    New S3420GP install, beep code 1-1-4 or 1-1-1-3?

      Hard to tell which, there's kind of a stutter after the third beep, not the same length as the first two true pauses, and not as smooth as the last two.


      We're using no PCI cards, very barebones as this is in a generic 2U case we plan on using for testing purposes.

      Xeon X3450 processor

      2x Crucial CT51272BB1067Q 4gb memory sticks


      The code does not cause a no-POST scenario, it continues to allow access to BIOS and then attempts to load bootable material (none yet, resolving obvious errors before wasting time). The total memory installed in the BIOS is reported correctly for the two 4gig sticks installed.


      The LED's when the beep code is heard come up as:

      X 0 X 0 X 0 0 0 - 0x57h - Reserved for PCI Bus 

      and shortly after switches to 

      X 0 X 0 0 X 0 0 - 0x5B - Reserved for ATA


      The LED's are dancing around too quickly to take note of except for these two hardware tests(?), as I'm assuming is normal on power up.


      Any ideas why I'm getting the beep code?  Otherwise everything seems normal.  /shrug


      Here's a video of what I'm experiencing to explain the codes better. Thanks!
