Can't get past the Video stage during POST

I just upgraded to my PL7K to v4.08a. Every time I reboot since then, I can't get past the Video stage during POST. I tried to disable the on board video and put a video card in the server, but it still hangs there. Funny thing about it though, even when using the on board video, the monitor has power like it is receiving a signal, just no display.

Have you tried clearing NVRAM (SW1 switch 6 to "ON" - power on till error (hopefully) appear, then off and set it back)?

Re: Can't get past the Video stage during POST

I've tried everything. I've set SW6 to on to clear the NVRAM. I've put in another video card and set SW1 to on. Still won't go past the Video.

It clicks through the following: System Init, PCI Auto Cfg. then hangs on Video. I've removed the SPB and reseated it, still nothing. Next I'm going to try a different SPB from another 7000. Hopefully that will work but then I'm going to have to get a new SPB.
