I'm fairly new to computer stuff. I've only really upgraded my gpu before and it's worked great since. However, I recently thought I needed to upgrade my cpu. What I have is Ryzen 3 Quad Core and I just got a Ryzen 5 3600 6 Core. I watched videos and got advice and everything on putting it in. I was careful and didn't touch the bottom of the chip. I'm 99% sure nothing is broken and I have gone through and rechecked every wire and it all seems in place. When I turn it on, everything powers on, the fans and all, but nothing displays on my monitor. I asked some friends and they thought maybe it's my motherboard that was outdated. I have a ASROCK A320M-HDV motherboard that came with my pc when I bought it pre-built a year or two ago. I had thought that since I already had a Ryzen cpu before that it would work, but now I'm not so sure. Does anyone have a solution to why it's not working?
