Unable to post to update BIOS with Ryzen 5 3600 and MSI B450M Pro-VDH Max

From what I'm reading, these B450M Pro-VDH Max boards come with updated BIOS that are Ryzen 3000 ready.

There's no BIOS Flash Button on this model unfortunately.


But have everything installed, and I'm getting the "CPU" and "DRAM" debug lights coming on...power is on to all fans, including GPU, but just black screen, cannot get to post to update BIOS, if needed.


MB: MSI B450M Pro-VDH Max


CPU: Ryzen 5 3600


RAM: Team T-Force Dark Z 16GB (2x8) DDR 3200 (TDZRD416G3200HC16CDC01)


SSD: Samsung 860 EVO 1TB


GPU: Asus GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER 8 GB DUAL EVO Advanced Video Card


Power:  Corsair CX (2017) 550 W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply


Sound Card: Creative Labs Sound Blaster Z 30SB150200000 OEM 24-bit 192 kHz Sound Card



This is my first build, so forgive me if the solution is obvious...but I wanted to ask here before taking it all apart and inquiring about a Boot Kit.


Things I've already tried:

  • Going down to 1 stick of RAM
  • Removing the "Reset Switch" from mobo
  • Using VGA and HDMI directly from mobo ports


Any help would be GREATLY appreciated...been on this for 5 days now.
