MC850 Technical Resources

The MC850 can be opened by the user. This does not void the warranty, however, any damage caused by doing so will not be covered.

The following steps will walk you through opening your MC850 case, as well as auto-powering on and clearing CMOS.

Opening the MC850 Case

The case is very simple to open. To do so, remove the three screws from the back and slide the lid off towards the rear.

The following sections contain information on how to enable Auto Power On and clear CMOS for your specific model. To jump to your specific model, view the product list on the right.

How to enable auto power on

The auto power on feature will turn the server on automatically when AC power is connected or when power is restored after an outage.

  • Power on the server and press F2 a few times to access the BIOS
  • Navigate to the Advanced tab
  • Open the Chipset Configuration menu
  • Locate the Restore AC Power Loss option
  • Change it to “Power ON’
  • Press F10 to save & exit, and enter to confirm
  • Auto power on is now enabled

How to clear the CMOS

If the server fails to power on or is unresponsive, clearing the CMOS may help. It will also restore the BIOS to factory defaults. Ensure this procedure is done in a static safe environment. A grounding strap is recommended.

  • Locate the clear CMOS solder pads
  • Using a flathead screwdriver or similar conductive tool, short the two pins together for 30 seconds
  • Slide the lid back on, reconnect the server, and power it on
  • It may reboot several times to re-detect hardware
  • If it continues to malfunction, contact technical support.
