CHV no boot, DRAM_LED blinking - Page 2

post #11 of 26
when i experimented with my ram setings i found that i could not get it stable at 7-7-7-21, the lowest i could achieve was 7-9-7-21. this was at 1866Mhz but lowering frequencies and tweaking voltage did not improove mouch(at best i was able to get into windows for a breif amount of time before BSOD). try C7-9-7-21

I can't try anything...no boot, meaning no post.

Impatience was not the issue. Booted off the MemOK button, and let the light blink for about 25 minutes. No change with boot or blink speed.

Here's your options and this is the order that I would do them in. This is taking into consideration what you have already tried. Try one step then advance to the next if the previous fails. I know this is a pain, but we've all been there at some point.

1. Try Reset CMOS button, could be something in BIOS hanging.

2. Try another stick of RAM. Borrow or buy a cheap DDR3 for $10-15 from a local computer store. If it boots, then we know your RAM is the culprit.

3. Take the CPU out, check for bent pins. Re-seat the CPU, lever is down, make sure you don't over-tighten cooler.

4. Take out the motherboard, place it on a anti-static surface and hook everything up to it outside the case - if it boots up no problem then there is something in the case shorting it out. Make sure all motherboard standoffs are being used, have a screw, and are tight. Insure there is nothing behind the motherboard that could be shorting it out, loose screw for example. Shake case!

5. Call ASUS directly 1-812-282-ASUS(2787). They will most likely tell you to RMA it if you explain the steps you have taken already.

6. RMA Motherboard.

I'm also having the same problem. I hit Reset cmos then the light goes out but my red LED CPU light stays on and it won't POST. I have the speaker hooked up as well and it won't beep either.

Your problem is different, yours is the CPU light, his is the DRAM light.

However, you can follow steps 3 and 4 of my post to fix your issue.

If that doesn't work, start your own thread so we can address your issue directly.

Step 4 will take awhile to set up, so it may have to wait until Sunday, but I should be able to try everything above it today. Thank goodness it's the weekend of the company BBQ. And, working at a brewery, I am sure to forget what problems I have by about noon tomorrow.

Nice, doesn't everyone wish they worked at a brewery or knew someone that did? LOL

No doubt, I have a dream job...even on the rough days, it's a great job.

And they spotted me a stick of DDR3 out of a new computer that hasn't been set up yet, so I can test that out as soon as I get home. Praying that's the case. Well, maybe not, because I love my Ripjaws, and I would hate to have to buy new memory, but at least I'll know what's up.

That was nice of them to let you borrow the RAM

Our IT guys would have a seizure if I opened the side of my case, lol.

Let us know how it goes.

Memory is finicky stuff, Try just one or two sticks. Once they're clipped in and sitting there, try pushing down on them with your thumbs, give it a good amount of pressure, try not to bend the mobo though.

I've had to do this a few times with certain boards.
