Re: P8Z77-V no POST, BIOS or signals

UPDATE: solved- i tested the RAM one at a time both were ok, then tried both (properly reseating them this time, doh!) and the red DRAM led turned off the POST splashed on screen and the keyboard, mouse and monitor got their signals.

thank you XstollieX and DragonFury for being kind and helpful
