I buy this Board just a few weeks ago.
Till yesterday i was absolutely happy with the DX58SO.
Before I beginn with the Problem, here my Configuration:
DX58SO - BIOS 5559
CPU Intel XEON W5580
RAM Kingston HyperX 3*2GB
GPU nVidia GTX 460
I Think those are the Key Components.
The System works fine with this configuration. Yesterday i try to install an Adaptec Raid Controller, so i also can use SAS HDDs.
After I install it on the second PCI-E Port, the board starts with Fans on full speed for about 5 sec. Than it shout down and restart with Beep code but it boots.
The LEDs on the Controller working and he initialize the connected HDDs.
A few seconds later I can see the Board HDD LEDs flashing and I'm sure the OS booting but there is no Picture on the Display.
So I think the board have a problem with this Configuration. I read the manual but there is no info about using two different PCI-E.
Is there any solution how can i use this controller and my GPU at the same time?
Thanks in advance.
I'd recommend the following:
1. Make sure "Expansion Card Text" option is enabled. This is found in the BIOS, under the "Security" tab.
2. If the problem continues, make sure the wattage on your power supply is compliant; see page 56 of the Technical Product Specification here:
Very Imporant Note, which may be related: The Intel(R) Xeon(TM) Processor W5580 is not a compatible one for the Intel(R) Desktop Board DX58SO; see the following URL:
