So I just discovered that when i turn on my PC it shows a red CPU light then a little later a red VGA light. I am using a R5 3600 and a 2060S, the pc works like normal. when its in windows the lights go away. I don't know if this is normal or not.
Recently moved my PC into a new case and ever since have been hearing a subtle 'revving' sort of sound coming from the motherboard (B450 Tomahawk Max) Never heard it before I changed case so I'm assuming the two are connected, maybe I knocked the board when moving it over and...
So basically my mobo ''died'' 2 months ago. First it had red cpu light, no display, then i shut my pc down via PSU button, and since then it wouldnt boot or even give a single fan spin, it literally acted like it wasn't plugged in power. Then I rmaed it, and they were fixing it for 2 months...
My mobo is the MSI Arsenal Gaming AMD Ryzen 2ND and 3rd Gen AM4 M.2 USB 3 DDR4 DVI HDMI Crossfire ATX Motherboard (B450 TOMAHAWK MAX II)
Hello, I'm hoping someone here can help me. I have 2 identical computers, one I built for myself and one for my son. Everything is identical, from the CPU to...
Went out and bought a Ryzen 7 5800X for my B450 Tomahawk Max and also bought 2 more of 3600 mghz ram of the same product that I already had. I have no idea what the issue is. The red LED for CPU is always on. I updated the BIOS to support Ryzen 7 5800X before installing everything. On the FIRST...
I've just bought my new 5900x and im currently running a 2700x with my MSI B450 Tomahawk Max, the new CPU will arrive in the next few days. I've seen a video from Hardware Unboxed where he said that the Tomahawk will handle it perfectly with it's VRM.
So for almost after a year now, can...
Connected everything to try and update BIOS from within bios itself and now PC won’t post. Lol.
Just got home with the b450 tomahawk max. I’m trying to flash the BIOS with the newest update to run my Ryzen 5 5600x.
I followed every instruction to a T when downloading the update file to the...
I recently built a PC with this part list https://pcpartpicker.com/list/PH2zrr about 2 weeks ago and had it working perfectly with low temps and running games and applications normally. I first noticed today that one of my games was having an unusually long loading time and a few hours later I...
I have an MSI B450 Tomahawk Max motherboard and a Ryzen 5 3400g processor. I can't boot until I update the BIOS with the flash BIOS option and a USB drive with the correct BIOS. I've been using the correct BIOS and renaming the file to "MSI.ROM" but every single time without fail I'll plug in...
As the title says, my system gets stuck during POST, with the BIOS LED on, then shuts down.
At first it was the VGA LED that got stuck.
After the first time, on reboot it started up seemengly correctly to Windows once, but some of the USB ports and the network (Ethernet) did not work...
This is my first build to be used as a VFX workstation (for learning) lighting and rendering. I'd like to make sure these parts are the best at this price range & all are compatible before I purchase.
To start with it's worth mentioning I'm completely new to overclocking and most of it baffles me. I've been trying a lot of things to get my RAM to 3600mhz as that's why I bought it but I could really use some help. Reading around it may actually be better to stop at 3200 or 3400 and aim for...
My PC recently crashed with an abrupt black screen and wouldn't turn back on. The DRAM debug LED lit up when trying to boot up, so naturally I removed one RAM stick from the 4th slot and successfully rebooted. Once I got video it brought up an error message pre-bios which read:
Hello, I just got a B450 Tomahawk Max motherboard. When I turn the computer on it boots immediately into Windows with the CPU fan at full speed(cpu temps are fine), however I cannot get into the Bios to adjust settings.
Additionally before it goes to Windows, it is just a Black screen. There is...
I have these power issues in my area and I'm wondering what UPS should I get for my build. Should I buy 1000va UPS which actually is recommended for my build or should I save my money by using just a 600va UPS. I aim to decide between "Artis 600va" and "Artis 1000va"
I built my pc over the summer and didn't experience this issue at all until this week. I cannot access the BIOS.
I've always had the option to access the BIOS upon booting for a few seconds before proceeding to Windows 10. When I boot now, it skips directly to OS. Also, I believe this...
A couple of weeks ago I updated an old build. I got a new B450 Tomahawk Max motherboard alongside an Intel 660p SSD. I had an old Win 10 flash drive which I used to install the OS and which ended up to be a 1703 version. I figured it would update eventually to 2009 but then I read...

I am going to get a Ryzen 5 3600, and am planning to overclock it in the future. Currently, both Tomahawk Max and Strix-F are at the same price. This might be overkill, but the other motherboard that I was going with - Mortar Max - has been out of stock.
Tomahawk Max is great for 3600, but now...

The PC would crash and instantly reboot itself every few days. I...

Hi, I am giving to give up with my PC at this point in time. It is my first build and the specs are listed at the bottom of this post.

Today I got a BSoD driver irql not equal or less. After the message, I can't boot up the pc. It happened while playing Guild Wars, which is a 15 year old game so not very heavy on the hardware, I think.
Here are my specs:
