Long time no see DaniWeb =]
Sadly it's a problem with a new system I'm building that brings me back.
To start, the specs I know are probably most important are:
MoBo: ASUS Crosshair IV Formula (AM3 AMD 890FX)
RAM: Crucial Ballistix 2x2GB 240-Pin DDR3 1600
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz AM3
I was just recently finishing building a new desktop and thought all was going perfect, but alas when I attempted to power on, I got one long and two short system beeps that repeated. According to the ASUS manual it means no memory was detected. The POST LED's on the board concur, with a red LED lit next to the DRAM label.
Now, I double-checked on Crucial.com that the memory is compatible with the motherboard and it is, and I double-checked as best I could that the CPU supports the memory. I couldn't find any incompatibilities, so I took out all but one stick and tried it individually in each slot one-by-one, and each time the memory is not recognized.
About the only thing I didn't do was take everything apart and put it all back together again, but at this point I would be willing if there are no other recommendations.
So my main questions are
- What other tests are there, if any, for me to run?
- At what point do I stop running tests and just declare a part bad?
- Which part should be the primary suspect of malfunction?
Thanks in advanced for the help, and let me know if any other specs or info are needed.
