I recently received a hand-me-down GPU from a friend of mine. I went to replace one of my old cards with it and can no longer reach the bios screen. The DRAM light on the mobo is stuck on when I boot the computer. I did not change anything about my RAM setup when replacing the GPU.

My specs:
PW/S: Corsair HX1050
Mobo: ASUS Z390-A
CPU: i9 -9900k 300 Series
Cooler: Corsair H100i
RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2x8GB) (Model #: CMK16GX4M2B3200C16 )
GPU0 (old/to be replaced): GTX 1050ti
GPU1: GTX 960

GPU0 (new card received/attempted to install): Radeon AXRX 580

I replaced the 1050ti with the 580 and the computer wouldn't display. After doing some research I saw that I did not follow the proper procedure by resetting the CMOS.

I reset the CMOS and tried again to no avail. At this point I removed both GPUs, reset the CMOS, and attempted to get it running with the integrated graphics. Still no display.

I noticed the DRAM light was on so I checked my RAM config, saw no problem, and tried to run it with just one card at a time. I tried both cards separately, no dice. I ordered new RAM (same model) and just attempted to use one of the new ones. (Resetting CMOS every time) It still is not working. I am not sure if the DRAM light is a false flag or not but I cannot seem to find a solution.

Any thoughts?

Additional Specs:
1 2.5in SSD
Sound Blaster Fatality Sound Card
Firewire PCIe card
2 disk drives

If there is any additional information I can provide please let me know.
