2850 - Memory/Battery Problems Were Detected

No time to determine which one was bad, so took battery, memory, and key from duplicate server and swapped out. Bought all three parts as a kit. Now, I have the three from the old (original with error) and then three new. Do I take the replacement server (the server I used to pull working parts from) and put in the parts individually to see what was actually wrong or do I just put all three new parts (new/used) at one time?

I have done this before with the same type of server, Dell PE 2850 Perc 4e/Di. When I did I tried individual parts but eventually had to replace all three before it was working again. Some say all at once and some say individually.

Thoughts?

Start with memory (make sure it is good). If you get this on every boot and the LCD screen is not showing a batt/volt error, then 99/100 times it s the memory.

Aside from replacing all three, the riser can also be the cause (memory slot).

Thanks. I went ahead and put in all three since the machine I was putting all three in was not the machine that was throwing the error to begin with. I was really hurt on time and went for all in one.

Thank you for the input though.
