Booting issues


Hi guys. New to Linus but really enjoying his videos


Have a issue with a new build I'm doing for my nephew that won't post/boot


On the ez debug LEDs the CPU lights and goes out but the dram does nothing. With no ram inserted both lights come on and stay

Have dismantled all the way down to just CPU, fan and ram 


Could it be a faulty ram stick or MB?


The system is

Ryzen 5 2600

MSI b350 gaming plus MB

Xpg ddr4 2400

Coolermaster masterwatt lite 500

Gigabyte 120gb ssd

MSI Radeon rx580


Any help would really be appreciated

Is there a Mem OK button? If so, try that. If not, then uhhhh- try 1 stick of ram in every slot, then the other. If no combo of ram and position work, RMA your board. If your new board shows the same issue; RMA your RAM. If both fail, RMA your CPU. I suspect Mobo, personally. My first MSI board had the same issue, wouldn't power on with RAM installed. It ended up being dead

Brands I wholeheartedly reccomend (though do have flawed products): Apple, Razer, Corsair, Asus, Gigabyte, bequiet!, Noctua, Fractal, GSkill (RAM only)
