4.2 Problems When Starting the Machine
Some problems often occur when the machine is started, generally due to incorrect hardware
installation and configuration. You may find and solve the problems referring to the following
4.2.1 System cannot be powered up
After pressing the power button, the power light is not on and the system maintains non-electric
state. Please try the following steps:
1. Check whether your power socket can supply power normally and the power cable is correctly
2. Repeatedly press the power button to start the machine (pay attention not to exerting too much
3. Disconnect the power cable from the system and open the chassis to check.
4. Check the fastness of the cable connection and accessory plugging in the chassis.
5. Remove other external components other than Inspur’s.
6. Pack the chassis, connect the power cable correctly and start the machine.
4.2.2 Monitor doesn’t display
It can be powered on (the host can start and run normally), but the monitor doesn’t work:
1. Check the correctness and fastness of the signal cable and power cable connected to the
2. Make sure to power on the monitor.
3. Adjust the contrast and brightness of the monitor to confirm whether it can display or not.
4. Shut down the system and disconnect the power cable to check whether there is curve in the
pin for connecting end of the monitor signal cable and the host.
5. Find another monitor for test if possible.
6. If the machine is installed with components other than Inspur ones, please remove them
7. With the permission of Inspur technical support personnel, you may pull and plug RAM and
clear CMOS for test.
4.2.3 Installation system can’t find hard disk
1. When installing the system directly booting from the system CD, if it prompts that no hard
disk can be found, please check the normality of the disk state and power on self-check hard disk
2. If the power-on self check can detect the hard disk but the hard disk can’t be detected when
the system is installed, it may be caused by the following conditions:
●Because the navigation serial number would be different when storage configuration is
changed, you should obtain a new navigation serial number from Inspur technical support before
you change your storage configuration.
●If you are using the system CD to boot and install the operating system, the hard disk drive is
generally added through USB flash disk. Please check whether the USB flash disk drive is correct
or not (the drive for external RAID card should be made directly from the attached RAID card
driver CD) and whether there is fault in the USB flash disk.
4.2.4 Keyboard and mouse do not work.
1. Check whether the cable joint of the mouse and keyboard is plugged and connected
correctly. Make sure the joint pin has no curve.
2. Check whether the mouse setting in the control panel of the operating system is correct or
3. It is suggested that you use the keyboard and mouse tested for compatibility by Inspur
group or replace with other keyboard and mouse for testing.
4.2.5 System blue screen, halt or restart.
For blue screen, restart or halt of the machine in the utilization of the windows system, you
may resort to the following measures:
1. If other external non-Inspur components or some application program software are
installed before the fault, it is suggested removing it and going on to test your server.
2. Use the latest antivirus software for antivirus test.
3.It is suggested that you record the displayed information code for blue screen, such as: stop
c000000218.....; stop: 0x0000007b. This kind of information reveals problems in the system. It is
suggested that you reinstall it. Please refer to this manual or call 8008600011/4008600011 for
4. If all above operations fail to solve the problem, it is suggested that you backup the file
winnt/minidump in disk C, and call the service center for support from professional technical
engineers who may ask you to provide minidump file for further analysis on the cause for blue
screen and halt. If there is no minidump folder in disk c, please refer to the following steps:
right-click on My Computer, select <Property>→<advanced>→<startup and recovery>, then
select <settings>, change <write debugging information> in the next page to “small RAM dump”
and restart the machine. The system will produce minidump file automatically in the next blue
4.2.6 Machine alarm
If there’s machine alarm in startup or utilization process, please refer to the following
1. If this happens after you plugged in some external board card, you may need to pull off
this device and to do another power-on test. If the alarm goes off, it shows that your external board
is incompatible with the machine. It is suggested not using it any more; If the alarm is still on,
please go on referring to the following steps.
2. If Info light on the control board of the machine is on red alert, then the system hardware
3. Locate the alarm sound:
●when the alarm sound is from the front of the chassis, usually we notice abnormal changes of
the fault indicating light. There is the possibility of abnormal fans or hard disk module;
●If the alarm sound is from the rear of the chassis, please check whether a redundant power
supply is configured or not and whether there is an abnormal status light of the power supply
module or a module without power cable (when power alarm goes on, the shield switch can be
pressed to stop it);
●If the alarm sound is in the chassis, the alarm may be from the motherboard, RAID card or
hard disk back plate. If it is also accompanied by no display on the monitor or power on faults,
there is high possibility of something wrong on motherboard. You can try to pull or plug RAM or
clear CMOS; if the starting self-check is normal and the alarm starts when the RAID card is under
test, and there is abnormal array information displayed, then it is likely that the RAID card has set
off the alarm. There may be array abnormality; when the hard disk back plate alarms, there is
always abnormal status light of the hard disk on the front panel, which can be used to our
