1-5-4-4 beep code for an Intel S5500HCVR motherboard

Hi,

I am swapping out a motherboard in a server for an Intel S5500HCVR model server m/b.  Added both cpus and memory.  I am getting a 1-5-4-4 beep code when powering up, which is a Power control fault (power good assertion timeout).  I've swapped out the p/s for a new one and get the same thing.  Also tested both PSUs with an Antec tester and they both appear good.  

I can't test the 2nd cpu slot independently due to this m/b needing slot 1 filled first, but I have tested both CPUs and memory in the 1st slot.

Is there something on this m/b that I'm missing in terms of power requirements?  The 8 pin CPU leads also tested good, FWIW.

Thanks!

Then it is probably a motherboard fault and hopefully you are in warranty and can get it replaced

Replac the cooling fans of Processors.   if you can use another type and retest.

Hi David,

Sadly, this model was EOL'd a long time ago.  I had forgotten I had it and decided to try it out.

I'll test each processor/fan combination in slot 1 and see what happens.  Thanks!

The Five Tenets of the Most Secure Backup

Data loss can hit a business in any number of ways. In reality, companies should expect to lose data at some point. The challenge is having a plan to recover from such an event.

Well, this is interesting.  Now neither m/b (the production one I took out) nor the Intel replacement will boot up.  Am using the original p/s with the production board, and the new p/s with the Intel replacement.  Tested both PSUs and they tested good.  The Intel board I tested outside the case and the production board while installed.  This is quite weird.  I haven't seen this in decades.

disconnect everything you can  - leave only cpu -1 ram stick, video card, keyb + mouse for testing
does it boot now?

Finally found it.  Apparently there is something odd with the 8 pin connector.  When I plugged in a Y splitter to it and plugged that into the m/b, it came up just fine.  But plugging the original 8 pin into the connector for CPU1 didn't do anything.   Possibly could be something w/ the connection on the m/b itself.   All I need it to do is run for another month, after which it will be replaced.

Thanks so much for the guidance!
