Can't POST DRAM light solid

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

This morning i tried to start this computer and i got No post No beeps just a solid dram light MEMOK.

I have tried pressing the dram light for 4 sec so it starts blinking, also taking out the CMOS battery to reset the bios.

I had the same problem about 4 weeks ago with this computer and resetting the cmos fixed it, but this time i cant get it to POST.

Could it be faulty ram? Before this it ran everyday for about 1.5 years with no problems.

It sure can be. Ram can fail at any time. Try another stick. Its got a lifetime warranty.

In the slots furthest away from the cpu. That way, if you have a problem with the dimm traces, it will show up immediately rather than down the road when you put in additional ram.
