HP Dl 360 g4 p server giving long beeps continuously no video

hi,
our hp dl 360 g4p server is giving long beeps continuously after ~20secs,20secs long beep approx. when power button is pressed .Power button is working fine.when pressed,server makes sound like booting,but internal health led turns red and no video at all.We have tried to swap/remove memories,power supplies.Also tried to reset nvram,but nothing worked.Also we have tried to boot it with minimal configuration like no hdd,single memory,removed raid contoller,cdrom but still continuously beep sound and no video.Kindly suggest solution other than replacing system board.

when you remove or swap memory, be sure to follow these guidelines or the system won't boot

When upgrading memory, DIMMs 1A and 2A must match. DIMMs 3B and 4B, and DIMMs 5C and 6C must match and must be installed as a pair. When DIMMs 1A and 2A are populated the system is automatically configured for 2:1 interleaving. When four or six DIMMs are populated with identical DIMMs the system is automatically configured for bank interleaving.

start with min config , remove all extra options yes all of them ,
and reseat w#the min ram that is installed..

then try reboot , if no joy see if you can log into ilo and che the iml log and

hp servers rely on ligh leds on front , and on sys board , not beeps really ....
enjoy and feedback K..

If ther eis isuue with memory, you will not get video. In your original post you stated you took the system down to single memory. That system requires at least 2 banks of memory, which is why I posted the memory configuration. Guess I should have explained a bit better
