To start off here's my pc specs
Ryzen 5 3400G
MSI B450M Mortar Max
Coolermaster TUF 650w Bronze Semi Modular
Corsair 2x 8GB RGB Pro
After I installed the new cooler (Deepcool Gammax GTE V2) the computer won't start.
Here's what's happening. No monitor display, keyboard/mouse won't light up. BUT all the case fans and the cpu fan are running just fine. Mobo led lights are lighting up as well, RAM rgb is lighting too.
Does this mean the cpu is done for but the mobo is just fine? I then removed the new cooler and the CPU.
By this point I noticed one of the CPU pins is bent.
BUT still even if one of pins is bent. I still reinstalled the cpu and the stock fan (made sure the CPU orientation is correct) and the computer booted up just fine for whatever reason (yay! for now)
But sadly. I restarted the computer now it won't start again, same thing is happening (All fans and rgb lights lighting up/no monitor display, keyboard/mouse not lighting up)
By this point I noticed the EZ Debug is lighting up the cpu indicator, which could mean the cpu is not detected or failed (according to the manual)
Tried entering safe mode, tried entering BIOS. Nada.
Tried reseating both RAM, tried starting the PC with 1 RAM in the correct 2nd slot. Still nothing.
What should I do, do I replace the CPU? Which is fine since I'm due for an upgrade, but it still hurts. Or is the MOBO fried as well, which is definitely NOT GOOD. Definitely not good.
