    Default 790i post error C1

    Alright so for some reason, whenever I turn my computer on I occasionally get a prolonged beep and error c1, now normally from what I have read on other issues that people have had on this is that it continues to do that and wont let it post. The weird thing with mine is that after it does this, the mobo reboots and posts perfectly fine. Is there any reason why its doing that?

    C1 Base Memory Detect Error

    How many sticks of RAM do you have? Tried moving/re-seating them? Can they MemTest ok? Is a BIOS update available?

    Good luck!

    I have all four DIMM slots taken up, just did a mem test, 3 hours later, came back no errors. I checked for the latest BIOS update, the only one that follows after the version i have is just for improved RAID compatibility. The last thing on the check list is to just replace the CMOS battery, hope it works.
