Did you just built this? Turn of PC. Insert ram in slot A2 and B2 (2nd and last slot)

Yeah i just build it, i havent update bios yet, just wanted to see if it could turn on. There isnt enough space for me to get to the last slot, (if its the closest to the Cpu)

Ok but the cpu needs power you know. You need to update the bios for the motherboard to support ryzen 3000's cpu's

Yeah i know, but can it have anything to do with the light, that i havent updated it yet? Can that trigger a dram light?

Yes. You won't get any boot without version 5220. CPU not detected and can't detect DRAM. Check motherboard box (the white sticker). It states your motherboard BIOS version.

Where did you buy the board? My suggestion is taking contact to the store and get them to update the bios using a Ryzen 2000 CPU.
