Motherboard or Ram? Error 53 Q-Code on a ASUS Maximus VI F
Hello, this is my first time building a PC, I have a ASUS Maximus VI Formula motherboard with G.SKILL Sniper 8(2x4GB). When booting up, the motherboard has the Q-Code error 53, and one continuous beep followed by two short beeps for BIOS beeps, the manual says there is no memory detected, and is a Memory initialization error, Invalid memory type or incompatible memory speed. So if you guys could help me with this, that would be great, Thank you!
Make sure the RAM is in right apply alot of pressure when putting them in I mean alot much more then you would think, also check shortstuff no post / no beep forum and go through everything
I was getting this error when my ram wasn't slotted correctly. The board has slots with a vertical sleeve on one side and a latch on the other. So, I would insert the ram, push down on the side with the latch, causing it to *click* into place and the latch to flip up. Nowhere in the instructions or on any forum have I seen this specific mistake. I've seen a few that just say "you're supposed to push down harder".
Anyway, once it latches, you also have to push down on the other side, the one held in the vertical sleeve (no latch). After pushing down, you will hear a click.
This solved the problem for me.
