My friend has just started his first build today. Everything was going well until he tried to turn it on. . . The fans work fine, but for some reason there is a red light under the GPU and the side saying "CPU and DRAM." It also shows nothing on the monitor and doesn't light up his keyboard and mouse. We tried unplugging the 24 pin and the 8 pin and reseating the ram/placing one stick on each slot. Those did not work, and we have no idea how to fix this. His motherboard is the B550 Phantom 4 Gaming, the memory is Corsair Vengaence 3600 mhz, and the CPU is the ryzen 3600. I will provide other specifications and pictures if needed. Thanks for the assistance!

We figured it out! Basically, we tried every ram slot with one stick, taking out the cmos battery and waiting three seconds then putting the battery back in after each stick. Eventually, the first slot worked on one of the ram sticks, and the PC was able to post. We then shut down the pc and put another ram stick for duel channel, and both ram sticks were able to work! For anyone with this problem, make sure you seat the ram and hear that click on both sides with no spaces underneath. If the fans are working and these lights are on, it's not a problem with any of your parts. Just keep troubleshooting!!
