My Dell Poweredge 1850 hangs during POST. It displays a message saying: Memory/battery problems were detected. The adapter has recovered, but cached data was lost. Press any key to continue.
I press a key and the Server 2003 screen appears and starts to load but then the screen goes dark. It does not continue to boot.
I have read about replacing a battery and also trying CTRL M but I am not sure what to do. Could it be a battery and if so, is it the CMOS battery or is there another?
Any assistance is appreciated.
If your status light is blue (not amber, scrolling a message about the battery), then you need to replace the RAID memory/DIMM. Part number 4D554.
