Asus Rampage III Extreme Red VGA Light

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hey guys. So I just got a new Asus Rampage III Extreme motherboard. I installed everything, and it all seems to be connected correctly. (Not the first time I have built a computer). When I tired boot up the computer it does not post and I get no VGA signal. So I restarted the computer, and checked as the status light went during the boot order. The only light that goes on and does not go off is the VGA light. I have tried multiple things but am unable to seem to get this light to go off. Has anyone else ever run into this issue? If so what was it that you did to fix this.


EDIT: Found the problem & was able to fix it.

Thanks,

-Andrew

Check your ram, the crosshair IV and rampage alike take a good deal of strength/force to slot them in properly, the ram module should stick no more than 5 millimeters higher than the highest point of the slot, this is of course excluding the heat spreaders, the module is the green board

I am completing a new install and i just installed a new ASUS GTX580. i get 1 long beep and 3 small indicating VGA error which is shown on the board. i then get a single beep which i read as VGA detected.

reseated power connectors, vid card, ram (tested individual sticks).

All fans are spinning including vga. This is all new hardware so a defect is possible but i doubt it. When i turn it on, i do not even see the monitor recognize the hdmi. (tested multiple ports including trying the DHMI mini).

Whatever helped solve your issue would be greatly appreciated.

I forgot. I am using the Rampage 3 Formula mobo

Cheers

That was exactly what was wrong. It wasnt seated all the way, and yeah it took a lot of force, lol. Thanks for the help.

It turned it to be my power cables in the end. i had the 6 pin seated correctly but there was an issue with the 2 pin aux on the 6 + 2. put the 2 pin in before the 6 pin and you are good as gold.

Hi
I have an asus rampage III Mobo which is showing the red vga Q LED and failing to POST, so nothing displaying on monitor.
I've tried everything on this post, the PSU connectors, reconnecting, but the VGA led is still there.

Does this conclude the graphics card is broken? I don't want to have to buy a new guys without knowing it's the problem. What does the VGA led light mean?
Thanks so much for your help!!!!

It means the card isn't being recognized properly. Try the card in a different pcie slot.
