X570 Aorus Pro cold boot hangs on dram led

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

My system:

Motherboard: X570 Aorus Pro
CPU: Ryzen 7 3700X
Try #1 Memory: Crucial Ballistic 3200C16 2x8GB
Try #2 Memory: Corsair 3000C16 2x4GB
PSU: Corsair RMx750
GPU: Asus 970 Strix

 

Problem:

Cold booting the system after I return from work results in the system getting stuck during POST and displaying a red DRAM led with ocassionally lightning up the CPU led.
Waiting for several minutes does not do anything.

Solution seems to be force shutdown and try again. I sometimes have to try up to 10 times to get through.

When I finally get through, the bios has been reset.
Manually resetting the bios does not change anything in this cycle.

Booting from sleep has same issues.

 

What I've tried:

I rma'd my first memory kit and borrowed the second memory kit. Issues persisted.

I ran optimized defaults with only selecting XMP.
I ran optimized defaults with selecting XMP and manually setting voltage and dram multiplier.
I ran DRAM calculator preset.
I ran optimized defaults with nothing touched at all.

I updated the bios from F3 to F4f to F4h.

 

What's odd:

System is rock stable and issueless once in Windows. I've stressed and gamed for hours without any problem.

Seems pretty odd.. 

 

May I assume you were using Ryzen 1000 / 2000 series previously on this setup?

 

If so, it may be possible that the CPU's FSB could have some issues.. Do you have any friends were you may be able to test your CPU on their hardware? Just to limit down any possibilities of course!

It's a completely new build. My previous build is very outdated.

 

I only know people with budget builds with 2200g and 2600 with motherboards that haven't been updated for Ryzen 3000. It's something that I could try. I would not suspect the CPU myself to be honest.

 

I'm curious why you would think that would be the first to test ?

least reliable pc part is mobo tbh, I would swap that to test

Someone with a similar issue with his Aorus Ultra told me to set all XMP settings manually and turn XMP off. Set the DRAM voltage and DRAM multiplier.

 

Unfortunately it's still giving me problems.

Hi, did you fix this problem?  I have the same problem though i never made it to windows install. I only got into bios (f4i) 3 times in several hours

I did not. I'm currently not cold booting anymore. If I only let it go to sleep, I have 0 issues. I'll let bioses mature and then I'll see what I'll do. RMA and wait or swap to other vendor.

I just got the Aorus Master today, did a Q-Flash to F5i and went smooth, installed windows 10 pro, started setting up and isntslling apps etc. Did a restart and nothing...keeps jumping around between the 2 BIOS and DRAM light is on all the time. Only dips to CPU each time it cycles to the other BIOS but set to single it does its short cycle and stops on 4d just stands there...

 

I'm so peeved since I waited how long for this board. I will try another psu and ram to test but I'm fairly sure the board just bit it. Never overcooked nothing, just stock board setting and now does even post...no clue why and what happened.

Dear friend,

Same proble here

CPU Ryzen 5 3600

MB  Aorus PRo X570

Ram Gskill Ripjaws 3200 2x8GB F4 3200C 16D 16GVKB (100% compatible and listed on manufacturers site)

The only solution to cold boot it is to press the little  qflashpus key.... so frustrating!

Set voltage to 1,4v and set speed and timings manually per spec of kit. 

 

See if that helps.

Sorry to jump your thread here but was hoping someone had found a solution to this. I have dram light (alternative with CPU briefly) on Aorus M board. Pulled all of the components one at a time, turned out that it wasn't a ram issue, it was the SN500 WD blue NVMe drive causing the issue. That being said, the drive should be working in the board because I have checked and it is compatible. Any ideas?
