Hi.

Been having a little trouble since last night Pc unable to boot but the dram rgbs/gpu/case fans lights are on and are spinning like normal operation. No lights from motherboard though. The CPU and Dram ez debug light stays on no matter what. No bent pins so far from what i can see.


I tried reseating the cpu, all ram slot with only 1 slot and reset cmos. Still no light from mobo. No loose connections at all.


Board is a msi x370 gaming pro carbon and with a Ryzen 1800x

Hi Nick,

Prior to this it was working right?
Trace back changes you made before this happened.

Some troubleshooting steps:
Remove the board from the casing.
Clear CMOS
Boot with a single stick of ram on dimm2.
(Remember ryzen master boot slot is dimm2 and boot DC is 2/4)

See how it goes from there.
If the board has been shorted, you can bring it down for a check too. :)

Hi clon

Yes it was working when i sent my rx580 to service.
Went down this morning and confirmed board able to boot up to bios with display on open test bench. If motherboard contact with the case metal. If VGA debug light didnt come on is not gpu problem?
The motherboard lights did not come on last night and ezdebug for both dram and cpu came and stayed on . Everything else was operational.


Will try on open bench tonight. Thank you!

Probably VGA I/O shorted.
Try re-seating and jiggle alittle, it should be fine. :)

*Anything just let us know.

Thank you! By VGA output is it the one at the pcie slot or the hdmi input of gpu at the exhaust of the card? If board boot up means shld be ok?

Sorry to trouble you!

As in the gfx card I/O bracket.
Yes, most cases when the board boots up, it's good.
(rare cases, usb i/o)
Generally, nothing serious.
