my mobo is an msi. the ram is either mt8jtf25664az-1g4d1 1106 or 2gb 1rx8 pc3-10600u-9-10-a0. i live in hamilton, ontario, canada. shell, mobo, psu and processor are ALL new. the ram is old as well as the graphics card. there is NO sound it is a new mobo so there is only led lights so i get a red and a blue led light that says that the problem is the led 1 socket and lights the problem socket up as well but the wires are PROPERLY placed.

Your other stick, is it Macron again, or some other brand like this? > http://www.devicelog...mhz-1rx8-korea/
Please perform the following as an initial test.
Unplug the PSU, take anti static measures by briefly touching a bare part of the computer case.
Remove the video card.
Disconnect all wiring to the MB (include the HDD_ , except, the 24 pin JPWR1, the 8 pin JPWR2 and the CPU fan plug, connected to CPUFAN header, refer MB manual page #6.
Install only one stick of RAM, (the one marked 2gb 1rx8 pc3-10600u-9-10-a0, into slot #1, (closest to the CPU.)
Please ensure the red switch on the PSU is set to the low value, > switch on the PSU, Press the POWER1 button on the MB.
The PSU and CPU fans should spin up and keep going. Press and hold down the POWER1 for about 4 seconds to turn the system off. > Switch off the PSU.
If the computer just shuts down, Move the stick of RAM to slot #2 and test again. then post back results.

If the computer still shuts down and the DrMos LED stays lit, check that the cooler is securely seated. Look at the back of the MB and you should see four plastic locking pins sticking through the board, they should look like the image on page #13.(right side). If they are not fully engaged, follow the instructions on the left side of the page.
