LED_D2 off means memory error...could be because you only have one stick slotted.
LED_D1 LED_D2 - Message
ON / ON - Normal
ON / OFF - Memory Error
OFF / ON - VGA Error
OFF / OFF - Abnormal: CPU / Chipset error.


Have you tried putting both sticks in the other 2 slots available?

that's a umm really cheap power supply

I would bet that's your problem trying to run your system on something that can probably only do maybe 200 watts.

In the first review page you can see it choked on someones x4 after only 2 months.

okay, I still can only get it to boot with one stick of RAM. I will now try to use the RAM in different RAM slots. There are 4 total starting closest to the cpu there is a red slot a white slot then a red slot and one more white slot.

Which 2 spots should the RAM be in?

Well I have now tried every to boot the computer with just about every combination of ways to place the RAM and nothing. The only way I can get the computer to boot and pass bio and run windows is to only have one 4gb stick of RAM in the spot closest to the motherboard.

Please help me some more with what to do. Thank you all for your help so far. I feel I am getting closer. I am so happy to be learning new things and I now have the confidence that my next computer I will build. :-) but for now I just want to get this one working.... so any more suggestions as to
How can I get the computer to boot with 8gb RAM (2x4gb)?

I wanted to update everyone on what has happened. I spoke with the person who sold me the machine and we tried some more things but still no solution,

This is what I did:

1. try booting with case lights and fans off and optical drive disconnected to be sure it was not from lack of power.

2. Tried booting with RAM using both channels neither would work with 2 sticks.

3. Restore bios to default

4. Downloaded the new updated bios from biostar on my other computer used a flash drive to load it on the new machine.

None of this has solved the problem: I am starting to think maybe motherboard issue? But I am still getting "Memory Error" message from the LED_D1 light on and the LED_D2 light off.

:gotproof:I think this memory error is the problem. But I am not sure what the error is. confused.gif I checked both sticks of RAM and they both work independently. So I am not sure what the memory error is. Anyone who has had this problem or any suggestions as to what to try next would be great. Thanks......

That is a 3+1 power phase he is trying to run the 6 core on.
I can see how this setup could be potentially finicky in compatibility & perhaps safety...

The Logisys PSU (majority of Logisys PSU are POS) just adds to the problem. Having a bad PSU with no current OCP adds a lot to the chances of catastrophic VRM failure.
Sorry to say this but you may need to redo your entire computer for the safest and most compatible operation. Change that motherboard and power supply!

What should I try now ?

Your motherboards bios will set a automatic voltage for your ram so you have to go in and change the dram voltage yourself to what your memory is rated for. For example my bios set my ram to 1.5v and it was rated for 1.65v so it would not boot with both sticks so you have to change that value yourself.

Nothing to see here:ninja:
