New build, MSI Tomahawk B350 mobo, new Ryzen 3 2200g. Updated BIOS to 7A34 using AMD A6 9500, so should be ready to go, but no success. Easy Debug light lit when powered up. Am I missing something?
What is the code you are getting during POST?
nothing... just black screen I thought that it was DOA at first, then I got a replacement and it did not work aswell
Do you have a speaker on your motherboard for POST? (It uses beep codes)
It looks like this:
If not,then buy one (they are very cheap) attach it to your motherboard and then turn on the system,
You sould hear beeps,count the beeps and remember if the beeps are:
for example: 1 short beep and 2 Continuous beeps.
then reply to me (i can't edit for some reason)
ok thanks. I will try that.
Seems like this is a common problem with MSI Motherboards and Ryzen. Here is a good thread from Tom's Hardware on how to flash a bad BIOS on the B350 Tomahawk: https://www.reddit.com/r/Amd/comments/61m74l/warning_to_msi_b350_tomahawk_users_updating_their/
First, If you are able to Flash your BIOS, MSI has a very new BIOS & AMD Chipset Driver Update :
BIOS - 7A34v1G - 3/20/18 - Improve Memory Compatibility.
AMD Chipset Driver - 03/28/2018
You need the have BIOS version 7A34v1C and above installed for the Ryzen 3 2200G CPU to work. Which you do. just FYI.

I also would be sure the Memory you have installed is listed under MSI Compatible Memory List: Support For B350 TOMAHAWK | Motherboard - The world leader in motherboard design | MSI Global
