Gigabyte X470 gaming ultra won’t boot :(

So, this is a slightly weird story, but at one point I was running a ryzen 7 3700x in this motherboard but then I put that into a separate pc and put a ryzen 7 1700 back into it and now it won’t post, my biggest idea is that it still has the upgraded bios used for the 3700x so I put the 3700x back into it and it still won’t post, I can’t get a post and there is nothing I can think of doing, the mobo LEDS flash from cpu to DRAM and stays on dram and flickers back to cpu for a second and then repeats

If the DRAM LED is on then that indicates an issue with the system memory. Is the processor the only thing that you changed or did you also replace the memory?

Dont know about the DRAM LED, But your Bios could be a reason it wont post due to changing from a newer cpu to an outdated cpu

Yes, do try with that. Put in the kit that was originally in there and see if it will boot up.
