Read the below link,
https://www.intel.in/content/www/in/en/support/articles/000006001/server-products.html
But it does not say anything about 5L/3S beep

Suggestions:
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.

Raneesh,

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?

Yes I have also tried the board outside of the case and it hasn't worked.

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.

verify also if the bios battery is ok - the CR2032 should read 3V min
test also the powersupply voltages

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.
