B450M S2H with Ryzen 5 5500

B450M S2H with Ryzen 5 5500
« on: October 25, 2022, 08:26:49 pm »

I upgraded my son's gaming PC with the following combination:

Motherboard: B450M S2H
Processor: Ryzen 5 5500

Apart from starting the CPU fan the combination seems pretty bricked: I never get gigabyte banner to the screen.

I am suspecting incompatible BIOS.  The required bios version for B450M S2H:

--> seems to be F62

The when I look the BIOS version history table here:

it says: 2022/02/09

That's in february 2022.  I bought the MB about month ago (sept.)

Could it be that the bios is old?  Any way to confirm this?

If you don't have any other parts to test the board it kinda hard to trouble shoot it. Yes it could be the bios, motherboard memory or CPU. The other thing you have no little LED to tell what is going on. If you did have them they would tell you what part is the problem.

I had something just like this happen to me. But I was lucky enough that it work.

I have Ga-A520M DS3H MB. I put in a Ryzen-5-4500 CPU. I check the support list of CPU. It says that to run this CPU you need Bios F14. At this time the board is running Bios F2 and everything is working.

You really have to start with the CPU. You will have to get another one that the board will support one at F1.

I'm just asking you using a video card or trying to boot from the board. If by chance you trying from the board it will not work you need a video card.
