[SOLVED] Why does my motherboard take so long to check RAM?

CPU: Ryzen 9 3900X
Mobo: GIGABYTE B550 Aorus Pro
RAM: 2 x 16GB Corsair Vengeance LPX 3200 MHz CL16

When booting my PC, the EZ Debug light is stuck on "DRAM" for about 5-7 seconds, before it moves onto VGA and then to booting the PC. What is the cause of this? Is this normal?

I've ran several memory checking utilities and my RAM is fine.

Sometimes, it takes only 3 seconds, or less.

Power down, unplug, open the case.

Clean out dust and debris.

Check that all cards, connectors, jumpers, and RAM modules are fully and firmly seated.

Go into BIOS and configure the POST process to be as verbose as possible so you can observe what is going on while the computer is booting up.
