No Boot- Confusing LEDs

Recommended Posts

I was just screwing with my BIOS trying to get my RAM to run faster. It failed to load windows a few times, I changed the settings, got it to load windows, change settings again, no boot.

 

I'm getting 4 leds, then 3 leds, then 2 leds, and quickly after that i have 3 leds with the fourth blinking.

 

Then the fourth one goes out and its 3 leds, then 2 leds and back to 3 w/4th blinking, and it repeats. I'm not sure if this is normal or not.

 

I tried booting with one stick in DIMM 2. Same result.

 

I assume, from searching for "diagnostic leds" and reading a few posts there, that I will have to clear CMOS and i've read the guide by ExRoadie. Only question I have about that is, the power at my house just flickered and i was wondering if there would be any danger if that happened again while I was clearing CMOS. Just asking because I heard thats a problem when flashing BIOS.

 

As always thanks alot for your help.

Well, you're supposed to clear the CMOS with no power going to the PSU, so I would say that the power issues won't affect it :P.
