Came in this morning and the server is up and running. There is no video output. The keyboard lights are blinking in a pattern. 2 blinks - pause - one blink - pause - repeat. Keyboard, mouse and monitor all test good. I'm hesitant to reboot.
In order to better assist with your problem, please help us by providing the following information:
Model of the Intel(R) server board.
Model of the Intel(R) processor:
The part number of the memory:
Is this a new installation or does your system was working before?
What troubleshooting have you tried in order to fix this problem?
Intel Server Board is S1200BTL Version E98681-352
Intel Processor is Xeon CPU E3-1230 v2
Can't seem to get the part number of the ram. I ran CPU-Z and Speccy and all it gives me is DDR3, Dual Channel and 32GB
OS is Windows Server 2008 R2 64-bit SP1
Actual Server is R1304BTLSHBNR so it was a bare bones unit in a 1U enclosure.
I am able to RDP into the server as it is still running flawlessly. I checked the video driver and its dated 2010, so no recent updates. I checked for updates and there was none.
I checked the event log and there is nothing unusual.
The server is using onboard video (but obviously its not working).
I found a section in the service manual that discusses add-in video adapters. In regard to disabling onboard video it says:
Warning: System video is completely disabled if this option is disabled and an add-in video adapter is not installed.
Could be that I just need to reset the CMOS.
I have purchased the smallest PCIe VGA card I could find and a flexible cable to install it in case the PCI riser card is not on the MB.
