Server not display after added second CPU

I just got a new HP DL145 G3 2214 HE Server with one dual core cpu,tesed it , full working. But after I added the second cpu, the system don’t boot up, power is on, fans are running, LED's green, and not error beep, but just no display on monitor.
The second one cpu is brand new HP 2214 HE DL145 G3 dual core processor kit (P/N 411605-B21), I swap both CPU, all only work on first cpu socket, that means if I just used one CPU, system will working normally, but if two, not working.
Any one know what's the problem? Thanks

I have just updated the BIOS to 2007.7.19 A Version(the newest one ) and try to clear CMOS, but the problemâ s same as before, did not solve it.

Re: Server not display after added second CPU

well I would say slot 2 is faulty since both procs are working fine in slot 1

Thanks Karlo.
That's new one, if it's hardware faulty, I will be very sad.
Do you think that just putting CPU on Slot 2 and left slot 1 empty for testing will be safe? Follow the office guide, it only suggests slot 1 first.

Just put one CPU only on Slot 2, server didn't allow power on. And I put all 8 slots Memory chip(1 GB each),total 8 Gb, but only show 4 GB memory in POST.
