HelloAll, just received my Framework 13” DIY, i have added a Crucial DDR5-5600 32GB x 2 and. WD SN850x nvme, after powering up, i only get a blank screen. I have tried everything they recommended but nothing still. Anyone else experience something similar?
Keep in mind RAM training can take a minute or two where you see no screen indicator.
However if it never comes on, you might want to check the keyboard/input tray ribbon connector. Especially the end connected to the keyboard tray. People have had their’s short out. Maybe try an external monitor to see if the system is booting up at all. There have definitely been some apparent QA issues in recent batches.
Yes i have tried a single DIMM in each of the slot but nothing changes. I have tried two different brands of RAM( kingston and crucial) and nothing works. Pretty frustrating when you buy a laptop throw in the ram and nvme and doesnt work. Currently after all the test Framework Support had me carried, with photos and videos submitted. They are going to replace my laptop. This really should not happen when its brand new out of the box. I hope the replacement will not have these issues.
I’m also in the same spot.
I bought a pack of crucial RAM DDR5-5200 64GB (2x32GB) and get no post, no display, and fan spins. I tried removing 1 stick of RAM, swapped, reseating.
After finding this thread last night, I over nighted a set of g.skill DDR5-5600 64GB (2x32GB) RAM. I received them a couple of hours ago and installed them.
On boot, I got some backlight and after about 1 minute I got post, then booted to OS.
It’s running great. I’m pretty happy with it. I was running Manjaro dual booted with Windows 10, then setup Arch, and currently running NixOS. Issues I’ve run into have been:
In Manjaro random white screen flickering with starting a game of taking the laptop out of sleep. I have to logout and sometimes reboot to get rid of the flickering. But that’s probably from the OS being originally used on other laptops that had Intel or Nvidia GPUs. So I disregarded that issue and just moved on.
In NixOS when I close the laptop and open it back up later, I’ll find that it’s booting up from POST. That might be related to the luks setup and I just need do some more tweaking.
