Need some tips/help/suggestions

PC has some issues after i moved to a new house 😭. Gpu was removed during transport and the pc was boxed perfectly.

First boot did not post nor provide pwr to any ports on the MB.(the gpu/fans had pwr)

Checked ALL connection, cpu cooler + re seated and reinstalled, CMOS reset, nothing.

EZ debug flashing between dram and cpu not stopping on either.

Started taking ram out, and it booted but only on one channel. 1|2 works, 3|4 don't. Tested all ram sticks working.

Now I just put one more stick in (1|2|3 works |4 dosent) i just pushed it arround and put pressure on the MB a bit and it works fine now.

But the 4th one still don't, it's not the ram stick, I just don't understand is the port actually dead or what. I don't really know exactly what to look for here tbh.
