P8Z77-V Pro Mobo, memory issue. Would like help :D

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey..

I've bought a P8Z77-V Pro mobo. And i also bought some memory.

Now, i was completely unable to figure out what memory the mobo could support, so.. i assumed that it would run smoothly with these, seeing as they are working in my friends P8Z68-V motherboard

The memory in question:
(My friend has the "non"-low profile version though)
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Corsair-CML8GX3M2A1600C9B-Vengeance-Memory-1600MHz/dp/B0058J1Q7O

Now, the problem is, the PC runs fine, with 1 memory block in the mobo.

if i put the other one in(so both are plugged in), it skips the mobo boot screen(cant enter bios) and claims it cant find a bootable harddrive, and my only option is rebooting, or reinstalling windows.

So my question is simply this:

are there any settings i can fiddle with, that could make it work?

And if not, what ram should i get? i'd prefer to have 8GB smile.gif

Seeing as this is a completely new mobo, i can't even find any information on Asus website.
I found crucials site had a list of memory that they claim runs on my mobo, but i cannot find them in any of the computer-stores i know of, here in Denmark where i live. (not the exact models they list on their site, anyways)

any help would be greatly appreciated smile.gif

Rest of the stuff:

Intel SSD (an older one)
i5 2500K Sandy Bridge CPU
Geforce 560-Ti OC (Gigabyte)
1200W Corsair Gold something PSU
Most of this stuff is reused from the PC in the signature

Probably forgot something...

Edit:

In the mobos manual it of course has a small list of memory capabilities.
from 1600Mhz to 2400(O.C.)
Most of the memory in the lists have (XMP) written at the end of the part no. Thats some settings in the bios. When i activated that, the pc kept rebooting and eventually asked me to enter bios to fix my settings

I know that Asus have recommended manufacturers that they work with. If I remember correctly this list should be within the Asus manual. Failing that:

http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1155/P8Z68V_PRO/#MSL

This is the URL where you can download the qualified manufacturers list for the P8Z68 board, I know that you've specified the P8Z77, but it seems like Asus are a bit slow in updating the information on their website.



---EDIT---

Seems like you've already tried my recommendations...oops!

I bought it from my local computer store.. (www.proshop.dk)
a bit above 200 $

They aren't listed if you browse in motherboards, you have to search Z77 smile.gif

This is from my manual

The G.Skill memory listed in the manual, cant be found by searching G.Skills site. OR im just a complete idiot who needs to be put out of my misery frown.gif

Have you tried using a single memory module in every memory slot to make sure there's no problems with the motherboard itself?

Also, how about that MemOK! thing which these boards are supposed to have. Saw it on the ASUS page when I was shopping for an upgrade myself! Press it! I have no idea what it does, but it's a button and therefore needs to be pressed! smile.gif

Well i would have tried that, if.. the problem sorta didnt solve itself

i ran with just 1 stick in, and .. i put in the 2nd one just to test it (so both where installed) and.. it worked.

HOWEVER; theres a new problem now:

it wont show the bios boot screen, so i cannot enter the bios.

I tried updating the bios, and i also tried resetting it AND removed the battery.

any tips on that? smile.gif

Is there any delay between the pressing the power button and the time you're seeing stuff on the screen? Maybe about 5-7 seconds or more? Not referring to the time for it takes for your monitor to get into gear, I'm wondering whether the BIOS screen is there, it's just not being output for some reason.

Perhaps try plugging your monitor into the integrated graphics ports and then see if you get the bios screen. If that doesn't work, take your dedicated graphics card out and try again on the integrated. And if that doesn't work... uhhhh. A SOLUTION IS STILL BEING FORMULATED..
