Ok so I have this older intel i5 computer Asus motherboard,intel i5 8 gigs ram and I have this weird thing going on

video on the motherboard just stopped working one day. I I pulled all the parts put them into an old board except for 1 ram chip. Systems boots. I assume Motherboard is bad. I order a new one. Install all parts, does same thing.

I pull one ram chip, systems boots. I test each chip separately they both pass and both boot system separtaly

I try different ram chips. Same thing happens alone they all work together system comes on no video then powers off then back on. So I think ram amount ist supported on new board I check supports that chip x 4 I get new chips test does the same thing. I put different processor in my motherboard same effect. swap motherboards again same effect. Anyone know why all these boards would not boot properly as soon as I add more then one chip? Could it be the power supply? when I put in the other chip could that be to much on the power unit? I have swapped units also with the same effect. At this point Im stuck

Could we have a more detailed part list please? Does the computer continue running (albeit without video) untill you shut it down? Have you tried using different cables and monitors?

It was the power unit. I tried 3 different monitors, 3 different mobos , and 4 different ram configs. every time id put more then 1 ram stick the system would power on no video then restart, no beeps no nothing other then that, its the PS unit is bad or not powerful enough, even though I tried different units they didnt work. They must not have had enough power to push this chip and board + ram
