No post on MSI 990fxa

Hey everyone, I have already gone through all of steps included in this post

And nothing. I can get the system to turn on, such that I have fans and internal lights, but I get no beep codes, and I mean literally none, even when I'm using no ram.

Does this imply that either my processor or motherboard is bad?

If not, what else can I try to get the system up?

    If you look at the motherboard.
    In some cases where the bios chip is on the motherboard there may be a sticker on it detailing the bios firmware revision the motherboard is running.

    Just double check if you can find it, that the bios firmware revision supports the cpu you have fitted to the cpu socket of the motherboard.

    Also check how many watts the cpu you bought requires, and check the motherboard, and what the maximum wattage of cpu it can support.

    This in the case fi you are using a AMD FX cpu of the FX-8 Eight Core 9590 cpu range.
    As the cpu requires the motherboard to be able to provide 200 W of power from the cpu socket Machenero.

    If the FX 9590 cpu is the one you have or any in the 9500 range.
    Then putting the cpu in a socket of the motherboard that can only provide a maximum of 95w or 125w will be why the board does not even produce a single bios beep to say everything checks out ok.

    If your stuck, at least post the cpu you have bought, it`s model number ect and the exact model number of the Msi motherboard you have.
