I just got a new Asus Z77 motherboard and Corsair Vengeance 1600 RAM (2x8GB). In case it is helpful, the CPU is an Intel i5-2500K Sandy Bridge. I put everything together last night and it fails POST. The DRAM LED on the motherboard goes solid red and sometimes I get the beeps indicating that no memory was detected, but sometimes I don't. I tried reseating the RAM with no luck. I also tried the MemOK switch on the board which let me get into the BIOS setup once, but I couldn't navigate anywhere in it and I haven't been able to get back into there since. Anyone have any ideas?
Are you sure you have correct type of memory fitted?
