Ryzen 5 1600 w/ MSI B350 motherboard not posting.

So this is my first PC build. I have the Ryzen 5 1600 with the MSI B350 Gaming Plus mobo, GIGABYTE GTX 1060 GPU and 3000 speed RAM (16GB).

I am past pulling my hair out at this point because no matter what I do it won't post, and what's even more frustrating is that I can't seem to find the reason why. Could it be a faulty CPU? A faulty Motherboard? I have no idea.

I even tried taking out the CMOS battery and put it back in after 3 minutes, still nothing. I have tried using only 1 RAM card, both, or none. Nothing seems to post.

Any other trouble shooting steps you guys can think of? Really I just want to find out the issue.

Any help would be much appreciated before I go completely bald!

Here is a video of me trying to boot it for context: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xOALDi9LJ-U

  1. Your video sways a bit and I notice it doesnt look like your HDMI is plugged into the video card. You do understand the motherboards video output doesnt work without an AMD APU. The Ryzen 5 1600 has no onboard video.

    Good catch!

    (It will be a long wait indeed if expecting video from MB's DVI/HDMI outputs!)

    I encountered a similar issue using my ASUS 1060 GPU on MSI B350M last week. I am used to connect the monitor with DVI cable ( as my old monitor doesn't have HDMI port ) before hardware upgrade. I found now only HDMI can display properly as I tested it on TV.

    So I suggest the guys who encountered similar issues, try to use to HDMI cable to connect to monitor.
