verify also if the bios battery is ok - the CR2032 should read 3V min
test also the powersupply voltages
here the intel codes :  https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000006001/server-products.html
best test the board outside the chassis - with opnly cpu - 1 ram stick, video, keyb+mouse

Read the below link,
But it does not say anything about 5L/3S beep

1. How about resetting the BIOS by removing the battery / jumper short.
2. Take out all the add on modules (Processor/Memory/Add on cards and all other cable connectors to motherboard
3.Reseat Processor, Power input , Keyboard , Mouse and with a single memory module and give a try
4. Try to Remove the keyboard and mouse and switch on
5.If you are trying with PS/2 Keyboard, try with a USB one
6.If your existing keyboard is USB, Try to connect to a different port and also try with a different USB keyboard.

It may be CPU failure.
Test with one processor at a time.
Re-seat RAM modules.

I have done these things but continue to have the same results.

I have already replaced the RAM in this board with other known good Kingston RAM from another known good S2600cp board and continue to get the same beep codes.

I have also tried putting a PCIE video card in this system board and continue to get no display.

What else can I do to fix this issue?
why don't you answer my suggestion?
did you test the board ouside the case ??
IT GuyNetwork EngineerAuthor Commented:
Yes I have also tried the board outside of the case and it hasn't worked.
RaneeshIT SupportCommented:
Seeing all the replies, doubting the board; a corrupted bios or some on board controllers (eg: Keyboard) damaged, I believe you have already tried with a single processor testing.
IT GuyNetwork EngineerAuthor Commented:
Thank you everyone for your help.

After replacing the power supply and obtaining the video card that the previous owner was using with this server board I now have a video display.
