Hmmm.. At the same time I had also installed a 2nd graphics card which is a PCI GPU. I took it out when i replaced the memory with my old sticks and it's still doing the same thing.
I have to work 10 hours a day 7 days a week and i can't have this happen right now. Any suggestions on how to fix this?
I thought that since my mobo supports 1600 OC that i need to change the speed, latencies, and voltage to use 1600 ram. Since I didn't, could I have ruined the power supply? Because I THINK the one flashing LED means there is a power problem. But I'm not sure, I can't find something that tells me what the LED light codes mean. The manual doesn't say anything about them, except 1 light means cpu is in 1 phase power mode and 4 lights mean cpu is in 4 phase power mode. I don't know what this means so this doesn't really help me.
Here is the memory I purchased...
I think I might have solved my problem. I found this pdf from msi's website..
According to this information my board only supports up to 2 sticks of 1600 RAM. I put 4 sticks in and now the only thing I can think of is, since i have 1 flashing LED light that I have a power problem
Ok so this seems kind of weird to me but, I plugged another power supply into my board and it started up perfectly fine. I found this quite strange as I've never come across this with RAM before. But all that matters is it works now
Do you guys think it will be safe to put the PCI graphics card in? This new power supply is 380 watts. Will that be enough for 2 graphics cards?
