  1. I know I've been sloppy in how I've covered my issue. Here's why mine is weird. I used G Skill at first, but then I also bought Corsair Vengeance. I did many combinations of all 4 sticks. 1) Both of the corsairs. A1 and B1. A1 and A2. B1 and B2, etc 2) Both of the G Skills. Same as above 3) One Corsair in each slot. Then the other one. 4) Same with the G Skills Now when I only had G skill, the problem could have been that it was incompatible, or that it was faulty. It's possible. But if Corsair is DEFINITELY compatible, and that d
  2. I really want the experience of building it. I've built one before. I know what you mean about AMD being harder, but I want to learn. Something went wrong the first time. You cant think of anything I should do differently? Edit-Aside from buying prebuilt. I already have the case, PSU, and SSD.
  3. Hey, was wondering if you can help me since you seem to really understand my problem better than others. I responded to your comment in my thread.

  4. I appreciate this. I want to learn more and challenge myself. I want to stick by AMD. Overclocking is not something I'm interested in right now. So with that in mind, would this be a good setup? https://pcpartpicker.com/user/BarronT/saved/4bhJVn It's what I had originally. I used GSkill Ram at first, but then I returned it. I still have the corsair ram, which I will use, but i did try the corsair ram in the original set up, and no luck. Part of me feels all the problems must have been that bent pin on the CPU, because nothing else makes sense. Th
  5. I gave up on problem solving, I returned the stuff and I'm back to planning.
  6. No, I bought all of these parts plus the MB I just showed you. Nothing would work and I even tried different RAM. I decided to return or replace everything. But Newegg said the Processor and graphics card were out of stock so they refunded me. Now I want to but a different MOBO, the same Processor, and the same Graphics card, once the price of the GC goes down. All the other parts on that list I already have. Oh believe me, I tried different RAM. I always got the one beep. Nothing worked. EDIT- And I went through pages and pages of troubleshoo
  7. Can you recommend a cheaper MB? I don't think I'll OC. I tried this build for a month with a different MB, and it never worked. I want a MB that is definitely compatible. This is the one that never worked. https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157762
  8. Will it be a good setup for what I want otherwise? Thanks guys.
  9. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/pyJnsJ This would be for gaming and 4K editing. I'm sold on everything except the motherboard. Will this run without a video card? I'm waiting for this VC to go down in price. Want to get started while I wait. https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814500431
  10. Here is my parts list. AMD RYZEN 7 1700 is my processor In addition, I have tried to switch it out with this ram. Neither work. It wont go to BIOS. HDMI not detected. When I turn on my motherboard, I get three beeps. Three beeps means that RAM isn't detected. Everyone tells me to make sure it's seated correctly, but I know that it is. Is it because AMD Ryzen can't support more than 2667 MHZ and both of these sticks are 3000? Should I switch the mobo? It's ASRock - AB350M Pro4 Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard ALSO Here's a review on amazon for the G-SKILL th
  11. So it still isn't working, even though I tried a new type of RAM. Corsair Vengeance. I notice my AMD Ryzen 7 1700 processor does not support higher than 2667 mhz. All the Ram sticks I got were 3000. Does that mean I should get 2667 MHZ RAM? Should I update the motherboard? This is the RAM I'm being told to get. https://www.amazon.com/G-SKILL-Flare-288-Pin-Memory-F4-3200C14D-16GFX/dp/B06XFT7DF9/ref=cm_cr_srp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8 But it's still 3000, even though it's "made for Ryzen." Should I get a new motherboard as well?
  12. Oh God, is that the problem? The Corsair Vengeance is no good. I tried all 4 of them in different slots, and no luck. What do you think? New ram at 2666? Both my Rams are at 3000.
  13. Trying Corsair Vengeance next. Hope this works. https://pcpartpicker.com/product/MYH48d/corsair-memory-cmk16gx4m2b3000c15
  14. Is the PSU going to cause a problem for being too powerful?
  15. I get three beeps on the motherboard. Tried every combination with my Ram sticks, and nothing works. Does anyone else have this combo? PC Part Picker says they work. Motherboard RAM Build
  16. There are four ram slots in this MOBO, and I just got two sticks. PC part picker says that they are compatible. I'm going to play around tomorrow and see what I can find. It is quite odd that both RAM sticks would break, or that 4 RAM slots wouldn't work. The system would at least go to BIOS if one RAM stick worked in one slot, yes?
  17. Tried cleaning off the ram sticks, I put them both in all 4 slots, together and solo. No luck, still three beeps. You're sure its not the CPU because there are beeps?
  18. Inserted a speaker in to the mobo. Three quick beeps. Manual says NOTHING. EDIT- Basic memory 64K address check error according to https://ddr4motherboard.com/beepcodes/ASROCK-AB350M-PRO4beeps That's the ram sticks then? I'm amazed both would be broken. I tried each one individually.
  19. Inserted a speaker for the MOBO. Three quick beeps.
  20. So I fixed up all these things, I found out about using a mechanical pencil to straighten processor pins. Same thing on boot though. VGA not detected, and the case will turn off around twenty seconds, then turn back on.
  21. Ok, so I'm going through everything, missed a few motherboard risers, I used the wrong screws to put the motherboard in place, and I noticed two processor pins were bent. Can I just bend them back in to place?
  22. Unplugged and re plugged, nothing works. Have you seen the photos? I'm wondering if I missed something. There's a bunch of cables I didn't use. https://flic.kr/s/aHsmb9t49D
  23. So the bios wont show up until I have windows? The graphics card does lite up. How do I reset the graphics card? Also, how would I boot from the old SSD? Have you seen the photos?
  24. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/bPP46X System will turn on, Bios wont show up. I tried connecting with HDMI, VGA, and DVi to my tv and monitor. My portable DVD drive powers on when I plug it in to the USB slots, as do the fans on the CPU, Graphics card, and case, and the LED on the power button (power on system turns on). Also, what can I do to bring my old SSD with OS on to my new Build? Is it possible to do it without a disc drive installed? Please help if you can.
