    Installed new components, computer starts but no display.

    Installed a second drive (Samsung Evo 860) and a second stick of ram (same as my old one) and now my computer starts but doesn’t display anything on the monitor. Also there is a yellow light on my motherboard (Asus B150M-Plus D3). Not sure if it’s usually there.

    Is it safe to put a mechanical HDD on a caddy with the ASUS K555L?
