I have a custom built computer that runs perfectly, aside from some weird restarts when turning it on it runs great. I switched out my old memory and things went bad.

Motherboard: P8P67Pro 3.0 ASUS
PSU: A-Power 850w
GPU: Radeon XFX 6870 2GB
Memory: 8GB DDR3 Patriot

Like I said it works perfectly, its only when I switched RAM sticks did it start doing this.

Here are the combinations I've tried so far:

Alternates [Black][Blue][Black][Blue]
x = Ram Sticks

[x][ ][x][ ]

[ ][x][ ][x]

[x][ ][ ][ ]

[ ][x][ ][ ]

I had lots of trouble withe my P67M-pro and memory also. ASUS didn't initially do a good job on the early BIOS's.

first press the mem ok button
http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Features/MemOK/

see if will boot and at least let you into the bios

second:

put your old memory back in, then D/L and install the latest bios

P8P67 PRO BIOS 3207

1.Improve system stability.
2.Improve memory compatibility.
3.Support new CPUs. Please refer to our website at: http://support.asus.com/cpusupport/cpusupport.aspx?SLan...
* Enable support for Intel Next Gen 22nm Processor E1 stepping MP version CPU.

*Please update Bios twice when update from previous Bios version, then need CLRTC.

I put the old RAM in as well. Still giving me the same issue. Something thats different is that the red light is on in the bottom left hand corner of the RAM sockets that you see in the video is constantly lit up. That hasn't occurred before.

that is weird. take a flashlight and shine it in the ram slots and see if you can see any debris or contacts bent. also you could try clearing the CMOS. procedure should be in the MB manual.
