Hi, this is my first time ever making any forum post. Ive been working with computers for 2 years now so I am not that experienced but I believe I know a little of what I'm doing. After finally getting my first job when i graduated high school I decided to build a GOOD computer that wasnt made out of old recycled ebay parts. I went all out and bought:
An AMD Ryzen 3700x:
An MSI RTX 2060 6gb
ASUS ROG STRIX B450-F motherboard
EVGA 850 Bq, 80+ Bronze 850W PSU
16gb of T-Force 2600Mhz RAM 2x8
these are all brand new components. I was using the stock cooler that came with the CPU.
And everything was AMAZING. I went to look around in the bios for a bit. Never owned a real gaming motherboard before, I changed exactly one number, I forgot what it was. Something to do with the CPU. I exit the bios and the computer then would not post, and never posted again.
First thing i tried doing was resetting the bios. I took the cmos battery out, unplugged everything and shorted the clear cmos pins. Tried turning it on, no post. I get no beep codes, i get two error lights on my motherboard saying VRAM and CPU. So maybe I damaged the board. I had another 16gb ram kit on the way here AND a new nvme m.2 drive on the way, this was very infuriating to me. So I ordered a new motherboard. An ASRock B550M PRO4.
After proper installation, I got the same error. no post, no display. Nothing. So I tried replacing my CPU, it got damaged during shipping while trying to return it to Newegg. So they sent it back to me, i ordered ANOTHER Ryzen 3700x. Off amazon instead.
After installation of the new cpu, still the same error. the ram kit came in, tried new ram, it was also T-force ram. Still the same error.
I quite literally bought a whole other computer at this point. The power supply works completely fine as well as my rtx 2060. As i tested them in other systems. I dont understand anymore and Ive been thinking of buying corsair ram instead of t-force. If this doesnt work, Im out of options and I give up. Does anyone want a broken system? Because I am just about done.
Thank you guys so much in advance. I hope i gave enough information. if not then lemme know :)
