OK, the yellow light is stuck on DRAM having a posting issue memory related.

So to start, you want to be sure the 2 memory sticks are in slots A2 and B2 and seated all the way in firmly when you hear the clicks, your in.

 

And resetting the cmos.

Thank you. Would this also be why I’m having a no display port cable error on monitor?

Yes. If the PC doesn't post to display an image the monitor just informs the user there is no input signal. 

Welcome

Hope it fires up for you.

Also, the yellow light is gone. Should it be green? And should there be a sound when you turn on pc? I don’t have any beep. Does the beep come from out of monitor speakers! Thanks

There will be no beep unless you've hooked a speaker up to the motherboard. They do not come soldered on the board anymore. 

 

The Peripheral ports are for the cables that came with the PSU for HDDs or Molex connectors for fans ect. (Extra power)

Ah I think I have found the issue.

 

Core i5-9600 (3.1GHz, 65W, L3:9M, 6C rev.U0) ALL 0805  
Core i5-9600K (3.7GHz, 65W, L3:9M, 8C, rev.R0)  ALL 2203

 

In order to run the 9600 (K) model cpu, the bios needs to be updated to 2203. 

 

That means you would have to purchase an i3 8100 or g4900 processor to upgrade the bios to support the 9600K model processor.

In bios you want to go to boot tab. Find boot over ride select the DVD drive.

When prompted from disk, hit any key to continue. Quickly you only get 5 seconds. 

The start setting up windows!

 

Glad it fired up. I was worried about the bios revision the board was shipped with. Looks like you're all good.

Not sure thats a good question. You'll have to find the manual for the monitor to better under stand how it works.

I only Know processors motherboard Ram and some video card stuff :P

 

Glad I was able to help! Welcome!
