Am no stranger to building a PC - did one from scratch about 5 years ago - but recently wanted to upgrade my Asus motherboard and a newer Intel i5 CPU. New Asus Prime Z390-A and new Intel i5-9600KF from Micro Center Rockville with older Nvidia GTX 1050Ti and older G Skill RAM and Samsung SSD in M.2 socket. After install of above into my older Corsair case system would not even powerup - no LEDS on front etc. Took system to Geek Squad 3 times now and although system now powers up but only goes to BIOS and will not boot up....tried downloading to USB all the drivers and firmware for this board from Asus but BIOS gives failure notice trying to boot from the USB. Also BIOS will not open BIOS update using Ethernet Internet connection - says no connection. After 3rd Geek repair system was working - brought home and tried BIOS AI overclocking which produced a 44% overclock with blue screen failures. Also turned off Aura lighting in BIOS. Got stuck in BIOS again - took back to Geeks late yesterday.
Would appreciate suggestions as to what is going on??!!
