starting problem using the AMD 5 2600

Build parts:

ASUS Prime X570 Pro mobo

ASUS GeForce GTX 1050Ti

AMD 5 2600 CPU

8 GB Ballistix RAM


Samsung 970 EVO Plus

Samsung SSH224 DVD


All of the above parts are new. This is one of many builds I've done over 20 + years.

The computer won't start. I can't load Windows 10 Pro. I cannot enter the UEFI BIOS.

The start sticks at this screen, photo included.

Here is the pertinent info:


Please enter setup to recover BIOS setting.

When RAID configuration was built, ensure to set SATA Configuration to RAID mode.

Press F! to Run SETUP


Unfortunately, it will not respond to pressing F! or F2 for that matter. It is stuck.

I've had the mobo back at ASUS 3 times, 2 of which they tested the mobo finding nothing and the third time - after 5 months - exchanging the board.

I installed it hit the power button and nothing.

So, now I'm thinking it may be a defective CPU or a bad Samsung 970 EVO Plus M.2 drive.

I've tried different memory, different video cards, tested the PSU thoroughly with a meter, did not exchange or swap out, it's good, and am consulting help forums.

Has anyone ever seen anything like this? Does anyone have any advice?

I'm broke with no credit cards and hoping you all can help me get unscrewed. :-)
