Proliant DL580 G4, 3 long beeps, no video

We just got a Proliant DL580 G4 last week. Try to set it up last week and was able to boot it up. Turn it on today and got 3 long beeps and no video. Try to find online what the 3 long beeps means, but could not find the answer. Can anyone help?

It may seem basic, but my first step would be to reseat the processors, PPMs, and memory. For the DL580 G4 this also requires reseating the proc/mem boards.

I have seen this symptom occur in the past when a server is started without the PPMs in place.

Good luck!

I think this is a memory configuration issue.

Reseat all the memory boards and the memory sticks!!
