Thread: GA-EX58-UD5 Doesn't boot, LED error C1 & b2

    LSDMEASAP and others,

    I just wanted to update you on my progress. I finally received the new mobo from NewEgg (I'm a new customer, but I'm very pleased with their service and RMA turnaround time). Unfortunately, the new board still didn't POST. But the good news is that the error was different. It appears to be a memory error. I've been using just one channel for most of my tests, so I have three different sticks to use, and I don't believe that all three were faulty. So I ordered some different RAM (OCZ3G1600LV6GK OCZ Gold 6GB Kit), and it just arrived today. Of course I had my system ready to go upon arrival, so I plugged it in and it worked. It POSTed just fine, then I was up and running (with just one channel), but it appears that the problem is definitely the memory.

    I've used Crucial before, and never had any problems. I think it's just the interaction with this Gigabyte mobo. If anything new arises, I'll let you know. Thanks again for all your help. (And I plan on holding on to the Crucial memory because I'm sure I'll use it in the future.)

    I have a theory I will soon be testing, maybe you can try it as well now that you have a new board. Use one of your other sticks to go into the BIOS and manually set the ram voltage to 1.54-1.58/1.6 and then save and shut down and put in the crucial (if you still have it) and see if it then will work for you.

    *EDIT*

    Ya, you are correct Newegg Rocks! There RMA and Customer service is superb.

    Tip:
    Always Call in on RMA's as well, you often will get return shipping labels, and possibly other services like cross shipping if needed.

    That is no help? Can you post your specs and your issues? You do know you cannot start the board without memory installed right? Please insert your memory into the white slots (1/3/5)

    And guys one more think,be sure that your memory contact is clean.If you have 3 or 4 of 240-pin dirty,won't POST or instability issue.

    They better be clean you are right!

    Dirty New Triple Channel ram and I would be upset for sure!

    J/K, Sounded funny for sure though. But I have seen you comment that a few times, and you are for sure correct!
