First Build... P6X58D-E Wont Push or Startup, Please Help - Page 3

Isn't there a MemOK button on the motherboard?
Yes, its right next to the red DRAM light. I held the memtest/memOK down for about 4 minutes and nothing happened, led stayed continuously lit both when I had DIMMs in, and when I took out all the DIMMs.

it's like you guys don't read the original post. He's pressed the memok button, and it's most likely not a ram issue cause he's tried turning on his system with no ram in it...

As for clearing the CMOS, is there a button battery somewhere on the mobo? clearing the CMOS is usually accomplished by removing the battery for awhile (ten minutes? not sure) and then putting it back in, or by configuring the jumpers. Your mobo manual should have a section on how to accomplish that.

If that doesn't work, I would just RMA it.

I will plan to RMA the mobo today, and see if a replacement can solve the problem. I think this time around, I will just plug both power connectors into the motherboard, plug in the Speaker, processor, and heatsink outside of the case with no dimms installed. (similar to film_go.pngYouTube- ‪Asus DRAM_LED red light P6X58D-E‬‎)

And see if I can hear a beep indicating that memory is not available. If you guys feel this is bad for the mobo or if I am missing anything, please let me know. The CMOS reset is something I have not yet tried, so will attempt to do so if new one does not work.... I really REALLY hope it works.

What? Dont RMA the board without resetting the cmos... That could end up being a waste of up to a week and a half over something that takes literally less than a minute to do.

Hi guys, first time post here. I actually signed up just to post in this thread because I fought with this issue over 3 days last week and ended up missing my return window, which I'm considering a possible mistake. RMA is out and we will see what happens next.

So here are my findings:

There are a very high number of these boards experiencing this issue. You can read about it for yourself on the Asus forums. Many RMAs to newegg are getting denied because users are inadvertently bending socket pins. I went over mine with a magnifying glass and found nothing.

I tried every trick and procedure under the sun to get thing to post. I read entire threads. My memory, TR3X6G1600C8D is listed as compatible. I did not have extra parts to troubleshoot various components since this is a full upgrade. I tried my old power supply with the same results, outside of the case even. I reseated the CPU I don't know how many times.

On paper and in reviews this is an amazing board. It is thermally one of the highest ranking in it's class if you consider it's big brother which shares the same manufacturing process, as compared to the ultra-cool MSI Big Bang. At this price this board is a steal.

It's a little heartbreaking and I really hope that I didn't throw away $240. Wish me luck on RMA!

Honestly if I do get my board back in working order I will likely never have 100% confidence in it like my previous Gigabyte boards, because of some manufacturing glitch that will always be lurking over waiting to make my life hell. lol.

Did you try the MemOk button ?


Ok this is dumb but make sure you are pushing the DIMMs all the way down until they click. They can take a surprising amount of force to get in all the way.

Take off and reconnect all connections.

Remount cooler paying close attention that your not getting any uneven or excessive pressure on the CPU.

Check socket for bent pins.

RMA

For the hijacker: Unfortunately a percentage of DOA computer componets is a gamble you take building a custom computer yourself. Luckily the percentages have dropped drastically in recent years. It is still part of the process and is part of what you pay for when you pay someone else to build a computer. This is something that should be understood before endeavoring to build a custom. If you think your odds will be better by selling your fresh from RMA board and buying a different brand then go ahead and take your chances. But understand that it is a gamble either way.

CMOS button did nothing. RMA'ed, exchanged for a new board. Worked on startup, no need to reset cmos, memok button, etc. Thankfully the first was just a defective motherboard.

Only problem now is everytime I start up I hear a beep, but everything starts up fine.

I was hoping there was some setting or something that would get rid of the short beep on startup. From the mainual it says there is a short beep if:

1- No Keyboard (I have USB Keyboard)
2- VGA Detected (Not sure what this means, I just have HDMI cable)
3- Quick Boot Disabled (I have enabled it)

The beep you hear is the board posting. Most boards do it, my x58 sli le does it.

I have the same problem except of the fact that my mobo worked 5 months without any problems until today. I will try to reset BIOS settings by taking out CMOS battery.

No effect at all, tried everything at this moment going to replace mobo.
