Question about ASUS P5S800-VM Motherboard
Today we took the ram out to replace it with another but it wasnt compatible, so we put the original ram back in and now all we get is a flashing light on psu, when we disconnect the power supply from the motherboard the psu light stays on, then we try to connect power cable to motherboard and psu light flashes and no power. could this mean in the short amount of time it took to change the ram over, the mb has shorted out? i have tried all the steps on the hp website, but to no avail, any help would be appreciated.
Nahh, ramstick cant short our a MoBo, the pc wont start and it beebs loud but no more than that, but your hands can do that if you had a lot of static electricity on you when you touched the Mobo.
Therefore always touch some metal before geting inside a pc.
Did you try to pull out the battery and put it back on the Mobo?

Tips for a great answer:
the ram might not be compatible i had similiar issues with veritech ram hope it helps
if you're not sure if a module is right for your system, use the Crucial Memory Advisor tool for a list of guaranteed compatible modules. first you will need to select the manufacturer from a drop down list then select your product line from a drop down list then select the model then click find it will take you directly to compatible ram also you will have an option to scan your system
hope it helps
