Question No display but pc is running ?


Jul 17, 2017
Put my new pc together and it seems to turn on and everything but i get no display whatsoever, i get an orange light and it says DRAM besides it.
Ive tried making sure my cables are all in place and slotted in but still no progress. Tried slotting in 1 ram and see if it displays something besides DRAM but its the same.

cpu: ryzen 7 5800x
gpu: gigabyte asus RTX 2060 geforce
mobo: Rog Strix b550-f gaming
memory: vengeance LPX DDR4 4x8gb 3200mhz
psu: corsair RM850 gold


Try single stick in 2nd slot from cpu. Make sure ram is being fully seated and properly clipped both sides by dimm slot latches.

Motherboard from manufacturer should be recent enough for bios to support 5xxx gen, not sure if dram light would be lit if not. But bios flashback is something to try i guess. More info on it in manual page 2.12.

Other things that can affect dram can be an overtight cpu cooler, if it's a screw down design. And then there's the dreaded bent cpu pin, fingers crossed it's not that but may have to check if all else fails.
