One of our Gateway 7400 servers has been beeping for days. The beep is audible, but very low and seems to be a random series of short high-low beeps that are sometimes slow and sometimes speedup significantly. It almost sounds like a key on the keyboard is stuck, but there is no real pattern that I can detect.
Something strange is this- when I remove the cover to examine the hardware, the beeping stops and does not start back until 1-10 minutes after replacing the cover.
One of the PSU's is bad and has been removed until it can be replaced. I thought this was the cause of the alarm, but now I am not so sure as the beeping continues.
The one SCSI drive in the array does not appear to be bad.
I really hate to ask this here, but the manual does not cover this AND I havent been able to find any info online. I am hoping there is a dinosaur somewhere with experience using 10-year-old Gateway 7400 servers.
Thanks in advance.
