Pc is running but not showing a display

Just now, Mingo said:

I got a new cpu (Ryzen 7 3800x) and a new pc case, transferred everything from the old case (gtx 2070 32 gigs of ram asus prime b450M-A) to the new one and when I went to turn it on everything booted but nothing showed up on my monitors. I’ve tried every fix I could find so this was my next option hope you can help.

Have you updated your BIOS before installing the new CPU? If not, have you ensured the current BIOS support Ryzen 3000 CPU's?

You need BIOS 1201 or newer.

 

Not that I would recommend a Ryzen 7 on this board though..

I apologize for the way I am. If my post seemed rude, that was not my intention. Just my ineptness in forming a nice coherent message.

The CPU released after the motherboard did, so the motherboard couldn't possibly have support for the newer CPU.

That is a case where a BIOS update is definitely needed.

 

Install the previous CPU and update the BIOS. Check how to update the BIOS in the motherboard manual and do check if you can just go to the newest version or if you need to go from one to another.

I still would not recommend a motherboard with no VRM cooling for a Ryzen 7 3700x.

Put in the old cpu and it’s not even turning on now

Are you sure the front panel connectors are properly connected?

On the bottom right of your motherboard there are a bunch of cables (at least there should be). These are called your front panel connectors and are responsible for connecting your case's features (power/reset buttons, hard drive LED, etc.) to your motherboard.

Are you sure these are connected properly, or more specifically are you sure the case's power button cables are connected to the right two pins on the motherboard?

 

Ensure there are no bent pins on the CPU too.

All the cables are in and there were like 3-4 bent pins but I was able to straighten them
