I had recently taken out my RAM stick to replace it, but after that I started getting "No DVI signal" on my monitor. Placed original RAM back into its socket and same thing occurs.



Now the CPU debug light on my mobo is constantly lit whenever it's on. The fans/led all turn on as well as my keyboard but it receives no input for caps lock/num lock.



I've tried to cmos my mobo but still have the same issue. I also took my PC to a store to test out different RAM sticks, but was unable to get a signal with their RAM sticks either. All the wires are seated the same, and the CPU looks free of damage with no bent pins so I'm not sure why the CPU debug light is on because I didn't even mess with it when I was taking out the RAM.



I also tried breadboarding my PC but with just the CPU, mobo, and PSU I'm unable to get it to post nor hear a beep when it turns on.



I'm debating on just buying a new mobo at this point but any suggestions is greatly appreciated.

Check the RAM is inserted properly. They should not wobble end to end. There is a notch on the bottom of RAM sticks that is Not in the center, if inserted properly the end clasps should automatically snap close with an audible click.

Maybe you fried the RAM with static electricity while handling it. Return the RAM and get replacement, see if the new ones work.

I assumed that too, but when I took it to a computer store, they tested it with their own RAM sticks and was still unable to get a signal either.

Did you bump the Heat sink while working on the ram? Try taking the heat sink off ,remove the CPU, check for bent pins, reseat CPU, replace thermal paste and replace heat sink. What heat sink do you have? P.S. I cant look at imgur pics where I am at.

I might’ve but I’ve taken out and reseated my CPU 3x And didn’t notice any obvious defects, I tried running it for a few seconds without the heat sink in the case it was the metal from it causing some kind of short but it still wouldn’t post.
