jimbobaggies Posted December 15, 2007 Posted December 15, 2007 I have the system as in my signature. #1 When I try to start it from cold in the mornings it does not come straight on. The yellow LED is lit on the motherboard. When I press the power on button the case led which is connected to the motherboard lights but nothing happens. If I leave it for a few minutes sometimes it will power on, other times I have to hold the power button in until the LED goes out, and press it again so it comes on, and often have to repeat this several times until the PC starts. #2 Purchased another pair of OCZ (2 x 1GB) PC3200 Platinum Series EL-DDR [2-3-2-5], the same as I already have. My current memory resides in the orange DIMMs and always runs fine. Put new memory in yellow DIMMs, system wont boot, BIOS screen goes funny. When it made it past BIOS screen, it recognised only 3 odd GB, and reboots straight after POST. I have tested both sets individually using MEMTEST, and they are fine, but I tried using my existing memory on it's own in the yellow DIMMs and the system wont boot and goes funny. So I am now thinking that both problems could be motherboard related. I have never used the yellow DIMM slots, but that problem could be down to dust or something in the slots, I will check this tomorrow. Thanks in advance for any help.
