such activities in the off-peak hours such as early morning or late evenings.

Appendix C:
Environmental information
The product you have purchased contains extracted natural resources that have been used in the manufacturing
process. This product may contain substances known to be hazardous to the environment or to human health.
To prevent releases of harmful substances into the environment and to maximize the use of our natural
resources, Gateway provides the following information on how you can responsibly recycle or reuse most of the
materials in your “end of life” product.
Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (commonly known as WEEE) should never be
disposed of in the municipal waste stream (residential garbage collection). The “Crossed-Out
Waste Bin” label affixed to this product is your reminder to dispose of your “end of life”
product properly.
Substances such as glass, plastics, and certain chemical compounds are highly recoverable,
recyclable, and reusable. You can do your part for the environment by following these simple
steps:
■
When your electrical or electronic equipment is no longer useful to you, “take it back” to your local or regional
waste collection administration for recycling.
■
In some cases, your “end of life” product may be “traded in” for credit towards the purchase of new Gateway
equipment. Call Gateway to see if this program is available in your area.
■
If you need further assistance in recycling, reusing, or trading in your “end of life” product, you may contact us
at the Customer Care number listed in your product’s user guide and we will be glad to help you with your
effort.
Finally, we suggest that you practice other environmentally friendly actions by understanding and using the
energy-saving features of this product (where applicable), recycling the inner and outer packaging (including
shipping containers) this product was delivered in, and by disposing of or recycling used batteries properly.
With your help, we can reduce the amount of natural resources needed to produce electrical and electronic
equipment, minimize the use of landfills for the disposal of “end of life” products, and generally improve our
quality of life by ensuring that potentially hazardous substances are not released into the environment and are
disposed of properly.
