I started this build (my 4th or 5th build) in 2019 and then had heart problems so the MB warranty expired before I got it put together.
When I put it together the blue MB lights come on, not the dual LED on the MB & after a bit start blinking, no fans or HDDs run, so I shut it down each try real quick.
I have tried it with the Ram out, 1 stick in, with the case wiring unhooked except for the power button. nothing changes.
I emailed asrock and got a tech last year but his response was a pic from another type of MB with green & white wires while mine are black & white.
This year they are unresponsive and no longer make this MB.
Other than the blue MB lights blinking nothing happens.
I have the manual & lots of pics & diagrams.
This is what I have:
AsRock Z270 Taichi motherboard 1151 socket
Gigabyte graphics card
DDR4-2666 udimm 16gb x 4 Ram
Intel i3 processor or Intel i5 9400 coffee processor
256gb PCI SSD
Fractal Design Define R5 - Mid Tower Computer Case - ATX
The MB has 2 places for HDD Leds
I'd love any suggestions or questions.
If this MB is toast then I'll have to try to find one compatible with the rest of the build.
