I have assembled a pc with the following components:
I am at the point where I want to power up the PC build so I can adjust the BIOS settings to have a USB memory stick as the 1st boot option. On power up, I hear 3 quick beeps (that is not on the error code list in the motherboard manual) and so it sits with the fans running. It appears the monitor is not getting a signal through the HDMI connection. Yes the monitor works, however, this is the 1st time trying to use it with a HDMI connection.
A review of the X9SAE-V mother board Quick Reference Guide has a footnote indicating the model number of the CPU must end in a 5 and uses Model E3-1205 as an example. Looking at the specifications on the box, I see no mention of a model # anywhere.
Am I correct to assume this CPU has a built in graphics core or is this a symptom of the 'black screen' syndrome? Any help provided would be greatly appreciated. I also have a question on the SuperMicro site outlining my issue.
I am sorry to hear that have had issues with your motherboard model.
Three beep codes is an indication of memory problem. You will need to check memory sticks or check with your board maker for troubleshooting tips.
If the problem remains after testing the memory, please bear in mind memory controller hub is located on the processor itself, as this may get damage, please test your motherboard with another processor.
