Arseerse, please try the following steps, since we need to be able to go to BIOS in order to chance the settings.
- Could you please remove the video card and use the onboard video?
- You can try a BIOS recovery and install the previous BIOS version 0314. You would need to remove the BIOS jumper and try to roll back to that version. Desktop Boards — Instructions for Recovery BIOS update
I would recommend you to troubleshoot the system out of the chassis with minimal configuration such as Motherboard, processor, power supply, 1 memory stick.
I removed everything already! Minimal config.
Starting without video card ends in 2-beep loop.
Starting with video card (I tested 2 different) ends in 2-beep loop.
Starting with/or without videocard and having bios jumper off ends up in this
"detected security jumper removed" message on the screen.
but i cannot interact with the computer, Bios is not accessible when pressing F2
I only can reboot ctrl-alt-del
@Arseerse, can you please remove the CMOS battery and leave the system without it for about an hour. You should be able to access the BIOS after that. Then, do a BIOS recovery to version 0314.
If all these steps do not resolve the issue, you would need to RMA the board.
@intel_haswell, are you running BIOS version 0317 also? Try doing a clear CMOS and let me know.
I tried the whole procedure like in https://communities.intel.com/thread/44769 with 10 hours without battery an unplugged but nothing helps.
What have done before:
After my first start I updated the BIOS from 317 to 320. Then I deactivated the internal graphic and from this point I only get 2x2 beeps without any graphical output. I only got an output when the BIOS jumper was removed but in this mode I wasn't able to get in the BIOS setup.
I read some test and it looks like it is a very good board but this problem must be solved in a future BIOS version. The ability to deactivate the internal graphic should be removed. I think the options initial graphic to PEG and automatic disable of internal graphic when PEG is plugged is enough.
Today I sent it back to the shop and I hope I will get a new one.
Which BIOS version should I use?
Which combinations of bios options are similar dangerous?
Bye for now
next board on the way back to intel.
i got a new board and installed it, the old one is on the way back to the distributor,
i installed windows, everything worked fine.
I did two bios changes: activated intel RST.
and after installing windows i deactivated legacy boot in order not to wait for cd-rom drive and restarted:
ENDED UP in 2-beep LOOP!
no chance to erase cmos even with removing battery.
so i ordered the third board just now and this one will go back to intel
so DO NOT DEACTIVATE ANYTHING IN BIOS WITH THIS BOARD!!!
Guys, we already notified our engineering team about this situation. As soon as I receive any information I will provide the answer on this thread.
Would you please fill in the following information:
- AA number and Serial number of the motherboard:
- Processor model:
- Memory manufacturer and part number:
- Wattage and model of the power supply installed:
- Model number of the PCI-e devices installed:
- Any additional peripherals:
You may want to check the following thread from a user that was having the same behavior and he got it fixed https://communities.intel.com/thread/44769
the thread is the same I posted in my 2nd answer with not effect.
But here the facts:
- AA number and Serial number of the motherboard: I sent it back, it was a bulk DH87RL
- Processor model: i7-4771
- Memory manufacturer and part number: Kingston hyper X 4x 4gb KHX1600C903K4/16GX
- Wattage and model of the power supply installed: 500W Cooler Master
- Model number of the PCI-e devices installed: only a gigabyte 670 GTX and 460 GTX to test
- Any additional peripherals: none
the 2nd board has arrived. I flashed Bios 320. Install W8 with UEFI Mode and everything looks good. But I hesitated to change LEGACY support or deactivating internal graphics. Is there somthing new about this BIOS problem? Will be an corrected Version in the future? Have you recognized and reproduced the problem?
It looks like it is an general problem because I read many post from other users in other sources.
Bye for now.
