I just installed a new Z170 mobo to my PC and I cannot get it to boot. Below is a list of my PC's specs for reference.
-Asus Z170 Pro MOBO
-XFX RX 480 8gb GPU
-Corsair 500w PSU
-(2x8gb) Crucial 2133mhz RAM
Here's a list of things I've tried so far:
1. Reset CMOS by removing the battery from the mobo
2. Remove GPU and hook monitors directly into mobo
3. Ensure that all necessary cables are firmly connected
4. Swap DIMM slots for RAM and try booting with only 1 stick
Oddly enough, after I removed the GPU, I was able to get my PC to post but not boot by unplugging the case fan power cable from the mobo. Could this somehow be the issue? Any help provided is greatly appreciated.
I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
