I have just built a new computer and am having difficulty in booting (see specs below). The 'DRAM_LED' light on the Motherboard is on continuously, which according to the motherboard manual means that the RAM (DIMM) is not installed properly or the DIMMs are incompatable with the motherboard. I've checked the Qualified Vender list
for the motherboard and my RAM is on the list, so I'm confident it's not a compatability issue.
I've tried re-installing the DIMMs, changing them around etc. I've even tried using just two DIMMs, instead of four in the DIMM B1 and DIMM D1 slots as recommended in the motherboard manual. The slots recommended for four DIMMs are A1, B1, D1 & C1.
Every component or this computer is brand new.
Any ideas what is causing this problem and/or what I can do to fix it?
