Problem booting with new cpu

4 minutes ago, Seiji said:

So recently I upgraded my ryzen 5 1600 to a ryzen 5 3600, but I didn't update the bios before I made the upgrade.

There's your cause.

 

If your motherboard supports BIOS flashback, you will be able to update the BIOS without any problems. If it doesn't though, you will need a Ryzen 1000/2000 chip to put into the board, update the BIOS and then you can put your 3600 back in. 

Other than going to a local PC store and asking them to update the BIOS, you can buy a cheap Zen or Zen+ CPU (something like a 200GE) and update the BIOS with that.

SOLVED: I did exactly that, bought the 200GE and managed to get to the bios, but the windows wouldn't boot, and the ssd that had the windows installed wouldn't show in the bootable options.

When that happened I simply changed the M.2 slot and it started normally.

After that I updated the BIOS and installed back my ryzen 5 3600 and it started normally.

 

Pc specs:

  • Asus TUF x470-plus gaming
  • Ryzen 5 3600
  • Rtx 2070 super
  • 16GB RAM DDR4
  • Seasonic SSR-650
  • Windows 10 64bit

 

So recently I upgraded my ryzen 5 1600 to a ryzen 5 3600, but I didn't update the bios before I made the upgrade.

 

When I tried booting it the fans would be really loud and it wouldn't even get to the bios screen, all I would get was the message "d-sub no signal" and nothing else.

 

I tried another GPU, checked the RAM sockets and I don't think there are any bent pins on the cpu.

 

I don't have my old ryzen processor so I can't check that.

 

Could it be a bios problem? IF it is a bios problem is there anything I can do other than going to a store and asking them to flash it for me?

 

Thanks

You need up to date Bios that supports Zen 2 CPU. If your local tech store is capable of updating it, then go ahead and ask them.

Yeah, that board doesn't have bios flashback AFAICS, so will have to update bios normally. If a friend trusts you you could borrow one to do that, but if not you'll have to buy a CPU, or go to a computer shop that'll do it for a fee.

If you still have your old Ryzen 5 1600 then you could put that back in and then update your UEFI, otherwise you would need to borrow another CPU or take it in to a shop to update the UEFI for you.

That sounds like a good idea, might be cheaper than taking it to a pc store, i think I'm gonna try to do that

So I bought the 200GE and I managed to get to the bios, but now when I start apparently my M.2 ssd is not being recognized.

 

My Sata SSD and my HDD do get recognized though, the problem is that my windows is in my m.2 SSD
