What's the beep code? Below are the beep codes documented in TPS:
1-5-2-1 CPU: Empty slot / Population error CPU sockets are populated incorrectly – CPU1 must be populated before CPU2.
1-5-4-2 Power fault: DC power unexpectedly lost (power good dropout). Power unit – power unit failure offset.
1-5-4-4 Power control fault (power good assertion timeout). Power unit – soft power control failure offset.
Can you start with the minimum configuration - 1 CPU, 1 DIMM and 1 graphics card?
Firstly, Thank you for the responses.
As suggested, I have tried with only one CPU, RAM, Display Card. This did not solve the problem. I tried various combinations of RAM, CPU, and GFX card.
If I have only a single CPU installed, I get two faint beeps.
I am still concerened that the board starts immediately when power is supplied, i.e. I don't even get a chance to push the power switch.
