I'm saying I can't get into UEFI. Nothing appears on the screen and at this point there is nothing I can do except press the motberboard's buttons.

Try removing all the memory modules from the mainboard. Reset the BIOS either using the jumper/battery method. Place 1 stick of memory in the A2 slot on mainboard. Attempt to boot the system now. If you still cant POST then remove that module from the A2 slot and replace it with your other module and try again.
Im doubtful a BIOS update would fix this though because to me and im sry to say this I think it`s pretty likely the Mainboard is faulty frown.gif

I will post all responses/suggestions regarding your problem in this section Giecsar not to flood the forum with posts m8.

I think it`s highly doubtful that both your sticks of Memory would be faulty so you should be able to POST the computer with one stick and get into BIOS.

Update - Just out of curiosity is the part number of those Corsair Dominator GT sticks you have listed in the QVL section of your motherboard manual? Could it be a fluke your system ran the first time and then you ran into issues because your BIOS is to early to recognise those sticks? Just seems odd how you ever had it working in the first place. Maybe if you could only get into UEFI to update BIOS I guess you stand a chance of fixing your issue. But not even being able to get in UEFI is a real problem.

Update again - Ok your up and running. That is good!! P. 2-23 of the manual indicates AA is an ASL error code which relates to the power management settings. Let me look into that some more but I strongly advise you update your BIOS now.

Thanks for you reply, I will try your suggestions now.

It seems to be working fine now! (with just one stick in the slot you mentioned)

Question: is the error code "AA" normal ? That's what the motherboard is constantly displaying after the system has fully booted into windows.

Happy your up and running again! Are you hearing a continuous beeping noise though? or do you have any other codes flashing up? Also I strongly advise you update your BIOS now. I would not add that 2nd RAM stick until you have updated BIOS and full system stability. Chances are that 2nd stick could well be faulty. Also when you do decide to add the other stick make sure to sit it in slot B2 on motherboard (both the blue slots). You prob know that anyway smile.gif

EDIT - "AA" apparently is normal for the Deluxe from what I have just read here:-

Apparently my BIOS is the latest version so there is nothing to update.
I've tested some more and each module seems to be running fine independently in any slot.
My guess is that the mobo doesn't like dual-channel for some reason, will test again with both sticks.

Regarding the error codes yes, a lot of codes flash before "AA" but it's so fast there is really not enough time to read them.

Ok so it is clear now that the modules don't work in dual channel mode regardless of the slots they're in frown.gif

Remember to use the latest CPU-Z, or it will not show Dual channel on Sandy systems.

Is there any reason why ASUS recommend us to use slots #2 and #4 instead of #1 and #3?

Not that it matters to me, just wondering.

Good question. On 775 systems they always recommend using slots #1 and #3 for better overclocking.

Probably has something to do with PCB layout/Sandy architecture.

Wonder if same rules goes for other brands too.. ?

You don't understand, the system doesn't even POST with two sticks installed.
