Hi,

I bought

AMD RYZEN 7 SERIES OCTA CORE PROCESSOR 1700 - WITH WRAITH SPIRE COOLING SOLUTION (AM4 SOCKET, 20MB CACHE, UP TO 3.7 GHz)

and fitted it to a motherboard

GIGABYTE GA-AB350-GAMING 3 AM4 AMD RYZEN B350 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 HDMI ATX Motherboard

I also have a graphics card

Gigabyte AMD RADEON R5 230 1GB DDR3 Graphics Card ( GV-R523D3-IGL ) PCI-E 2.0 / 1024MB / DDR3 / 64 bit / D-Sub / Dual-Link DVI-D / HDMI / Gold Plated HDMI

from which an HDMI cable is going to a Monitor

When I switch on the computer there is no POST details on the screen.

Instead, a red LED light which represents problem with CPU lights up.

I tried removing the RAM, Hard Disk & Graphics card.

Whatever I do the CPU fan rotates and there is no POST and the red LED marking problem with the CPU is there.

How do I troubleshoot this?

How do I understand if it is a problem with the CPU or motherboard?

 

Thanks
