How to shut down and restart T310

Hello everyone,

We purchased a dental office that came with T310. This is out of warranty and service phone call with Dell is very expensive. We need this or a server on site for day to day operations. I am very new to using server. Firstly it is showing F1211 Raid Controller Battery on the display. Next, the start menu is not working - meaning when I click on start menu it doesn't do anything. Yes mouse is working fine because it can open folders on server. So in order to change the raid controller battery I need to do safe shut down. Do not want to do hard reset with power button and can't take a chance of loosing all the data. Please help. TIA.

Thank you. I will try that.

Does these shut commands should be entered at DOS prompt? I tried while the server is on desktop but no use. TIA.

Thanks everyone who suggested various options to shutdown my server. This opens up my next question - why is the 'Start' button on windows is not working either with the mouse or keyboard?

Hi, then could you please try to search something like this? This isn't a Dell material, so I'm just trying to give you an example. https://dell.to/3lGKtW5
