A350-Gaming3 VGA LED NO POST
« on: October 02, 2017, 06:12:14 pm »
Hello all,

First build in a long time. A350-Gaming3 with Ryzen 5 1600. I've tried both the integrated DVI and HDMI but I am unable to see the POST.  VGA LED is lit on the mobo.  Any ideas?

I have a GPU arriving soon so will also test with that when it arrives I just assumed I could use the onboard graphics to get the setup started.

Thanks!

No, the Ryzen 5 processor doesn't have graphics capability so you will need a GPU.

The graphic ports on the motherboard are there for those that want to install an APU such as this: https://www.scan.co.uk/products/amd-a-series-a12-9800-s-am4-quad-core-4-thread-42ghz-2mb-cache-radeon-65w-cpu-retail
Remember, when all else fails a cup of tea and a good swear will often help! It won't solve the problem but it will make you feel better.
