    Might just check you have the memory in the right slots, some motherboards can be a bit fussy especially if it isn't on the approved list or tried just one stick in each slot?
    Also check that during your cleaning there were no foreign objects left in the memory slots.

    Thank you very much BugMeister! I Appreciate again your time and help. Wonderful resource and I am going through them now.

    Just curious what you think about this, even though my computer worked with these current OCZ triple channel DDR3 1600 for the past 6.5 years. I now realized that I might've made a mistake. My motherboard is stating that it is dual channel, but the interesting thing those memory sticks worked for that amount of time in a dual channel motherboard. I have cleaned out my computer many times over the past years and never had a problem like this. So it could be that I shocked it with the way I cleaned it. Not sure what your thoughts are about that. also triple channel versus dual channel and normally is it OK to use a triple channel on a dual channel motherboard.

    My next question is, if I bought a 8 GB (2 x 4gb) one and I later bought another one of the same kind into the other two slots in the motherboard is that OK? I just don't feel like spending the extra money on a 16 GB one at this time. Also does it have to be the same brand?

    Thank you very much for your help.

    They were in the right slots and I didn't notice any foreign objects in there.

    Let me know if you have any thoughts about anything issues I'm having. Thank you so much again.

    Is this any help? From an online copy of the manual for your mother board. Asus P7P55D EVO User Manual (Page 43 of 128)

    MemOK! switch
    Installing DIMMs that are incompaible with the motherboard may cause system boot
    failure, and the DRAM_LED near the MemOK! switch lights continuously. Press and
    hold the MemOK! switch until the DRAM_LED starts blinking to begin automatic
    memory compatibility tuning for successful boot.
    Refer to section 2.8 Onboard LEDs for the exact location of the DRAM_LED.


    The DRAM_LED also lights when the DIMM is not properly installed. Turn off the
    system and reinstall the DIMM before using the MemOK! function.

    The MemOK! switch does not function under Windows

    During the tuning process, the system loads and tests failsafe memory settings. It
    takes about 30 seconds for the system to test one set of failsafe settings. If the test
    fails, the system reboots and test the next set of failsafe settings. The blinking speed
    of the DRAM_LED increases, indicating different test processes.

    Due to memory tuning requirement, the system automatically reboots when each
    timing set is tested. If the installed DIMMs still fail to boot after the whole tuning
    process, the DRAM_LED lights continuously. Replace the DIMMs with ones
    recommended in the Memory QVL (Qualified Vendors Lists) in this user manual or on
    the ASUS website at Access Denied.

    If you turn off the computer and replace DIMMs during the tuning process, the system
    continues memory tuning after turning on the computer. To stop memory tuning, turn
    off the computer and unplug the power cord for about 510 seconds.

    If your system fail to boot due to BIOS overclocking, press the MemOK! switch to boot
    and load BIOS default settings. A messgae will appear during POST reminding you
    that the BIOS has been restored to its default settings.

    We recommend that you download and update to the latest BIOS version from the
    ASUS website at Access Denied after using the MemOK! function

    Thank you very much clam1952! I tried all combinations I could with the memory and still can't get it to boot. It looks like I'm have to buy new memory.

    What do you think of these choices?

    Hello everyone,

    Just letting you all know that I ordered the Kingston hyper X fury 8 GB kit memory. Once I get it and test it I will let you know the results. Thank you again!

    Hello everyone,

    I received my memory today and my Computer will still not boot and the memory LED is still lit. So it is my motherboard that is the problem and I am going to call Asus on Monday to see about getting a replacement.

    Once I get this new motherboard I'll leave a final post. OK, I appreciate everybody's responses earlier and hope you're having a great weekend.

    Did you by any chance cleaned CPU fan when it was sill connected to CPU fan header and let is spin fast due to air flow?
    It's rare but i have heard that it may generate charge and burn out fan circuit.

    Hi VBJP,

    Thank you very much for the question. Yes I did. I cleaned it and then re-connected to the motherboard. Unfortunately, the LED lights for the memory slot was still on. I did resolve the issue as I will explain in my final post. Thank you again for your help.
