We have a Gigabyte GA-Z68P DS3 motherboard on a VMWare server.
The server's been running for a couple of months, but today we had a power surge.
The computer gives one beep, about 5 seconds later switches off, then restarts.
Unplugging all the cards, including the screen adapter does not produce any more beeps, same result.
I've tried a different PSU and still the same.
I swopped the RAM modules (test one by one) still the same.
Unplugged the HDD still the same.
Is this most likely CPU or motherboard damage?
