My z170e mobo stopped working no power light on and replaced it with a z390a ASU’s motherboard and it won’t boot past the dram test even though a bought compatible ram and have tried everything else I have seen suggested on this forum. Should I buy a replacement z170e and send the 390 back or would you suggest a different mobo.

As above. Any cpu that worked on the Z170 will not work on a Z390. Although they use the same socket only 6th & 7th generation work on 100 & 200 chipsets and 8th & 9th generation on 300 chipsets. They are not interchangeable.
