Sig Rig will not POST after RAM repositioning.

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I switched the ram modules from slots 1 and 3 to 2 and 4, now the system won't POST. Input devices such as keyboard and mouse will not power on either. I tried to reset the CMOS, by removing the CMOS battery. I also followed the manual instructions on moving the jumpers from 1, 2 to 2, 3. I have no idea why the system will not POST. All the lights show up and power on, the fans and everything, but it just won't POST. I moved the RAM modules back to 1 and 3, but it still won't POST. Any idea what happened?

Why did you move the RAM to different slots? Did you have them in wrong to begin with? Read the manual as far as DIMMs go and see what the correct slots are. Once you've done that, put them in said slots and try and start up the PC.

Okay, so I tested them, individually, they both POST. However, system won't POST in dual channel.

I see, so you had them in the incorrect slots to begin with? Alright, go ahead and seat them in the correct slots if they aren't already. Unplug the power cord, reset the CMOS again, and hold down the power button on the case for 5-10 seconds to drain any residual power. After you've done that, see if it boots.
