I just recently bought the parts needed for my PC and assembled them, but upon system power-up, the status light, in my motherboard, for my CPU came on. This means that it isn't working properly.

As for installation, I made sure that I properly aligned the arrows and reinstalled it multiple times to see if it was an error. I watched several videos and re-read the guide, and I feel like I've tried everything, but whenever I power-up the system, the CPU light is on.

I have the Aorus Ultra x570 motherboard, and the Ryzen 7 3700x CPU. Is there anything else I can try to fix it?

full system spec? include brand and model of the psu
Ryzen 7 3700x CPU
Gigabyte x570 Aorus Ultra motherboard
G.Skill Trident Z Royal 32gb (2x16)
Seagate Ironwolf 4 TB
WD SN850 NVME SSD
GeForce RTX 2080 Founders Edition graphics card
Corsair 4000D Airflow ATX midtower case
Fractal Design Ion+ 2 Platinum 660 W 80+ PSU
Microsoft Windows 10

Or my list on pcpartpicker.com

The RAM hasn't arrived yet and I haven't installed Windows yet, I was just testing to make sure that everything else ran properly when I powered up the system.

I'll uninstall the CPU and check for any damage, just in case.

edit: I pulled it out, and no pins seem to be bent, missing, or damaged.

Even if you see some other signs, it still wouldn't mean anything.
RAM came, RAM is installed, everything is installed, cool. I still have the "CPU is not working properly sign".
When I try to power on the system, everything works except for the CPU. I have a monitor hooked up too, but it doesn't show any signs of working.
What can I do?
