THEY LOVE US,
THEY REALLY LOVE US!

“Without a doubt, ByteSpeed support is #1. While we purchase only ByteSpeed servers in our district now, we have purchased servers from other companies in the past. As important as price is, they consistently give us a great deal on servers. If we run into any issues at all, their support team is quick to respond and are always able to resolve the problem for us. Getting price quotes is so painless with ByteSpeed. I ask for a quote and I receive it quickly without being hassled or pressured into purchasing. ByteSpeed is an all-around fantastic company to work with!”

“I have bought computers for business and education for 12 years. I have seen the customer service offered by computer manufacturer fluctuate in quality. ByteSpeed has the best customer service of any computer manufacturer I have dealt with. Great prices, great customer service and technical support, plus a 5-year warranty included in the price are the reasons I have purchased ByteSpeed computers and servers. I’ve used a lot of vendors the past 15 years, Compaq, HP, Dell, etc… However, ByteSpeed has the best support I have ever had from any of these vendors!!!!!!!! The hardware on both their computers and servers is exceptional.”

“I have been dealing with ByteSpeed now for almost 10 years and I can truly say they are a partner for education. It is refreshing to be able to go to my sales rep and listen. If I have a problem, it gets resolved. If I have a question, it gets answered. With a standard 5-year warranty on desktops and servers and excellent price makes it hard for me to choose anybody else. ByteSpeed has impressed me so much that I am now buying servers and more with them. I can’t say enough positive things about them.”

FAQ

What is happening when I see a blinking green Power Supply Status LED?

One blink per second means that the power supply is off, or in cold redundancy. Cold redundancy means one power supply is in an efficient low-power state, and it is not activated until it is needed.

What is happening when I see a blinking green System Status LED?

It could be one of the following:

  • The system has just had AC power applied.
  • The system is operating in a redundant state but with an impending failure. For example, two redundant power supplies are installed, but one has failed, is unplugged or is predicted to fail.
  • The system is in a Degraded state. The system is still functional, but a non-critical temperature or voltage issue has occurred.
  • Memory configured as RAS has failed.
  • Memory is transitioning to a warning state.

Why are my fans running at high speed?

Ensure that:

  • The power supply is firmly set into the power supply bay.
  • The connector to the power supply is secure.
  • The power cords are properly attached to the AC outlet.
  • In case of using pedestal chassis, make sure the top cover is properly seated.
  • Is the temperature of the room warm/hot?  The fans will automatically adjust speed to cool down the hardware as needed.
  • Try powering down and then powering back on the server fully.  A power fluctuation/surge could have tripped the fans into an error state.

Does it really matter what kind of UPS I use with my servers?

YES!  Do not use a “simulated” or “Stepped approximation to a sinewave” UPS.  Verify that the UPS is a “pure” or “true” sinewave model.  Use of simulated sinewave UPS’ will result in entries in the error log, excessive fan noise (from being in an error state) and potentially damage the server’s power supplies.

Can you provide me with the latest firmware or drivers for my server?

Yes. Please call and ask for “server support” at 888-658-0715” or email your request to serverteam@bytespeed.com
We will provide you with the latest available files and instructions on completing the updates.
