DG33TL problem - All fans turn, disks and memory warm, 3 beeps and no video

I just replaced my DG33TL and when I turn it on I get 3 long beeps and no video or bios display.

Memory and CPU worked before the old board went south and I am looking for suggestions on what to test.

I can't find this issue in a search.

TIA

Hello Carey, thank you very much for contacting us.

It would be necessary to find out if all components are compatible. Since you are getting a 3 beep code which means an issue related to memory.

This page will give all the support on this board, please check it out for additional information. http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/highlights/dsktpboards/dg33tl http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/highlights/dsktpboards/dg33tl

  • Please let me have the model number of the CPU and memory you are installing on the board. I will let you know if this is a compatibility problem.
  • Please also include the model number of the video card.
  • If for any chance you are able to access the BIOS, please check which BIOS version is installed on this board. It might need a BIOS update.

The only thing that changed is the board. I had a DG33TL before which I accidentally bent the cpu pins and had to replace the board.

I am using the same cpu, memory and on board video on the new board which worked before.

I tried updating the bios with a flash drive and the latest bios but when I power it on I get an immediate 3 beeps, no monitor from either the on board video or a NVidea GTX250 which worked before and works with another older board with a dual processor Pent. D The flash drive light does not come on.

Since there is no video I have no way of seeing what bios is on this board.

thanks

Carey, please test the board out of the chassis and please use only one memory stick on DIMM # 1.

 

You may want to try another power supply and also do a clear CMOS http://www3.intel.com/cd/channel/reseller/emea/eng/membership/411560.htm How do I clear the CMOS?

Did that and have some interesting issues.

I can populate Chan B memory with the Oz 2gb memory and get it to boot but if I put any memory boards in Chan A I get the 3 beep error.

Here are the details

On boot screen it shows

Mem 667

I noticed that there is a Bios upgrade available. Would that solve my issues with the missing memory?

thanks

Carey, a BIOS updated would be a good idea since the current BIOS version 0413 is from 2008.

The latest version available is 0572; however it will be necessary to install at least 2 versions before installing the newest.

You could update the BIOS using the following versions:

If the issue persisted, you may need to contact our warranty team to replace the motherboard if it is still under warranty.
