My PC won't start until I remove and reinsert my RAM

So my pc won't turn on and sometimes it keeps restartingl like in the video and sometimes the fans just spin without any beep(I know it's that it's not a ram issue it's like it restarts and turn on immediately)but after I remove 1 ram stick and turn it on everything works flawlessly after that I can put the stick that I removed and the pc would still turn on my guess its that it has something to do with my moderboard(gigabyte h81m-s2h)or with the bios, I checked it has something to do with the GPU or with the storage I even tested the ram on another system

Does it matter which stick of RAM you remove to get it to fire up?

No it's just random sometimes I remove the first one sometimes the second one

Do you fully power down the system when you do this?

I had experienced something like this in the past on a DDR2 system. My problem was that I had a pretty heavy OC on my CPU and RAM, and my memory controller was temperamental about training the memory. Going through the procedure you describe would allow my PC to boot.

 

If you power down the system, flip the switch on the PSU, and press the power button a few times to discharge the system, and then power the system back up (basically everything you've been doing except removing a stick of RAM), does this also (temporarily) solve the problem?

 

Also, please list your full system specs.
