So, after much troubleshooting, I found that my first slot of ram is causing start up issues. Overall, I could call it a mobo issue. But is there any troubleshooting I could do to actually fix it or is buying a mobo the only way? Basically, as long as something is plugged into the first slot, my "DRAM" light stays solid and nothing will ever come on screen.
Here's my other thread where there was a ton more information.
