Hey! So I built my own computer, currently have a Ryzen 5 2600x, 570 Tomahawk, and a new msi GeForce gtx 1660 as well as 16 gigs of ram and an 850w power supply. I was having issues with my old Asus motherboard so I returned it and swapped it out for the 570. However now I am getting no power throughout the entire system, including fans and lighting. I’ve replaced every part that I believed could’ve been the problem and still no luck. If anyone has any ideas please let me know! Thanks

an 850w power supply.

What is the brand and model name or number of the PSU.

Does the PSU itself activate when you press the power on button on the case.

Was the same PSU used with the previous MB.

What type of problems were you previously having.

Current psu is thermaltake tough grand, 850w. It won’t start up either, and it is a different one than used with the previous mobo. I tried the original with the new mobo before switching it out and it didn’t work either.

I was originally having problems with no boot on the system, but my fans and rgb were all running just fine. I sent it back to the seller and they confirmed it was a hardware problem specific to that model.

If not done already, test the PSU as shown in the video here no need to attach a chassis fan as we are just trying to make sure that the PSU works when jump started.

Not sure what you mean by the above I`m afraid.

Did you do the test as shown in the video, if yes, did the PSU activate.

Just a fyi, a computer can only boot into Windows if all the hardware passes the power on self test (POST) and booting into an operating system is in fact the last thing that the BIOS checks as part of the POST.

Psu activated, can’t get computer to post. Figure I should try to flash bios?

Three possible causes then, the case button is faulty or not correctly connected to the front panel header on the MB, the PSU is not connected to the MB correctly ,worse case scenario the MB is bad.

Flashing the BIOS is always a last resort and being that your CPU is a second gen Ryzen it should work out of the box with an X570 chipset MB.

Did you see a BIOS screen at all.
