Specs: b550 aorus pro ac, 5600x, gskill 2x8gb 3200cl16, adata sx8200 pro 1tb, gx 650w seasonic, gigabyte 1660 super, corsair 275r case 

 

Swapped out only motherboard and cpu from old build. Using all original parts. 

 

When I turn it on with the power button, DRAM debug light is on, no matter the configuration or number of sticks. When I press and hold the power button, instead of turning off, the debug light swaps to CPU and my case lights start flashing like mad. Once I let go of the power button the flashing stops and the debug led goes back to dram. 

 

Also, I can't turn the pc off other than by just turning the power supply off or unplugging it from the wall directly. When I press and hold the power button it doesnt turn off?? Please help, I need the build up urgently for work purposes. I can answer any questions, I just need the build to work.

Thanks for the quick reply. Is there anything else I should try? What about the power button acting all weird?

So you didn't know it?

 

Your board have bios flashback feature, use that to up the bios the the one that does support 5600x from gigabyte website

It can't even boot though. Shouldnt the bios be supporting ryzen 5000 series out of the box anyway?

Well, bios flashback didn't even require ram or cpu to be installed on yhe motherboard all you need is another pc to download the bios ( even possible smartphone) and fresh/empty usb stick

 

They SHOULD support 5000 out of the box IF they were manufactured when 5000 already launched... So yes but actually no

I guess it won't hurt to update the BIOS. Is there a tutorial from official source like Aorus? Can I do it even with all the components installed? How do i know if my BIOS is outdated in the first place?

Not sure, but iirc its fine on asus board, probably best to just follow the manual, there's even lots of video about it, just makes sure to search the correct manufacturers that make it

Well that's the thing you and i probably didn't know, i suspect it's old bios bcs of the super weird behaviour and you mentioned its all new out of the box, if after bios flashing (assuming it's actually success flashing it) the board still have those problems you mentioned in your original post then the board is probably bricked and you should rma it

Thank you for your help. I will try to update the BIOS first, and if it still doesn't work I will have to RMA it. 

 

Quick side question: Will r5 5600x work with my old b450 tomahawk max board? If I rma the new gigabyte board i still need a pc to use in the meantime and maybe i can use the new cpu with old board?

Yes but you still have to update it, it was more pr less the same "problems"

Gotcha. Which tutorial should I follow to update the BIOS on the gigabyte board? Preferably the official one, but any great tutorial is fine as well.
