The graphics card or the power connectors might have gotten loose, reseat the graphics card and mare sure the power connectors are all the way plugged in.

The 3200G has integrated graphics, try taking the graphics card out altogether and booting off the integrated graphics.

Try clearing the CMOS, past that I'm not sure what else to suggest maybe someone else has some ideas.

I do....

 

Remove the RX 570 completely from the rig.

See if it posts off the Vega graphics, so plug the HDMI cable into the motherboard HDMI out.

its very possible he did first have a psu that caught fire but i did extensive benchmarks on all the parts left it on overnight as well as checked for anything that looked damaged but there wasnt a single issue until i gave it back to him

Electronics are mysterious in that way. 

They break. It happens. 

You get to go over with all your parts and start testing.

It would be easiest to put his cpu into your rig. test that.

Then the board might be bad. 

Slide his PSU to your rig, give that a go. Working? board likely bad.

Same method for the video card.

That way you don't have to pull the screws on his mainboard until you pull it for RMA, if that is the issue anyways....

Don't let feelings get in the way of conducting business and diagnostics.  Friends don't have this issue though, you guys be fine. Payment? Heck it's only money.... he'll make more. no problem.

So test each component individually. Have fun with it. Practice makes perfect anyways :P
