I installed a brand new Intel DP67BG board that I had with a brand new Core i7-2700 processor I won as a Geek Squad employee. I tried two different video cards ASUS Poseidon & GeForce 9800 GTX but get no video from either. The motherboard beeps several times and the codes on the board are 5A, E6, E7, 00. I cannot get any video and can't get into the BIOS.
I also have brand new RAM from Corsair: CMVGX3M2A1333C9 x 2=16GB
A brand new board that is from 2011?
A brand new processor from 2011?
How many beeps? This is important.
Surprised geek squad cannot figure this out.
Hi Doc, thanks for the reply. I was a Geek Squad agent back then and I won it from Intel. The board beeps twice and then a little pause and it beeps two more times... I haven't taken it to Geek Squad and I'm stumped...
2 beeps is a video card issue.
So, you kept this board and processor for 8 years and are just now trying to use them? Just curious.
Also, once you do get the video working, you will need to update the bios. Respond back with the bios version you have. There is a very specific procedure for updating a board this far out of the current bios.
I know you said you tried two different video cards. You will have to try a known good card.
UPDATE: I pulled the video card and tried to start. There are NO cards installed!! I got the same problem. Two beeps Code 5A & E6 Two mopre beeps and then Codes E7 & 00
What do you mean you "pulled the video card"? The board has to have a functioning video card installed.
I am trying to help you. Two beeps means there is a problem with the video. It is either malfunctioning, or missing, or something.
Someone suggested removing all cards so I took the video card out also. I still got the beeps with no video card installed. I was saving these parts until I had enough extra money to build a new computer and forgot about them until the board went out in my pc so I upgraded everything. The old video card was a GeForce 9800 GTX and I got an ASUS Poseidon from a friend that upgraded to a newer card but neither works.
Well, I am at a loss. Someone who knows the board better than I will have to comment.
I am still leaning on the video cards being bad. Do either of the cards require additional power? Do you know if the power supply is good?
The card has two dedicated power plugs. Thank you so much for your help. I will try to find a VGA card to see if I get the same results. I don't think it could be the RAM because Crucial looked up the board before they sold it to me...
Maybe some other Intel GURU can take over where you left off???
Both cards have two six-pin power plugs on top and I believe that I have a good 850 watt PSU. I am going to try to see if I can check anther PSU and a VGA video card.
Maybe that will help figure it out.
