no bootloader msgs

Dear all,

Just connected beagleboard. I could see its logo on monitor but i see nothing on my hyperterminal except one character(alphabet) randomly each time I connect.

I thought possible reasons could be

  1. improper settings in hyperterminal
  2. wrong connection of IDC10 cable on to RS232 slot of the board

so, i made a double check to make sure that I am doing right with above two points.

Any ideas on the problem?

to power up the board am just using mini B to std USB cable to usb hub which is powered up externally using an adapter.
Also I do not see the logo on monitor when all the peripherals are connected at once.


Read section 13 of the System Reference Manual.
