PC won't POST

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Original PosterOP

Specs:

ASRock B450M Pro4-F

AMD Ryzen 5 3600

Nvidia GTX 1050ti (used)

16gb (dual) ddr4 3200 Klevv Cras X RGB

256gb Adata XPG SX8200 Pro SSD M.2 NVMe

2tb Seagate Barracuda 7200rpm

Silver Stone SST, 550watts, Strider Essential, PSU, 80PLUS gold

Tecware Alpha (used)

Dell 24' IPS monitor (used)

 

So I installed everything properly and I thought everything was running fine when the fans started spinning and the RAM light up but it displayed nothing on my monitor. Another thing to note is that it seems that it's booting fine because the NumLock on the keyboard responds.

 

I used an HDMI 2 volts cable inserted to the GPU. I also tried plugging it to the motherboard, and also tried a VGA cable. Nothing happened. The available ports for the monitor are DVI and DisplayPort (and among others) and I haven't tried it yet.

 

I reseated every part but to no avail. Also changed the CMOS battery. Still, nothing happened. Plugged my CPU to a direct power outlet, still nothing.

 

I suspect that this may be from the motherboard's BIOS (which I can't flash because there's no display), or this may be a compatibility issue with B450 boards and 3rd gen Ryzens. Another possible problem is from the GPU (I already cleaned it, changed the heatsink, reapplied thermal paste) and from the cables or the monitor itself. Any tips on how to fix this?

The board is brand new. It said on the box that it is Ryzen 3rd gen ready so I didn't really think I'll run into this problem. We haven't tried this yet so maybe this might do it

Its true that it works with the ryzen 3000 series chips but looking onto there website your Board is listed needing a Bios update for that ( i mean your board could be sitting in the store for a year )

Definitely the GPU. The 1050ti is getting pretty old now so you were in a need of an upgrade anyways.
