First Build... P6X58D-E Wont Push or Startup, Please Help

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
So I had just finished up my build yesterday and attempted to start up the computer, all the lights turn on, fans running, gfx card heatsink fan is running, everything looks fine. I plug in my PSU into the outlet and the EA12V and the 24pin connector in the mobo.

The power switch on the mobo lights up with a red color. I assume it means that current is going into it.

When I start it up with the power button (case or mobo doesnt matter, same effect)

All the fans kick up, I hear the hard drive, the GPU, all components look fine except despite having a monitor plugged in, it doesnt come out of power save mode for this entire process. (I KNOW there is nothing wrong with the monitor)

The DRAM LED stays continuously lit red for the whole time apparently indicating that there is an error with the memory. Reading the manual, it says to hold down the MEMOK switch until the LED starts blinking. So I hold down the MEMOK switch/button on the mobo for about 4 minutes, and there is no change at all... still steady red light.

I force shutdown by holding power button down. Try it again for a few times, tried taking out components from mobo and reconnecting them... same problem.

I know I stuck it in the same slot according to manual. Having three DIMMs, I take out one DIMM, start up... same thing. I take out two dimms, leaving one dimm... same thing. I unplug EVERYTHING but the little thing with the speaker attached to it, the two power cables in the motherboard. I take out ALL 3 DIMMs.... still same continuous red light.

According to manual, the mobo is supposed to beep through the speaker one time to indicate that there is no memory. However, for the whole time I was trying to get it to work, there was not a single beep from the case speaker whatsoever.

The only thing I did notice, that may or may not have mattered is that I plugged my hard drive into the mobo with a SATA 6.0gbps connector as opposed to a 3.0gbps connector initially, but I changed the cable immediately once I noticed.

I really hope someone can help me out, it is my first build and I am very shocked that it is not working on first startup.

My specs are:

CM 690 II Advanced Case
Mobo: P6X58D-E
i7 930 (stock heatsink)
Corsair HX750
Gskill PI 1600 3x2GB
Radeon 5870
Samsung F3 1TB 7200RPM

I wish there was a way for me to test the mobo before plugging in anything to test to make sure it works....

Everything is brand new. All the components appear powered up. What could be wrong? I hope you experts can help. The feeling of not being able to start up your PC after you spent so much time waiting for components, putting them together... just to not be able to start up your computer on first boot... is agonizing.

P6X58D-E. My old asus P7P55 did the same thing. Come to find out I needed a bios update for it to support my memory.

Yes, there were two captive plugs coming out of my PSU, the 8 pin and the 24 pin. I plugged both into respective slots.

I plugged it like the video shown here:

film_go.pngYouTube- &#x202a;Asus DRAM_LED red light P6X58D-E&#x202c;&lrm;
It is like that, but instead I use the stock intel heatsink and for the place where you see the case speaker plugged in, I plug in everything else into it as well including RESET SW, etc. Though the youtube video did say that his motherboard was defective and had it replaced, I am surprised considering the mobo I had was completely brand new, so I wonder if something else could be the cause.

Check you RAM product key in the qualified vendor list, it can be some compatibility issue.

The one I use is the: F3-12800CL6T-6GBPI from Newegg. The one in the manual (F3-12800CL8T-6GBPI(XMP)) may no longer be manufactured or something:

The one I use is:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2800CL6T-6GBPI

I think, even if the ram is not compatible, when I took out all three DIMMs, isnt the mobo supposed to beep once or something indicating that it couldnt find any memory?

Yep, looks like there's a compability issue that others are having with this type of memory. I almost purchased the exact same type of memory, but instead I went with the corsair dominators and have had no problem.

The memory you have is DDR 1333 PC3 10600 (Not 1600). I would recommend swapping these out for new memory immediately.
