No external devices plugged in....
2 hard disks and an optical drive..
Tried to put on without connecting the drives, with the PCI card on the board. The error message comes up on start up itself.
I removed the PCI card and then tried to turn on. No error message.....
Replaced the PCI card with another make. Again the same error message.

What type of device (IDE, SCSI) are you trying to run off of the card and do you have another drive array in the server or other PCI cards?

I have to admit defeat on this one.  It seems obvious that there is some conflict especially when it goes away when you remove the card. And since the error occurs even with another PCI card, seems logical that there is something the mobo sees as a conflict. The only other thing that I can suggest is to look through the BIOS settings to see if anything pops...but I honestly can't tell you what to look for.

You might also give HP a call.  Their server service is pretty good and even if it's out of warranty they'll usually help you with some basic troubleshooting.

Thanks for trying to help me out.
I too felt that the problem has something to do with the BIOS. Wanted to change the IRQ settings... but couldnt.
I had got in touch with HP. They have suggested replacement of the motherboard.
Thanks again...

That's about where I was going as well.  Not that I am a super guru on this stuff, but I felt we had really worked through all of the other viable options.
