System Features

PS 1 status LED glows green when the first power supply module in the
redundant power supply is installed and working correctly. It flashes green if
the power supply module fails or one of its power levels goes out of bounds.
If the power supply module is not installed, this LED is off.
PS 2 status LED glows green when the second power supply module in the
redundant power supply is installed and working correctly. It flashes green if
the power supply module fails or one of its power levels goes out of bounds.
If the power supply module is not installed, this LED is off.
System reset button is a recessed button that lets you reset the server if it
becomes nonresponsive.
Power button turns the server on and off. In an ACPI-enabled operating
system like Windows 2000, you can set the power button to enter sleep mode
rather than turning the system off.
Hot-plug drive lock secures the drive in place to prevent unauthorized or
accidental removal.
Outriggers provide support for the castors.
Castors let you roll the server around for ease of service.
5.25-inch drive bays (3) have room for additional 5.25-inch devices such as
tape drives or an additional CD drive.
CD drive plays data or audio CDs.
Diskette drive writes to and reads from 3.5-inch, 1.44 MB diskettes.
Power supply alarm speaker reset/System fault LED reset switch disables
the power supply alarm speaker, if it’s sounding, or resets the system fault
LED, if it’s flashing. Even though the switch resets the speaker, the power
supply alarm is not cleared and the appropriate LED continues to flash until
the failed power supply module is replaced.
Hot-plug drive activity LED indicates when the hot-plug drive immediately
below it is reading or writing data.
Hot-plug drive bay has room for up to six hot-plug drives connected to a
hot-plug backplane. Drives have to be set up in appropriate RAID
configuration to be hot-pluggable. Removing a drive when it is not properly
configured will result in lost data and may corrupt the operating system.
Front panel door covers the front panel controls to prevent unauthorized or
accidental access.

System Setup
Setting up the server
Use the instructions on the quick guide poster that came with the server to
assemble the server.
You can prepare a safer working environment before assembling the server
by following these guidelines:
■
Use a clean, flat, and stable surface for the server. Allow at least 12 inches
at the rear of the server for cabling and air circulation.
■
Obtain an adequately rated uninterruptible power supply (UPS). A UPS
protects against AC line spikes, power interruptions, and other power
fluctuations that may damage the server.
■
Protect the server from extreme temperature and humidity. Do not
expose it to direct sunlight, heater ducts, or other heat-generating objects.
■
Keep the server away from equipment that generates magnetic fields,
such as unshielded stereo speakers. Even a telephone placed too close to
the server may cause interference.
■
Plug the server into a wall outlet, power strip, or uninterruptible power
supply (UPS). Make sure the power cords are secured in the power supply
cable clamp on the back panel.
Important
Keep the boxes and packing material. If you need to send
the server to Gateway for repairs, you must use the original
packaging or your warranty may be voided.

Preventing static electricity discharge
Before opening the server case, follow these precautions to prevent damage
from static electricity. When opening your server case, always perform the
following procedure.
Caution
Static electricity can permanently damage electronic
components in your server. Prevent electrostatic damage
to your server by following static electricity precautions
every time you open your server case.
To prevent static electricity discharge:
1 Turn off the server power.
2 Touch a bare metal surface on the back of the server.
3 Unplug all power cords from AC outlets and disconnect the modem cord
(if installed).
Also follow these static electricity precautions:
22
■
Avoid static-causing surfaces such as plastic and packing foam in your
work area.
■
Remove the parts from their antistatic bags or containers only when you
are ready to use them. Do not lay parts on the outside of an antistatic
bag or container because only the inside provides antistatic protection.
■
Always hold cards by their edges and their metal mounting brackets.
Avoid touching components on the cards and the edge connectors that
connect to expansion slots. Never slide cards or other parts over any
surface.

Replacing or adding a processor
The system is compatible with the Pentium® III (FC-PGA Socket 370) 667 MHz
and faster processors with 133 MHz front-side bus (FSB). As many as two
processors may be installed in the system (they must have the same processor
and FSB speed). Processor and FSB speed are automatically detected by the
system, therefore there are no system board jumpers to set.
When adding or replacing a processor, order a processor upgrade kit from
Gateway. The kit includes the processor, a heatsink, and a disposable,
antistatic wriststrap. If you are installing a faster processor, your system may
require a BIOS update to be compatible with the new processor. Voltage
Regulator Modules (VRMs) for both processors are built into the system board.
Caution
A heatsink must be installed on each processor. Installing
a processor without a heatsink could result in damage to,
or failure of, the processor.
To replace the processor you must perform the following tasks:
■
Remove the heatsink
■
Remove the processor
■
Install the new processor
■
Replace the heatsink
To remove the heatsink:
1 Turn off the system and disconnect the power cord, modem cord (if
installed), and all external peripheral devices.
2 Observe all safety and static electricity precautions. (See “Preventing static
electricity discharge” on page 22.)

Power supplies
The Gateway 7400 Server uses a redundant power supply offering fault
tolerance and hot-swap capability. This section describes replacing the power
supply and also describes the procedure for hot-swapping a power supply
module.
Replacing a redundant power supply module
If one of the two power supply modules fails, the other module can support
the system while the failed module is replaced. An audible alarm indicates a
failed module, and the corresponding power supply status LED will begin to
flash. See “Front panel” on page 2 for the location and complete information
on the function of the power supply status LEDs. You do not have to turn
off the system to replace the failed module.
To replace a failed power supply module:
1 Determine which power supply module has failed. The module power
LED (on the back of the power supply modules) turns off when the
module fails.
2 Loosen the thumbscrew that secures the power supply module to the back
panel.

Replacing the power supply
The redundant power supply offers fault tolerance and hot-swap capabilities.
However, if the power distribution board at the base of the power supply or
some other part of the power supply fails, the entire power supply and its
housing must be replaced. This type of failure is indicated by both power
supply status LEDs flashing and an audible alarm, or the system will fail to
power up.
To replace the power supply:
1 Turn off the system and disconnect the power cord, modem cord (if
installed), and all external peripheral devices.
2 Observe all safety and static electricity precautions. (See “Preventing static
electricity discharge” on page 22.)
3 Remove the bezel. (See “Removing the bezel” on page 25.)
4 Remove the left side cover panel. (See “Removing the side cover panel”
on page 26.)

Setting the configuration switches
The system board has a configuration switch block related to the BIOS. You
can use specific switches to reset the CMOS settings to the BIOS defaults, or
to erase a misplaced or forgotten password. For the location of the
configuration switch block, see “System board” on page 8.
Caution
Moving any of these switches while the power is on can
damage your server. Always turn off the server and unplug
the power cord from the server before changing switch
settings.
The Clear Password switch
The Clear Password switch on the system board (SW3) lets you clear the
existing system passwords in case they are misplaced or forgotten, or if the
system administrator is unavailable. For normal operation, SW3 should be set
to the OFF position. To clear the passwords, SW3 should be set to the ON
position.
Once the switch is set to the ON position, passwords will be disabled, allowing
you to go directly to the operating system or to enter the BIOS Setup without
entering a password. To set up a new password, enter the BIOS Setup and enter
the password as you normally would, then turn off the system. Prior to turning
on the system again, open the system, return SW3 back to the OFF position,
then close the system. Make sure you turn off the server and unplug the power
cord before moving the switch.

Protecting against power source
problems
Surge suppressors, line conditioners, and uninterruptible power supplies can
help protect your system against power source problems.
Surge suppressors
During a power surge, the voltage level of electricity coming into your system
can increase far above normal levels and cause data loss or system damage.
Protect your server and peripherals by connecting them to a surge suppressor,
which will absorb voltage surges and prevent them from reaching your server.
When purchasing a surge suppressor:
■
Make sure the surge suppressor meets the appropriate product safety
certification for your location, such as Underwriters Laboratories (UL).
■
Check the maximum amount of voltage the suppressor allows to pass
through the line. The lower the voltage that the suppressor allows to pass
through, the better the protection for your system.
Protecting against power source problems
91
8508366.book Page 92 Tuesday, October 23, 2001 11:29 AM
■
Check the energy absorption (dissipation) rating. The higher the energy
absorption rating, the better the protection for your system.
■
Check for line-conditioner capabilities. A line conditioner smooths out
some of the normal line noise (small voltage fluctuations) of an electrical
supply.
Line conditioners
A line conditioner protects your system from the small fluctuations in voltage
from an electrical supply. Most systems 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 system is located
near, or shares a circuit with, a device that causes electromagnetic interference,
such as a television or a motor.
Some surge suppressors and uninterruptible power supplies include simple
line-conditioning capabilities.
Uninterruptible power supplies
Use a standby 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.

8508366.book Page 93 Tuesday, October 23, 2001 11:29 AM
Maintaining and managing your
hard drive
Regular maintenance can keep your hard drive operating efficiently and good
file management can keep your system free of unwanted files while making
important files secure and easier to find.
Hard drive maintenance utility
If you are using the Windows NT operating system, you can help maintain
the performance of your hard drive by regularly using Check Disk. If you are
using another operating system, refer to your operating system
documentation for available hard drive maintenance utilities.
Using Check Disk in Windows NT
Bad sectors are parts of a hard drive or diskette that will not hold data. A lost
allocation unit is a group of sectors that has lost its place in the table that
the operating system uses to locate files. Check Disk checks the hard drive
for bad sectors or lost allocation units and lets you fix them.
Use Check Disk from once a week to once a month, depending on how often
you use your system. Also use Check Disk if you have any hard drive problems.
To use Check Disk:
1 Double-click the My Computer icon. The My Computer window opens.
2 Right-click the drive you want to check.
3 Select Properties. The drive’s properties window opens.
4 Click the Tools tab.
5 At Error-checking, click Check Now. The Check Disk window opens.
6 Scan the entire hard drive by selecting Scan for and attempt recovery of bad
sectors.
7 Click Start. Check Disk checks the drive for errors.
8 Follow any on-screen instructions for completing the scan.

Hard drive management practices
By deleting unneeded files from your hard drive and managing the space that
is automatically allocated for saving certain files, you can help maintain the
performance of the hard drive. We suggest that you first check your hard drive
for available space, then back up important files prior to deleting unneeded
files, in case you delete important files by mistake.
Checking hard drive space
In Windows NT, you can see a chart of the available hard drive space. If you
are using another operating system, refer to your software documentation for
available hard drive management utilities.
To check hard drive space:
1 Double-click the My Computer icon on the desktop. The My Computer
window opens.
2 Right-click the drive you want to check.
3 Select Properties. The drive’s properties window opens. The General tab
shows you the available and used space on the drive.
Backing up files
Regularly backing up your files protects you from losing data and lets you
keep fewer files on your hard drive. Back up old files to a large capacity disk
drive or tape drive and delete the files from your hard drive. You can use the
software that came with your tape backup drive or your large capacity disk
drive to back up the files.
You can also back up files by running the Backup utility that came with your
operating system. In Windows NT, Backup copies files to a tape drive.
To run Backup in Windows NT:
1 Click Start, then select Programs, Administrative Tools, then Backup.
2 Follow the on-screen instructions.
Deleting unneeded files
By deleting unneeded files from the hard drive, you free up space on the hard
drive and help improve hard-drive performance. The following sections give
you some simple ways to delete unneeded files.
94
Managing Your System
8508366.book Page 95 Tuesday, October 23, 2001 11:29 AM
Deleting Windows temporary files
During normal operation, Windows constantly creates new temporary (.tmp)
files. You can safely delete all but the most recent .tmp files.
To delete .tmp files:
1 Open Windows Explorer, then select Tools, Find, then Files and Folders.
2 In the Named text box, type *.tmp
3 In the Look in drop down list, select your drive letter.
4 Click Find Now. The list of .tmp files appears.
5 Click Modified above the list. To see the Modified button, you may need
to maximize the Find window. The list is sorted by date.
6 Highlight all the files in the list except those with the current date.
7 Press SHIFT + DELETE. A dialog box opens asking if you want to delete the
files.
8 Click Yes. The files are deleted.
Deleting temporary Internet files
As you visit Web sites, your browser stores temporary Internet files on your
hard drive in a memory cache and a disk cache. Files in the memory cache are
removed when you turn off your server. Files are saved in the disk cache until
the space designated for the cache is full. See your browser’s help files for
instructions on emptying the disk cache.
You can save space on the hard drive by decreasing the size of the Internet
file disk cache. See your browser’s help files for instructions.

Emptying the Recycle Bin
When you delete a file from your hard drive in Windows NT, it is not
immediately removed from the hard drive. Instead, the file is moved into the
Recycle Bin. Because files are stored in the Recycle Bin and not deleted from
the hard drive immediately, you can retrieve a file that you accidentally delete
from the hard drive.
To delete all the files from the Recycle Bin, right-click the Recycle Bin icon
on the desktop, then click Empty Recycle Bin.
You can save space on the hard drive by decreasing the size of the Recycle Bin.
To decrease the size of the Recycle Bin:
1 Right-click the Recycle Bin, then select Properties.
2 At the Global tab, select either Configure drives independently or Use one
setting for all drives.
3 If you are configuring drives independently, click the tab for the drive
you want to configure.
4 Move the slider to set the size of the Recycle Bin. A good initial setting
is 5%.
5 Click OK.
Protecting your server from viruses
A virus is a program that attaches itself to a program or data file on a server,
then spreads from one server to another. Viruses can damage data, cause
servers to malfunction, and can display annoying or offensive messages. Some
viruses can go unnoticed for long periods of time because they are activated
by a certain date or time. Protect your server from viruses by:
96
■
Using an anti-virus program to check files and programs that are on
diskettes, attached to e-mail messages, or downloaded from the Internet.
After you run the anti-virus program you can back up your files to
diskettes, a separate hard drive, or a high-capacity storage drive.
■
Keeping your anti-virus program updated.
■
Obtaining all software from reputable sources and checking the software
for viruses before installing it.

System administration and control
Your server is equipped with server-management tools to enable
administration and control of Windows NT environments. These tools are
ManageX Event Manager, and the Gateway™ server management software.
ManageX Event Manager
ManageX lets the system administrator manage multiple systems on a
Windows NT or Windows 2000 network from a single window, and
implement commands and policies across the network with a single action.
With this tool you can automate system management tasks, which can be
triggered by specific events or at specified thresholds.
Additional information about the ManageX Event Manager can be found
under Documentation on the Server Companion CD which came with your
system.
Gateway® server management software
The Gateway® server management software provides continuous, in-band
monitoring, alerting, and management of your server. Information is provided
on such things as system temperature, system fans, voltage and power supply
conditions, system memory, and chassis intrusion.
Additional information about the Gateway® server management software can
be found under Documentation on the Server Companion CD which came with
your system.
System security
To prevent unauthorized entry or use of the system, a key lock on the bezel
door is provided. This lock not only prevents unauthorized access to the power
switch, but prevents removal of the side cover as well.
Security measures may also be set in the BIOS Setup utility which establish
passwords and automatic system lockouts. The system also includes server
management software that monitors the chassis intrusion switch.
98
Managing Your System
8508366.book Page 99 Tuesday, October 23, 2001 11:29 AM
Mechanical lock and monitoring
The system includes an intrusion switch. When the bezel is removed, the
switch transmits an alarm signal to the server, where server management
software processes the signal.
Software locks through the BIOS Setup utility
The Security tab in the BIOS Setup utility (see “About the BIOS Setup utility”
on page 85) provides several security features to prevent unauthorized access
to the system. Once the security measures are enabled, access to the system
is allowed only after you enter the correct password(s). For example, the
security features let you:
■
Set and enable supervisor and user passwords.
■
Set user BIOS setup access level (full, limited, view only, or no access).
■
Set Password Check for setup only or always.
■
Enable Unattended Start mode which, when enabled, allows the host
system to complete the boot process without a password, yet causes the
keyboard and mouse to remain locked until the user password is enabled.
Using passwords
If you set and enable a user password but not a supervisor password, enter
the user password to boot the system with unlimited BIOS Setup access.
If you set and enable both a user and a supervisor password:
■
Enter either one to boot the server and enable the keyboard and mouse.
■
Enter the supervisor password for full access the BIOS Setup to change
the system configuration.
Changing passwords
To change or delete an existing user password, restart the system and press
F1 to enter the BIOS Setup utility, then enter the password when the system
asks for it during the POST routine. To change the password, select Change
User Password from the Security menu, then enter and confirm the new
password.
To change or delete an existing supervisor password, restart the system and
press F1 to enter the BIOS Setup utility, then enter the supervisor password
(not the user password) when the system asks for the password during the
POST routine. To change the supervisor password, select Change Supervisor
Password from the Security menu, then enter and confirm the new password.

System recovery
We recommend that you take advanced precautions in case your hard drive
is damaged or your BIOS or system files get corrupted. This will make it easier
to restart your system and recover damaged files.
Creating a startup diskette
If your server hard drive is damaged, you may not be able to start the server
from the hard drive. A startup diskette is a bootable diskette that lets you start
the server and attempt to fix the problem.
When you set up Windows NT you are prompted to create a startup diskette.
If you did not choose to create a startup diskette at that time, you may create
one later by running the Windows NT upgrade/installation program.
To create a startup diskette:
1 Go to the DOS Command Prompt, and change to the C:\I386
subdirectory.
2 Type winnt32/ox, then press
ENTER
and follow the prompts.
Using your Server Companion CD
The Server Companion CD included with your system can be used to:
■
Install hardware drivers for a variety of operating systems
■
Reinstall selected utilities
■
Access system documentation
Instructions for each operating system are provided with the
Server Companion CD.

Cleaning the
Server
Cleaning the mouse
If the mouse pointer on the screen moves erratically when you move the
mouse, the inside of the mouse may be dirty.
To clean the mouse:
1 Turn off the server, then disconnect the mouse cable from the mouse port.
2 Turn your mouse upside down and remove the roller ball cover.
3 Cup your hand under the mouse and turn your mouse right-side up. The
roller ball should drop into your hand. If it does not, gently shake the
mouse until the ball drops out of the socket.
4 Use adhesive tape to pick up any dust or lint on the surface of the ball.
5 Wipe away dirt or lint inside the ball socket with a lint-free cloth. You
can also blow into the socket to remove dirt and lint. Use a cotton swab
dipped in isopropyl alcohol to clean the rollers inside the socket.
6 Let surfaces dry completely.
7 Return the ball to the socket and replace the cover.
Cleaning the mouse
103
8508366.book Page 104 Tuesday, October 23, 2001 11:29 AM
Cleaning the keyboard
You should clean the keyboard occasionally to free it of dust and lint particles
trapped under the keys. The easiest way to do this is to blow trapped dirt from
under the keys using an aerosol can of air with a narrow, straw-like extension.
If you spill liquid on the keyboard, turn off the server, then disconnect the
keyboard. Turn the keyboard upside down to let the liquid drain. Let the
keyboard dry for a few days before trying to use it again. If the keyboard does
not work after it is dry, you may need a new one.
Cleaning the monitor screen
Use a soft cloth and window cleaner to clean the monitor screen. Squirt a
little cleaner on the cloth (never directly on the screen), then wipe the screen
with the cloth.
Cleaning the server and monitor
cases
Caution
When you clean the system, turn off the server, monitor,
and peripherals, then unplug the power cords and modem
cord (if installed). Be careful not to drip liquid into the
server, monitor, and peripherals when cleaning the system.
Always turn off the server and other peripherals before cleaning any
components.
Use a damp, lint-free cloth to clean the server case, monitor case, keyboard,
speakers, and other parts of the server. Avoid abrasive or solvent cleaners
because they can damage the finish on your components.
Your server is cooled by air drawn in through the vents on the chassis and
blown out through the power supply exhaust fan. Keep vents on the front
and back of the chassis free of dust. With the server turned off and unplugged,
brush the dust away from the vents with a slightly damp cloth. Be careful
not to drip any water into the vents. Do not attempt to clean dust from the
inside the server.

Verifying your configuration
If your system is not operating correctly, the BIOS may contain an invalid
configuration parameter. Open the BIOS Setup utility and check your
configuration settings. (See “About the BIOS Setup utility” on page 85.)
Troubleshooting guidelines
As you troubleshoot your system, keep the following guidelines in mind:
■
Never remove the chassis cover while the server is turned on.
■
Do not attempt to open the monitor. Even if the power is disconnected,
stored energy in the monitor components can inflict a painful or harmful
shock.
■
If a peripheral does not work, make sure that all connections are secure.
■
If you see an error message on the screen, write it down, word for word.
You may be asked about it when calling Technical Support.
■
Only qualified personnel should open the system for maintenance.
If you are qualified to maintain the system yourself, make sure you are
properly grounded before opening the system chassis. See “Preventing static
electricity discharge” on page 22 for more information on preventing
electrostatic damage to the system.

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

Interrupts
The following table suggests a logical interrupt mapping of interrupt sources.
It reflects a typical configuration, but you can change these interrupts. Use
the information to determine how to program each interrupt. The actual
interrupt map is defined using configuration registers in the 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
138
If you disable either 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 SSU option does not make the interrupt
available.
