RD640 beeps on startup

2021-05-30, 15:52 PM

Putting a older working RD640 back in service, after sitting unused for a year or so. Replaced the system battery. Continuous beeping on startup. No diagnostic LED's on the front panel. Can get to bios setup screen. Can get the unit to boot off of my server CD, all the while still beeping. A bit puzzling to me. Any ideas?

Hi ricks707


Have you connected any RAID adapters or PCI adapters. Maybe you can try to remove those adapters from the RD640.

Although the RD640 is not on the list, found one tip was about the nonstop beep alarm. Still worth a try: https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/ht078386-raid-controller-alarm-will-not-stop-beeping-thinkstation-thinkserver
