display plugged into GPU or motherboard? it has to be the GPU

My PCs: Desky | Beddie | Miney | Benchie

Things I need help with: (nothing at the moment)

Spoiler

none atm

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

Spoiler

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

Look for some kind of codes as modern mobos usually have some way of telling you what's going on, this one should have an led screen telling you codes. Does it light up? Do the fans spin?

EDIT: actually it should have 4 debug lights near the 24 pin connector (cpu, dram, vga and boot) do they light up?

yeah the display is plugged into the GPU, and the dram light is the one that lights up, ive also tried swapping out ram sticks, sorry didnt mention that

Edit: All the fans also spin up, so everything is getting power right?

yeah sounds like the problem is not the gpu or the gpu then, are you sure the ram stick are functional? Are they supported? did you seat them correctly?

the ram sticks are brand new, ive tried with my old ones aswell which worked before the upgrade, none of them worked, im quite sure that the rams are functional and that i've installed them correctly

I can only suggest you try them one at a time in each slot, reset cmos and see if it always gives you the same error. If this doesnt work it's either not compatible with the motherboard (check compatibility in the manual, memory is weird) or the motherboard might be broken. Best of luck mate

i've tried resetting cmos again, i did not take the battery out the first time, i did this time but still no boot, tried putting the same ram in all 4 slots and with different sticks and no boot, I have no idea what to do next
