P8P67 Red Light Woes

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
YO OCN! So if you can believe it, I've put my SB build off for this long. I'd consider myself fairly knowledgeable about computers but I keep running into this problem. This is what I've done: Kept my SSD and HDD, and replaced everything else. I have these Ripjaws for my ram. Everytime the computer tries to boot to my SSD, I get a red ram light, and my computer quickly blue screens and restarts. I've tried single and dual channel, and resetting the CMOS with a jumper. Thats what REALLY troubles me. From what research I've done, the CMOS reset has fixed this issue for 99.99% of users. The jumper switch does indeed reset the CMOS, but I still have this red light issue. Also, I don't know how my ram is the problem, it said on the package "built for sandy bridge." The ram settings and voltages weren't initially correct, so I filled those in accordingly. I could really use some help here OCN.

Can't tell from your OP but have you tried a different set of working RAM?

Negative, but according to Newegg feedback and just the packaging in general, it works with my 2600k and motherboard.

When I got my SB stuff, I had the same exact problem.

RAM was dead. I'm afraid that's what happened to you.

Now my RAM is OK, and my mobo died. No replacement until the revised boards come out :/ Just my luck, huh?

Hmm... But the ram shows up in the bios as 4096MB and all... Can it still be dead? Starting to get POed and worried about this -_-.

Remove and reseat the ram. Try the other 2 slots. If you can eliminate the board as a problem that is a good start.

Bad RAM happens. Run memtest86+ on it for a while and look for errors.

Check out this thread. ya I know it's huge back there is a lot of info on your board and the issue that can crop up. http://www.overclock.net/intel-mothe...d-drivers.html

I would try like tito said, boot in different RAM slots. Try booting with one stick. When you follow the CMOS clearing , remove the battery also. Then replace battery and fire the pc up. Also try hitting the MEMOK button which is located right around the RAM slots. Try booting the RAM from the BIOS a 1333MHZ. For some reason a lot of the SB boards boot RAM at these settings. It did for me, I just had to go back later and change it manually.

If all else fails, RMA the RAM.

Ok, TY, running memtest now. Do you think it's blue screening because my SSD doesn't recognize the motherboard/CPU? Or is it 100% the ram because the light is flashing?

Passed through memtest.... So now what? Do I go buy a stick of ram on the motherboard's recommended list? I've really exhausted all options. Whenever I try to boot to my SSD I get a blue screen and one red flash on the motherboard's ram led.
