    DBS1200KPR RAM and Video problems.

    Richard

      Hi all!

       

      I just bought an Intel DBS1200KPR board, Xeon 1230 v2 and 2 lots of 8GB Kingston ECC 1600MHz RAM (datasheet: http://www.kingston.com/dataSheets/KVR16R11D4_8I.pdf). With the memory installed the system refuses to post and gives an error in the form of 3 beeps repeating. According to the manual this means there is a RAM error, however the RAM is to spec as far as I can see. Any insights?

       

      Also if I install some normal DIMM's the system gives an error in the form of 2 beeps, break, 2 beeps, then the beeps stop and nothing appears on my monitor. I'm not using a dedicated video card. According to the manual this means there is a problem with the VGA option ROM, anyone know why this is occuring? Surely I don't need to waste my 1 PCI-E port on a video card?

       

      Thanks All!
