Hello, I recently built my PC back in June.
It worked great up until now. Couple of days ago I was playing my games and shut it down once I was done. Next day I tried to boot it up and the fans went on and the light on my gpu and motherboard were on but no display, mouse, or keyboard connection. The motherboard I had during this incident did not have a QLED lights to notify me what was wrong. Specs at the time are as follows:

Motherboard: ASUS Prime X570-P Ryzen 3 AM4 with PCIe Gen4, Dual M.2 HDMI, SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.2 Gen 2 ATX

RAM: G.SKILL Aegis 8GB 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3200 (x2)

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 6-Core, 12-Thread Unlocked Desktop Processor

GPU: SAPPHIRE PULSE Radeon RX 5600 XT DirectX 12 11296-01-20G 6GB 192-Bit GDDR6 PCI Express 4.0 ATX Video Card

PSU: CORSAIR - CX-M Series 650W ATX12V 2.4/EPS12V 2.92 80 Plus Bronze Modular Power Supply

Display: ASUS VG245H Black 24" 1ms (GTG) Widescreen

After this happened, I looked around and saw that a faulty motherboard could be an issue so I bought a new one and installed it a few days later. This one came with the QLED lights and that's when I saw that it was a DRAM error. The new motherboard is ASUS AM4 TUF GAMING X570-Plus ATX Motherboard with PCIe 4.0, Dual M.2, 12+2 with Dr. MOS Power Stage, HDMI, DP, SATA 6Gb/s, USB 3.2 Gen 2 and Aura Sync RGB Lighting.

So I looked online how to solve this error, this is where I am lost. I did all the RAM solutions, removed them and tried one by one, bought new RAM, checked for dirt or damages, nothing. Other threads suggest PSU so I did that as well, bought a new one and nothing. I know my CPU is okay, none of the pins are bent or broken. I took out all the cables and connection and nothing out of the ordinary. Tried booting without HDD or SSD and nothing. I also tried to rest the CMOS both with the two pins and removing the motherboard battery. I am truly lost at what to do now other than my gpu. I am going to a friend's to see if it's a gpu issue by testing an older gpu on my pc. But for now that DRAM light stays on and blinking whenever I turn on my pc.
If anyone has any other ideas, please let me know. I'd truly appreciate it.

Was the computer unplugged when you cleared the CMOS?
When you tried booting with 1 stick of RAM, was it located in slot DIMM_A2?
Have you tried booting with no drives connected to see if you can get into the BIOS?
Yes the computer was unplugged when I cleared it. I did the RAM stick one at a time in both A2 and B2. And yes I have tried to boot with no drives. Still the same outcome. I'm just really confused about the whole thing.
