Default Yay my first computer build!!! andit's not working.

hey everybody, I've gotten my first problem with my computer.
heres my problem: http://www.msicomputer.com/support/sup_tshoot.asp#1_4 go there and down to where the " What are the LED definitions of D-Bracket?" part is and then I have the lights showing up as: " Memory Detection Test
- Testing onboard memory size. The D-LED will hang if the memory module is damaged or not installed properly"

What do I do!?!?!?


Chris

Call your memory manufacturer.

you might have gotten the wrong type of memory that might not be compatible with your motherboard or the memory is not good

I'm not sure what type of memory you got but make sure that the memory is seated correctly and in the appropriate slot.

Yeah, try another slot if you haven't already. Some motherboards are finnicky like that. Otherwise, it sounds like bad/incompatible memory.

Yeah I did exactly what the manual for the mother board said for putting in ram, then I tried ever other possible combination and it still didn't work. So I'm thinking it's the ram, so I'm taking it into the computer shop today get new ram make sure it works there... and then bring it home and setup the rest of my computer.
