Problems with new build.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I just finished building my first computer and I can't get anything to show up on the screen. When I power the system on, everything starts for a few seconds then it shuts down and starts up again which I guess is a double boot? When it comes back up it stays on and the fans spin but there is nothing on the monitor and the DRAM_LED light stays lit with '2e' on the LED display. According to the manual, '2e' means memory initializing but it never gets past this stage. I have tried pushing the MemOk! button which just makes the light blink and the system restart but then it just goes back to a solid red light and '2e' and a blank monitor. I have also tried reseating the RAM in different slots and tried just one stick but same thing happens. I tried taking all the RAM out and starting the computer, then it beeps like crazy and displays 22 (no memory), then 55 on the LED display. Does that mean it's most likely my RAM or MoBo?

I am using the Asus P8P67 Deluxe and Corsair Vengeance RAM.

Clear CMOS / UEFI or whatever bios replacement it has, reseat cpu, double check power connectors. wink.gif You never know, could have missed something!

If you wouldn't mind, please upload a video of the booting action.

Do you have any other memory you can try?

I saw a problem like this once before and it turned out to be a compatibility issue between the board and the ram. Switching to a different type resolved the problem
