New PC Build: CPU and Boot Device LED stay red

So I have an Asus Z-170A motherboard and upon booting it up, there are a couple of problems. First,the DRAM LED turns red and then off, followed by the same action by the VGA LED. After a couple of beeps, both the BOOT DEVICE and CPU LED turn red and stay red. I've tried reseating the RAM, the CPU, and the graphics card but nothing seems to change. Thank you for your help.
