I own 2 sticks of 2 gb kingston 1333mhz ram. They had been in there doing their job for two and a half years, and then I bought some g.skill ripjaw 2x4 1600 mhz ram. I tried replacing the kingston with the ripjaw, and that didn't work. now when I put it back to it's original state, it does not boot. The MEMOK light is on, but I don't really know what that is. I tried taking out the cpu and putting that back in because that worked for one case I saw on here. Thanks for helping.

That did not work. The red light next to the MEMOK light is on when I boot it, im not too sure what that means.

It should only light up for a second as it tests the memory. Pressing hte button will boot up the PC when it's off and run a memory test on it.

........Of course the purpose of the button is explained in the manual......

There's a jumper on the mobo - check your manual - or simply remove the mobo battery for about 10minutes with the PSU unplugged

I took the battery out and put it back in. I put in my old cpu because the bios at its stock state does not support the fx-8320. I put in my ram and booted it, and I was greeted by 1 long beep followed by 2 short beeps on a repeat. I looked this up in the user manual and found this to mean that I have no ram. Are my slots dead on my mobo?

Did you shut off or unplug power supply when you removed motherboard battery?

Test one module at a time to see if the system can boot.

Thank you
