Got a mobo not posting so can;t get into BIOS to proceed with build.
Parts: Mobo: Asus Rog Stix x470-I Gaming CPU: Ryzen 7 2700X Cooler: Stock Wraith Prism DRAM: Corsair Vengeance DDR4 3200 16 PSU: Corsair RM 750x
Symptoms: - Just no action on screen at all upon power up. Monitor connected to mobo HDMI port, not GPU. Connections tight and it works with other machines. - mobo has power. All fans work and I have one of two leds that says it's powered. the 2nd led that provides color hints as to what issue may be does not light up at all, so i can't even get info as to what root source might be such as VGA (white), DRAM (yellow), or CPU (red). - RGB works on mobo and Ryzen Wraith Prism - All fans up and running X3 - no audio at power cycle, just silence. no beeps
Steps Taken: - double checked monitor is OK on other machine - double/triple checked pins, nothing bent all good. - cpu plopped right in the socket no issues, lever was down and secured both times. - pulled gpu. for grins i tried to get monitor up on gpu as well same result, nothing. - pulled mobo and did everything all over again, including cleaning CPU and cooler with Alcohol and re-seating - leds and systems connectors ok both times. I get lights on back of mobo for audio - Called Asus. Memory is not listed but if that was issue I should get a yellow light right? They walked me through some things to check like the pins but they had no further suggestions.
If I RMA do I send RAM back as well? I dont have any spares to test if that is the issue.
