i am able to boot only by pressing the mem ok button (twice) on by asus m5a97 evo board, it gives continuous 1 long and 2 short beeps and the dram led on the board is lit.

i have 2x2 gb corsair ddr3 value rams @1333

1. i have tried clearing cmos by jumper as well as removing the battery.
2. tried booting with single stick of ram
3. cleaning the contacts of ram sticks
4. tried different slots
5. have manually entered the ram timings

but everytime i shutdown my pc for say a few hours, the problem reoccurs:cry:

Take out the ram, then re insert it, happens to me every time I clean my pc and remove the ram, asus boards are very sensitive to ram connection.

1. Power your PC off completely.
2. Take out the RAM modules.
3. Reinsert them.
4. Press Memok button for 5 seconds.
5. Start your PC.

Why don't you revert all the BIOS settings to the original values?
already did that by clearing cmos

did that several times and also cleaned the contacts

1. Power your PC off completely.
2. Take out the RAM modules.

Keep pressing the memOk button and switch on your PC till your RAM gets detected and system boots. Then restart again and check.

did so, but the pc powered on by just pushing the mem ok button.
is this normal?

although it booted up fine after some days again the same promblem occurs :(


Yes!!
MemOK button should never be pressed while the motherboard is powered up.
i used to press it with the pc powered on and booted

can this be due to any grounding issues, coz one of my mobo standoffs(brass) is not properly fitted to the chassis

Press memok button in the process I've already mentioned. Your problem will get solved I think.
