Finally put together my first pc and it powers up there's a but tho. I get the q code 53 which in the manual says it's a problem with the installation of memory or wrong memory speed. I have tried different dimm slots and had no luck do you think my ram sticks are the problem? I'm stuck now trying tdifferent things and I'm so frustrated! Can anyone point me in the right direction?
Incase it matters my build is
Asus z87 pro motherboard (used) I5 4670k Gtx 680 8 gig corsair vengeance 1600mhz
Right, so I have tried inserting each ram stick separately with no luck. I've tried removing the battery and that still hasn't worked, I've removed the cpu to check if the pins are bent and they are fine. I'm so frustrated and don't know what to do, I was so excited about building my first pc and it's been a bit of a nightmare to be honest!
I have tried the bios flash back with no success. The flash back worked but I still get the q code 53 which says: "Memory initialization error. Invalid memory type or incompatible memory speed"
I know this is complete BS as it says in my manual that it supports the ram that I have. I've just bought some more ram so will have to try that but if this doesn't work then I'll have to get another motherboard!
This there anything else I can do that I haven't tried?
