Red light flashing under the chipset cover

As the title says... I don’t know what this means. At first I thought it was like short circuiting so I moved it to the box and it is still happening. I made sure no metal is in contact and I also used a anti static wristband. What is going on??

You've posted under the wrong forum, this should be under "troubleshooting". What motherboard and CPU are you using? Can you post your parts list?

Were you able to get a successful first POST? (BIOS screen?). Are your RAM sticks installed into A2 and B2 channels? Try using only one RAM stick at a time to see if anything changes. A BIOS update may be required depending on CPU compatibility.

On the first try it just did the same flashing red light and my ram are in the correct spot. And I have tried the one ram only. I don’t know what’s going on....

Is your CPU cooler plugged into CPU fan header or CPU Optional header? You'll find either of those at the top of your mobo between CPU and RAM channels. If your CPU doesn't detect any installed cooler it will protect itself by not turning on.

Have you checked that all power connectors from the power supply to the motherboard are seated correctly?
