Computer won't boot up but everything else powers on - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Thread Starter 
ok so back to another update. got everything running and did memtest 4.0 for 2 hours with no errors. starting doing some updates and windows gave me the BSOD and turned off and now it won't post again. It wasn't the normal IRQL not equal or less error. it was something and i believe it gave a file name but it happened pretty fast. so again i'm guessing it is the motherboard now

Try only using those three sticks of RAM you know work, in the 3 slots that you know work. Then update, after that if everything is running smoothly use the other stick.

I faced the same exact issue on this board for a Hackingtosh build I made a while back.
Figured out it was the positioning of the ram, as this board inherited the
temperament of the GA-EP31-DS3L (ICH9 > ICH7)

Works ok when you install only one memory module on either dimm 1 or 3.
For two memory modules, make sure you place them on the same ones, because if you place them on dimm 2 or 4 and if the frequencies dont match, the board will not post.
But if you populate all 4 dimms, make sure you match at least 1 and 3 first, and then 2 and 4.
