Has anyone encountered a bad stick of RAM, rather than simply failing post, cause a bootloop on the order of every 3-5 seconds or so? My motherboard has LED POST indicators which should have activated in the case of error, and the manual makes no mention of powercycling automatically on a failed POST. Power Supply is fine, removing the one bad stick fixes the problem and passes memtest86, etc, etc [NT]
Posted as but I can't shake the feeling that whatever knocked out the ram might have damaged the mobo - IL by Inconsequential Lurker, on February 27, 12018 at 16:55:06:
