What debug led shows when you can't boot?
Have you tried to boot with 1 memory stick only?
Can you list detailed system specs too?

I alr call technician they said mobo faulty for sure but the seller doesn't take responsible for the faulty mobo. They just ignored me.

First try installing 1 memory stick in the A2 memory slot of the motherboard,assuming you have 2 sticks. You will have to push down very hard until there's a click sound. When you boot, did you hear a loud POST beep? I did not hear anything, so initially I thought my MSI (B450M PRO-VDH MAX) board was faulty. Once I inserted 2 sticks in the A2 and B2 slots correctly, I was able to boot to BIOS screen. Inside this so-called ClickBIOS screen, the Boot menu item shows that POST is disabled by default. You will have to enable POST in order to be able to hear the beep. By the way, you also need to have the tiny PC speaker connected to the motherboard in order to hear the POST beep.

How the story ended? I heard that there is sometimes a compatibility problem with AMD graphics cards or RAM.
I bought same MoBo, CPU but nVidia 2060Super and 2xDDR Royal Silver 3600CL16.
All works fine but I can't make update BIOS via Dragon Center. I took out the battery and it was only this that helped get the old BIOS back.
