    Make sure the RAM timing settings in UEFI match exactly those of the RAM physically installed. You may have to go in and manually set them. Also make sure the two sticks of RAM are installed in the correct pair of slots for only 2 sticks.

    The manual for the board shows the slots as
    4 - 2 - 3 - 1. I have had 2 sticks in the 1 and 2 slots the whole time without moving them. Maybe try just 1 in slot #1?

    Or. Would these methods possibly work?
    Method #1:
    1.Shut off the powersupply by pressing the button on the ”PSU” or by removing the power cable.
    2.Press the powerbutton 3-4 times to empty the stored energy in the power supply.
    3.Turn on the powersupply
    4.Press and hold the powerbutton, the system will start the bootup procedure but will shut down after a few second. Release the powerbutton after the system have shut down completely.
    5.Press the powerbutton to start the system.
    6.If this technique was successful the system will boot and you will see the following image.

    Method #2:
    1.Shut your PC down.
    2.Hold the power AND the reset button for about 10 sec, than release.
    3.Backup BIOS should kick in anytime soon now.

    Method #3:
    1.Short out pins 1 and 6 on the main BIOS chip (pin #1 should be marked with a red dot or whatever)
    2.Tell a friend (or a relative) of yours to press the power on button
    3.Remove the ghetto-like jumper you’re holding between pins 1 and 6 as soon as you hear a beep.
    4.Backup BIOS should kick in again and everything will (hopefully) be fine.

    At this point I would leave only what is needed for it to POST connected. Power supply, motherboard, CPU, 1 stick of RAM, video card, keyboard. If it has onboard video, remove any add-in video cards.

    Is this a laptop ? If its a desktop, try using different cables to the hard drive or make sure the cables are connected . You didn't by any chance touch the jumper pins ?

    I don't think I did. Its a desktop by the way. I haven't tried a different CMOS battery yet either

    It's a desktop. I don't think I touched the jumper pins. I'm trying to upload a screenshot of the motherboard to show you there isn't any CMOS pins. I get an error http 500

    I misunderstood you. If you mean the CMOS pins then yes. I reset the CMOS with a flat head screwdriver touching both pins at once for a few seconds.

    No, the jumper pins have nothing to do with the battery .

    I'm confused? First you say there aren't any CMOS pins, they you say you shorted them?

    I think he touched the power pins with a screw driver
