B350 Gaming Pro with Ryzen 5 1600 no post

Having trouble getting my first real (ive made upgrades before but first full) build to post.

I bought an MSI B350 gaming pro, Ryzen 5 1600, and 2 Corsair Vengeance LPX 8gb.

The CPU fell perfectly in place when I installed it, no force required. All the fans spin up correctly. Im positive the psu is installed correctly on the board. Ive tried everything on this websites "no post checklist" but the CPU debug light is still on. I gave it probably 20 minutes as I tried the checklist then booted it up and then ate dinner and came back to the cpu light still on and no BIOS.

Ive read a lot of comments with similar problems saying the BIOS needs to be reflashed to a compatible version with ryzen 5. My board says MS-7A39 V1.0, so if there are boards that ship with an outdated BIOS im assuming that mine having V 1.0 would be that. However I did see a post on the MSI forums saying that the board should be compatible out of the box and not need a BIOS update.

Im just curious if there is something im missing before I call the shop back and try and exchange. If it is just the BIOS and they cant fix it, is there anything you can recommend that would be compatible with the ryzen 1600.

Thanks very much for your help.

    *2 AMD Ryzen Processor does not support

    7th Generation A-Series APUs have graphics processor. The Ryzen CPU does not have a graphics processor. You won't get a picture from rear motherboard video ports with Ryzen.

    AMD is currently only selling 7th Generation A-Series APUs in OEM builds.
