DRAM LED on - tried with brand new RAM, no dice

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have an Aorus H370 motherboard, brand new. When powering up, the DRAM LED comes on, stays on, and then after 10-15s the motherboard power cycles.


I tried purchasing brand new RAM, with the same result, so it's not the RAM itself. I've also tried booting with no RAM - same result. I've also tried seating a single RAM card in each slot, with the same result.


Have I missed any steps or should I return the motherboard?

Could be motherboard or the CPU may need to be reseated. If the CPU pins aren't making good contact it can still work but will register memory or other issues. I would reseat the CPU first. What are the full specs of the computer?

Main Desktop: Cpu - I9-9900k @5ghz | Mobo - Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Master | Gpu - Asus ROG STRIX 2080ti OC Ram - G.Skill Trident Z RGB 16GB 3200mhz | Aio - H100i Pro RGB | Psu - Evga 850 G3 | Case - Fractal Design Meshify C White | Storage - Samsung 970 Pro M.2 NVME SSD 1x 1TB 1x 512GB / 1x Seagate Ironwolf Pro 4TB HDD |


TV Streaming PC: Intel Nuc CPU - i7 8th Gen | RAM - 16GB DDR4 2666mhz | Storage - 256GB WD Black M.2 NVME SSD |


Phone: Samsung Galaxy S10+ - Ceramic White 512GB |


If you ask for a Mid Tower case recommend, I will 90% of the time recommend the Fractal Design Meshify C or S2.
