Hey so I my DRAM led light is solid red. I have had the computer for about a year and a half now. THings were running well until randomly the monitor keyboard and mouse wont read and my DRAM led light randomly became solid. The computer turns on and so does the fan. And there is no beep at the startup. Here are my parts

Motherboard: ASUS P8Z77-V LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX
CPU: i7 3770K
RAM: Patriot Gamer 2 Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3-1600
Video Card: EVGA 560 ti
PSU: should be around 700w

Everything was bought separately and put together. I tend to leave my computer on over night. Just letting you know incase. Thanks. I dusted out the computer as well and readjusted my RAMS but still does not work. Does anyone know how to fix it?

with intel mb the newer ones the memory controler built into the cpu. so to rule out bad ram or the controller you have to use one stick of ram and place it in all the slots one at a time and check the cpu seating and power. and look for bent pins if you just built or pulled the cpu.

No codes, but it could be the sleep issue because my computer was running fine, but then i had to go away for like an hour then when i got back this happened. Normally my computer would've been to sleep but not this time. How can i check if its just the sleep mode not recovering?
