Computer not booting, giving an error 55.(Fixed Read the Miracle)

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello, so I seem to be having an issue which I can not solve. This is happening to the rig below that is shown on the forum.

It began when I turned off the computer, took out my graphics card to put in to another PCI-E slot(reasons are not related to this, I used to run xfire and when I took out one card awhile back I didn't realize that my card that i left solo in, was running in the x8 slot.)

So once I put the card back in, i go to boot up my computer like normal and it is giving me a Debug Code of 55 = Memory Not Detected.

Now, first thing I did is take out the ram and tried 1 stick at a time, but seems that no matter which combination or how many I try it doesnt boot. I then proceeded to try to put the 770 from my roomates computer in to mine to see if maybe somehow my 7950 is causing, I also tried putting the 7950 in to the old PCI-E slot, none of it seemed to work. I then tried my ram out on my other rig, and the computer booted just fine with the ram in it, so it is not my ram. I also tried the 7950 on my other rig and same thing, it booted just fine.

I've cleared the CSMOS via the button on the motherboard as well as took out the battery for 10+ minutes.

I can not for the life of me figure out why my computer was running fine and just by switching the gpu from one slot to another caused it to now constantly give me the 55 error.
Also to add, I tried putting in the ram from my other rig in to this one, and it would still give the error.

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!


Edit: So somehow After it just sitting there for awhile it finally started up, however now there is a new issue, it will only boot with 1 stick of ram in. If I try to put in another one it gives me the error 55. Now it is not the ram as it will boot up with 1 stick of ram no matter which one of the 4 sticks I use. But as soon as I use 2 sticks or more, it gives me error 55.

So an update, somehow after leaving it alone with all the ram inside for like 15 mins, i come back and it starts up just fine, but that is far from being the weirdest part, the weirdest part of it all is i posted a thread about a week ago that I was having issues with GW2 FPS going in to low 30s, today earlier I was playing and getting the usual 25-40 fps, but now that my computer threw a fit and I started up GW2 to test it out and I am getting a solid 50-70 fps, that is double of what I got before. I specifecly ran in to areas in game that would before drop my fps down to low 20's and now it never dips below 38 in those areas and in most where Id get 35-40 before I am now getting a solid 55-65.

I also booted up a few other games to test, and I on average gained 5-10 fps across games in some gaining as much as 25 more constant fps, such as BF3, BF4, Crysis 3, Tomb Raider, Thief, Witcher 2, and a few more.


I am honestly completely confused right now as to how this is possible. Or what was wrong with my computer, or pretty much with the whole situation. Anyways just thought I'd let you guys know this strange problem/miracle of mine.
