Gene III wont post, DRAM LED lit

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
My pc wont post at all when I boot the dram led lights up. Connected my laptop with the RC poster program and it just says CPU Initial. Tried Memok using one stick of RAM in all sockets using various ram sticks but it still wont work, memok fails every time. Fans spin up full speed.

Tried resetting cmos, processor reseat, bios chip reseat, taking mobo out case, im stuck for ideas. Anyone got any before I attempt to RMA?

Thanks.

I would look into testing the CPU in a different board. Sounds like it could be the IMC. Also try the ram in a different board if possible. Outside of those two things I would say you have exhausted your troubleshooting possibilities.

Haven't got one available unfortunately, wish I did. Thanks for your help.

I know this may sound a bit silly, but have you checked to see if the DIMMs are fully in?

Just looked at your board and noticed that it has ASUS' one-click RAM slots (one side has the click, other side doesn't -- kind of hard to tell if your DIMMs are fully in because of this... least I had this issue on my Z68 board).

Yeah I think they are in. Just checked and the vengeance spreaders are almost touching the ram part of the slot. I have three sticks so im guessing at least one of them should be in properly, im pressing really hard and hearing them click in. I wish Asus wouldn't use the one click slots, I thought they were cool until I got my hands on this board.

It's either the mobo or the CPU. My Gene IV did the same thing and the CPU turned out to be dead, even though it was the DRAM light that was on.
