Computer gets stuck in a graphicsless boot loop

Hi, I recently built my first computer using an outdated/modified version of this guide which became this. As soon as I power on my PC, all the fans will spin up and everything will light up, but after about 15 seconds, everything will shut down and the system will restart. There's no output and no beep code given. I know the processor requires discrete graphics, so I plugged the screen into my graphics card, and still no output. Does anyone know what the problem could be?

That looks like a it might be RAM problem. Make sure you have the RAM in DIMM_2 and DIMM_4. That would be the second and 4th slot. You can't just put the RAM in the first and second slot with the last 2 open.

If your RAM is like that then that is garunteed to be the problem.

My ram is in slots 1 and 2, I tried 1 and 3, and that didn't work, so I didn't think to do 2 and 4.

Crap, that wasn't the problem. It still does the same thing.
