SL2x170z G6 - no video

Hey guys,

anybody ever encountered a non responsive SL2x170z G6 server before? I got mine a couple of weeks ago, and I only got to build it today. But there were no video displays from the two nodes I installed.

Was thinking this could be systemboard issues. But am still hoping there's something I could try to work around this other than replacing both the boards.

Any suggestion?

Cheap PCI video card from a old computer. See if it posts. Remove all other controllers and cards. Reduce RAM to 2 sticks. Bare bones test.

Thanks Michael, I did try to boot it up to bare minimum. Still no luck.

System board replacement would be my next move.
