Okay, so recently I ordered the ASUS P8Z68-V LX Motherboard and installed it into my case. Everything fits, everything's fine. I have gone through the manual and everything is plugged in properly, no problems there. However, when I turn the PC on, the system fan spins, the PSU fan spins, and my GPU fan spins. The processor fan twitches a tiny bit and the DRAM LED MEM OK thing is flashing red. It flashes a couple times, then the system automatically reboots itself and does it again.
If I take the installed RAM out, all of the fans spin properly and the system boots up, however there is no display on the monitor because there is no RAM.
I have looked this up, checked many different sites and tried many different solutions. I will go through the things that I have already tried :
Plugging in a RAM stick from my working PC
Doing that jumper thing (clear RTC RAM CLRTC) or whatever
I have tried removing the battery for minutes at a time and trying again
I have tried unplugging the computer, removing the battery, and doing the jumper thing and leaving it that way for 10 minutes
I have tried letting the computer run, because the manual says something about trying different failsafes. I have let it run for a good 10 minutes until I realized nothing was changing.
I can't figure out the problem. I will list what I have in the PC :
only thing I can say is that you got a dead RAM... you should RMA it if possible and also you should get 2x4GB ram instead a single 1x8GB ram(IF your not planning to upgrade)...
I actually only have 1 stick of a 4GB RAM. And I guess I could try ordering a new RAM stick at some point, but I have tried the working RAM out of this computer that i'm using now and it did the same thing.
