Hi there, I recent built my new PC and having troubles booting it up. The CPU fan, GPU fan & Mobo light is working. Even the splash screen is not coming up and no beep sound. I had gone through a number of troubleshooting with RAM & GPU but not luck. Not sure what is the fault here. Any help is deeply appreciated and thanks in advance.

Below are the specs:

CPU: Ryzen 5 2600
MB: Gigabyte B450M DS3H
GPU: Sapphire Radeon RX 580 8GB DDR5
RAM: 2 X 8GB HyperX Kingston 2666Mhz

Have you checked if the ram is inserted properly?
Yes. RAM can be tricky. Make sure you push down evenly at the same time on both ends of each RAM stick until you see the tops of the clips swivel to a vertical position and you can hear a 'clicking' noise. Be wary that both ends of each RAM stick snap into place.

make and model of the psu?
what connection are you using to connect the monitor to the gpu?
Hi there.

1) PSU: Cooler Master MasterWatt 650W 80 Plus Bronze Semi Modular

2) Monitor Connection: At the monitor end is a VGA connection and at GPU is HDMI. Tried hooking at the HDMI & DVI port on Mobo & GPU and the same issue.
- I'm using a HDMI to VGA adapter and once the computer is turned ON, the monitor is just blank and the power light at the monitor just blinks.

- However, connecting the connection to my laptop works (Laptop: HDMI ; Monitor: VGA)

- Did tried with a DVI to VGA adapter as well. (GPU: DVI ; Monitor: VGA). Same result.

Have you checked if the ram is inserted properly?
Yes, several times actually until i heard the click. Also, tried with single RAM and it was the same.

Did tried to boot it up without the RAM too and it was the same. However, without the RAM, when i pressed on the computer Power button it could not shut down and had to power OFF using the PSU.

Fixing the RAM onto the mobo and turning ON & OFF has no issues after that test.
