Display, Mouse & Keyboard not working after upgrading RAM

Hey,
Today i got new Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO (DDR4 2x8GB) to upgrade from my last RAM (2x4GB). After installing the new RAM, my: keyboard, mouse and monitor will not start. I tried putting back the other RAM i used before and i still have the issue.
I’ve tried to remove the mobo battery and placing it back in after a while, but still no results.
Each component in my computer works (i believe) so i’m really stuck on this issue.
I’ve also tried multiple solutions online but none have been successful.

Specs:
Motherboard: Asus B450-Plus
CPU: Ryzen 5 2600
Graphics Card: Nvidia GTX 1070
Hard Drive: Seagate 1TB
RAM: Corsair 2x4GB (trying to upgrade to 2x8GB)

1. If the symptoms started after you recently added more memory, the new module could be faulty. This seems obvious, but any time a problem begins after making a change, first check to see if the change caused the problem.
2. Your computer may produce multiple beeps or a continuous beep when you turn it on. These beeps can indicate many different problems, including being a symptom of bad RAM. Beep codes vary depending on the manufacturer of your BIOS. You can look up the beep codes for your specific computer to figure out its specific problem.
3. If you are not comfortable fixing your computer yourself, I recommend taking your computer to a local repair store rather than a big retail store. Big stores are in the business of selling additional parts, not fixing problems.
If you are an advanced user, there are diagnostic programs that can help you figure out if you have a memory problem. Your computer may have one pre-installed by the manufacturer or you can download a third-party program. 4. The Windows Memory Diagnostic by Microsoft is also good if you suspect memory problems on a Windows PC.
5. If the above programs indicate your memory sticks are functioning, but you still suspect a RAM problem or if you need to find which memory module is the problem, you can try removing the modules and placing them in different slots.
