I've just built my second PC for someone else, and whilst there were not issues with the first computer, this second one is proving to be a headache. I'm fairly new to computers and only know the basics, so feel I'm over my head now.
My setup is:
AMD Ryzen 5 3600 with included cooler
Asus PRIME B550M-A (WI-FI) Motherboard
G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3200 CL16 Memory
Seagate BarraCuda 510 250 GB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive
GALAX GeForce GTX 1660 6 GB (1-Click OC)
Corsair RMx (2018) 550 W 80+ Gold
The steps I've taken:
1) Computer initially turned on ok after plugging in keyboard, mouse, monitor, and was able to enter bios. Noticed CPU temp in BIOS was around 59C which I thought was a bit high, but didn't think much else. Changed the RAM settings to 3200hz. Didn't change anything else.
2) Created a windows 10 USB to boot off. Plugged in and the main Windows screen with the options to install came up (ie. English language, English keyboard etc), but it was frozen and I couldn't press enter, or press mouse to move to the screen. Next few times when i tried to do this again, it turned on to this screen briefly, then screen went black, and it looped like this until I forced off.
3) Did some research and tried to force the USB to boot via the BIOS and this seemed to work until the options to install screen came up again (this time I was able to use mouse to select and then select enter). It started to load the next screen, but turned off again. I tried again, but it kept turning on/off again in a loop, so I forced off.
4) Then tried to update the bios via USB, and now that won't even turn on (neither does the monitor).
I've tried unplugging and replugging in the RAM, GPU, stock cooler and resetting the CMOS. When I turn on, all the fans work (the lights are on the mobo) but the monitor stays black and nothing loads.
Does anyone have any ideas to try?
