Ryzen 3 2200G GPU not detected by MSI motherboard - won't boot.

Question asked by lawspr on Jul 13, 2018

I have a new Ryzen 3 2200G APU.

I am using it on an MSI B350M motherboard.

Many times boot up will fail.  Screen shows nothing - black.  No MSI splash screen, no nothing.

When boot fails, the "EZ Debug LED" on the motherboard glows on "VGA" which means that the motherboard cannot detect a GPU.

It might boot fine 10 times in a row, then it won't boot with the error above.

To correct the problem I cut the power and reboot.  It might take a dozen tries, then it will boot just fine.

No problems at all once it boots.  APU functions perfectly within windows.

 

How can I correct this?

Is this a bad APU?  A bad motherboard?

Updated BIOS to latest specs.

 

Thanks.
