PC won't post with two stick of ram, but yesterday it did?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone,

So yesterday I did my PC upgrade from AMD to INTEL, I switched over a new MOBO, CPU, HDD, but kept the same RAM sticks.

I have 2x4gb Corsair Vengeance.

After building yesterday it successfully posted and showed 8GB of RAM.

Today when I took off the case to install liquid cooling, after I started the PC, and immdieately at the debug LEDS I saw the number 2E (Which meant Memory initialization in the manual).. and before I could hear it beep, the PC turns off, and reboots.

and I tried it in the 3rd and 4th slot, didn't work

tried only one stick, It booted

tried only one stick (Using the other 4GB stick), didn't work.



So would this be the RAM?? But yesterday it booted with no problem and Win7 showed 8GB of RAM.......

MOBO: Asus Maximus Gene-z
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8gb (2x4gb)

Did you seat the RAM correctly? Sometimes you have to push down a little harder than you think to snap them in place.

Sounds like you should do a cmos clear,if you haven't already.Pulling your cpu or ram out and putting it back in could cause a need for it.

check the timings... i had a scenario where timings weren't consistent between sticks. put one stick of ram in at a time, check the bios and reset the memory settings to stock. do this for all ram sticks and then try both and see if that fixes it
