Question Debug light different colors when booting.

May 10, 2023
Just built a new pc, everything seems to work fine because it boots up in windows.
Although there is something I am just a little worried about.
Whenever I start up the debugging leds start to show different colors, its in exact this order:
DRAM LED - Orange for about 3 seconds and turns off
CPU LED - Red for about 3 seconds and turns off
VGA LED - White for a shorter time and turns off
BOOT LED - Yellow/Green until pc is booted up.
And I don't know what it means, I am not sure if it's something I should worry about because my pc just starts up fine.
Here are my specs:
Asus ROG STRIX B650-A Gaming WiFi
AMD Ryzen 7700
2x16 DDR5 5600Mhz
Gigabyte GeForce RTX 4070 WINDFORCE OC 12G
Corsair RM750x Shift 750W PSU


If the system boots to OS GUI, you have nothing to worry about. If the boot process is impeded and you see one of the LED"s hung up, then that would indicate the fault is on a/the component highlighted by the LED, i.e, either CPU, GPU, Ram or no boot device.

You might want to be wary of the issues surrounding Asus motherboard's for the AM5 platform.
