I bought a new motherboard as my old one kept randomly switching the PC off even though the psu is plenty enough for the system and is only 6 months old. I bought an Asus A320m-k to run my ryzen 5 2600 and I can't get into the bios when I switch on the PC nor does it go into windows which is strange because my ½ functioning asrock a320m-hdv motherboard can at least post and go into the bios albeit for like 30 seconds. Reseating everything on the new asus boards yielded no results. Any suggestions?

When posting a thread of troubleshooting nature, it's customary to include your full system's specs. Please list them like so:
CPU:
Motherboard:
Ram:
SSD/HDD:
GPU:
PSU:
Chassis:

Remove the boot drive from your build and with only one stick of ram, see if it POST's. You should see if you can get a hold of a POST speaker to take note of any warning beeps.

Do elaborate on this...

Okay, my specs are:
AMD Ryzen 5 2600
2x4GB Hyperx Fury DDR4
The dead board is the Asrock A320m-hdv
The new board is the Asus a320m-k
Corsair VS450
Asrock RX 560 2GB
X3 500GB 7200rpm HDD and a 256GB XPG M.2 SSD
Armageddon Nimitz N5 Chassis

When I set up my asus board with just 1 stick of ram, no storage devices and the gpu, it does not post even after clearing the cmos.

The Asrock board that I suspect is defunct, boots into the bios with that combination of parts, but only for a brief moment of time, then the system switches off. If I try switching it on, the gpu fans keep ramping up then stopping. To boot back into the bios briefly again, I must reseat everything and clear the cmos.
