I just purchased the Intel DH55HC motherboard and a Core i3 cpu. I put the motherboard, 8 Gb of Corsair (2 4Gb Sticks of DDR3) in place and attempted to boot using the onboard video (DVI to monitor). I got a 1 very short beep and nothing else. CPU fan is spinning, motherboard has green light, fans are spinning.. but nothing on screen. About every 10 seconds or so, the 1 very short beep sounds again. If I take the memory out, I get the typical 3 beeps that indicates memory problems. Any ideas? Many thanks,
Is the memory you are using correct for the board (not all Corsair memory is compatible with Intel boards)? One short beep is all I normally get from my DG45ID when successfully booting but you should still at least get the Intel logo coming up on your monitor. I tried using the Corsair memory finder tool for your board but was unable to even find that board listed - not very reassuring
This is what Intel have to say about System memory for DH55HC.
