I have a ryzen 5700g so I doubt that. it wasn't a issue before I installed the new ram either. I did some researching and found out that if the vegnance pro is lighting up red it's indicating it's in update mode. for either a icue software update or a driver update. And I found out that if you force update in icue and ask corsair support for a D flash file it solves the issue. So it's no longer stuck in update mode and isn't lighting up red. Tho that did solve THAT issue I must clarify. I did have problems even booting and the motherboard ram and cpu light did signal and the pc didnt boot long before the red LEDs and update driver issue, and that is what even started this forum topic. But the issue I had first with it not booting is usually totally unrelated to the "stuck in driver update mode" issue. Which i didn't know was unrelated until yesterday when I fixed the driver update issue. I have run some tests and everything is now running as normal

I have 32gb 3600hz ram i bought today and i enabled xmp and everything was going fine. Until later today when I enabled some setting and I don't know which one that had something about the ram Speed to do with. And i restarded but PC didn't wanna boot. So i removed the cmos battery and that didn't work. I Saw the CPU LAMP lighting Up and One ram stick lighting Up so i tried removing that stick and that didn't work neither. I then tried only 2 sticks and neither did that. PLEASE help

Did you switch off the PSU before removing the CMOS battery and leave it for a few minutes like that?

Router:  Intel Celeron N5105 (pfSense) WiFi: Zyxel NWA210AX (1.44Gbit peak at 160Mhz 2x2 MIMO, ~900Mbit at 80Mhz)

Switches: Netgear MS510TXUP, Netgear MS510TXPP, Netgear GS110EMX
ISPs: Zen Full Fibre 900 (~915Mbit) + Three 5G (~500Mbit average)

Yes. I tried finniky around a bit more with the sticks. And with 2 of them it did boot. But now when I tried plugging in all 4 it isnt booting and One stick is lighting Up red again. I belive it's a faulty stick

Does that particular stick not work on its own?

Frustrating, but all products suffer a small percentage of dead on arrival or early life failures, some poor soul has to be the one to get them.  The drag is if its a matched kit, you'll need to send all sticks back for replacement.

Yeah. I found that out the hard way. Problem is they don't have the same sticks in stock. And the Stores that do has the 2x 16gb or the same 4x 8gb for double the Price.

@Alex Atkin UKI'm so goddam confused.. For some reason today when i tried for a last time to install the ram sticks. I installed the faulty one closest to the cpu since I know that is one of the more stable slots. And it started and works. It still lights up red indicating some issue. but for now it works. so i'm gonna keep a eye open and let this forum stay opened. If i incounter any issues i'll just return it

Could the CPU cooler be installed too tightly?  That's known to cause memory issues (usually on Intel systems, not sure what you have).
