Intel DZ68BC

Hello All,

I recently got a new (in box) Intel DZ68BC motherboard, I moved all my pieces over from an older Intel motherboard (as I wanted the extra PCIe slot) and now I cannot get my system to POST at all. When I put power onto the machine and attempt to power it up, I get the 3-BEEP then pause issue, which seems (from the manual) to mean that my Memory is failing? So, I attempted to replace it with working memory (I took it out of the system I'm working on now) and it's still giving me the same error.

Any suggestions of something I can attempt to fix before I have to put my old MB back into my system just so I can get it to work?

Thanks,

David

Hello sir,

I'm not sure where you're getting this information, I was going from the Product Guide on the Intel website.

 

http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/dz68bc/sb/CS-032686.htm Intel® Desktop Board DZ68BC — Product Guide

According to page 15:

Unbuffered, non-registered single- or double-sided DIMMs with a voltage rating of 1.65 V or less

Am I mistaken in this?

In response to your previous message, I will check the the BIOS model when I get home, if I can find it written on the board, as I do do not even get far enough in the boot process.

As well, yes I have tried using just one stick (All four sticks, attempted in each slot)

Thank you,

David

Memory clock speed and voltage (1.5v) are ok. Try removing the CMOS battery and power for 20 minutes.

You may update the BIOS if you have a different working RAM.

Otherwise, ask the memory manufacturer about the density of the memory sticks; they need to match the requirements of the board in the link above.
