Good news ! :happy:


I tried to power up the computer with the current ram stick and the same problem happened. I replaced the current ram stick it with a friend's one that's known to be working. Tadaa!! The computer powered up normally. I guess we have found the culprit, right??


Thank you very much for your help

While it is not ideal having to replace the Ram at least you have identified the cause of the problem  :thumbsup:


You are welcome btw  :)

Having only one stick of RAM installed, and if fails, no computer, it's safer to have 2x2=4GB kit for 32bit OS, 4X4=8GB kit for 64bit OS.

Stick with RAM from the QVL and you will have no problems, > http://dlcdnet.asus...._report1010.pdf
