Only 3 of my Diagnostic leds are up.. :S but not the fourth. Not booti

Recommended Posts

Hey folks.

i recently bought a Venus ( Woot :D Denmark +1 :P )

And i made the whole system, but something tells me that im doing something wrong

My friend bought the Expert Version ( almost the same ) and he cant light up the last

LED either, so neither of us can boot up our computer, and we dont get any signals on our Screens...


So, whats wrong !? i might be able to find some pictures of it..


The LED Desp is following


And yes, it DOES start with nr 2 :S ? :D

0. System Boot-up

2. VGA Detected

3. DRAM Detected

4. CPU Detected

5. System Start-up


So, long story short.


Need to flash up the last led, so my system can boot ...

Black screen of death :D:P

Are you following the build guide here on forum:http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showpost.p...04&postcount=49

Also Here is the way to read the Diagnostic LEDs.


4 LEDs on = Power applied, checking CPU

3 LEDs on = CPU has been detected OK, checking RAM

2 LEDs on = RAM has been detected OK, checking VGA

1 LED on = VGA has been detected OK, entering BIOS

0 LEDs on = System has booted to the Operating System.


As long as you are in the BIOS including running memtest from the BIOS option, there will be one LED on.


Example: If you are getting 3 LEDs on, it means the rig is having trouble detecting the RAM.


The lower(PCI) Amber LED is the 5VSB indicator. The upper Amber LED is the RAM voltage indicator. Once the rig has started and been shut down the RAM LED will go out until the PSU is power cycled

Both orange slots need to be populated.

If you can get into BIOS run Memtest on both sticks.

Are all 3 power connections used?

24 pin

8 pin

FDD (near PCIe slots).
