Asus P6x58d-e Won't Boot - Stuck After Mem Test

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Last night I was playing starcraft II and the game shut down 2x during 2 hours of play. This has never happened before so I decided to restart the system. Well, it would not boot. I believe last night the mem test light was on. I left the system in the start up state and went to bed hoping it was just taking a LONG time to start.

Today I have removed all memory modules and added one at a time to test them all out. None of the ones that were working seem to be working now. I then checked one of my old 2gb modules with the same result. The system gets to the memory check line and then will not go beyond that. It checks the usb controllers fine too. I did notice that the memory has been reset so the system seems to have reset the CMOS on its own when this happened. I always set my ram to 1600mhz but it currently is set to the default 1066mhz. I have had the system for 5 years now. I replaced the PSU about 7 months ago. The mem test light goes on for only a few seconds during startup now instead of staying on. I could not find this problem anywhere. Lots of people have systems that will not post but getting stuck in the bios startup is not common.

I did notice that it was taking a bit longer to come out of sleep over the past 2 weeks. It has been much warmer in my office, about 80-85 degrees max in the room on a very hot day.

Please advise.
Thank you.

Thats a bit tough to nail right off the bat. Try unplugging the power supply and removing the cmos battery to reset the bios. then try 1 stick in slot 1 and see where you get. can you access the bios or does it get caught on the memory and stay there? if you can access the bios see if it is recognizing the 1 memory stick. its most likely either the board or the memory stick but im feeling it might be the board in this case. The hotter temps might have been taking its toll overtime on the older board. hope this helps a bit.
