No display on new build/ "No memory installed" error code

I recently finished my second build. I powered up and everything seems to be running fine. Motherboard, GPU, and fans are all receiving power. However, I am not getting any display and my mobo is throwing q-code 55 (no memory installed). However, I have checked and checked the RAM, re-installed, tried different configurations...nothing seems to work. I tried clearing the CMOS, tried updateing the bios, tried the "mem ok" function which is supposed to configure the ram to the mobo. Nothing seems to work, what do you think the issue is?

MOBO: Asus MAXIMUS VI FORMULA ATX LGA1150 Motherboard

CPU: Intel Core i7-4770K 3.5GHz Quad- Core Processor

Memory: G.Skill
F3-1600C7D-16GTX

  1. If you have another 1600 motherboard, try installing your RAM modules in that board. That'll tell if you have gotten faulty modules.

    Also, are you sure the RAM on the mobo is the problem? The RAM on the card may also be faulty. What happens if you try another card in there?
  2. Also, another guy with the same problem hadn't seated his RAM properly. Have you?
  3. Agree with cst1992
    have you tried single stick configuration(use one DIMM) in different slot? And try to boot without your graphics card inserted to your slot.
  4. I have tried booting with single stick and basically every other configuration. I will try without the graphics card. Sadly I go to college and I wont be back home until tomorrow afternoon.
  5. This is not a live chat -- take your time, we're in no hurry.
  6. not sure how relevant this is, but your mobo is NOT on the QVL list of those memory chips:

    If that's the problem, he should check if DRAM_LED near the MemOK! button lights continuously? If so, then press the MemOK! button until the MEMOK_LED memory compatibility tuning for successful boot.

    The DRAM_LED by the Mem OK button is not doing anything, however, the DRAM_LED by the main power cord (and the SATA ports) is lighting up. When I try the Mem OK function the led beside it flashes for a minute or so and then go out but it doesn't seem to fix anything.

    Also, I did in fact try booting w/o the graphics card before I left this morning...didn't make a difference. Sure wish I could figure this out.

    Also, as far as a compatibility issue, this RAM was on a list of compatible ram for this mobo, however I might have to try something else...anyone know where to get cheap ram for testing purposes?
  9. So I'm begging to think that maybe the ram just isn't compatible with this mobo.

    Here are the memory requirements for my mobo
    3100(O.C.)/3000(O.C.)/2933(O.C.)/2800(O.C.)/2666(O.C.)/2600(O.C.)/2500(O.C.)/2400(O.C.)/2200(O.C.)/2133(O.C.)/2000(O.C.)/1866(O.C.)/1800(O.C.)/1600/1333 MHz Non-ECC, Un-buffered Memory

    I'm not sure if my ram is Non-ECC Un-buffered (I don't even know what that means)

    Also, as previously stated, this mobo is not listed on the Gskill (RAM) website.

    However, while I was generating the component list on PC Part Picker.com it was listed as compatible. I think they might have that wrong. Should I just send it back? Also, I don't know how to tell is the Memory is unbuffered or Non ECC.
  10. I don't know about Unbuffered, but all(correct me if I'm wrong) memory modules for PC's are Non-ECC. The ECC models(which have error correction) are very expensive.
    You have a non ecc, unbuffered RAM. That is normal; it's the most common.

    Use the Internet, that's what it's there for:

    just check if your situation is matching this:

  12. ****SOLUTION: This motherboard model has issues with the A slots for RAM.
    ONLY use the B slots. Worked right away!
