So recently I tried changing out my Ryzen 3 2200g to a ryzen 5 1500x. However the ryzen 5 1500x would not boot the system up. And now when I load up my computer with the ryzen 3 2200g it doesn't load up into the bios menu but gives no signal until the windows operating system. I can load up into the bios when I press reset. How can I solve the Bios problem and switch out to the Ryzen 5 1500x?

Specs
CPU's: Ryzen 3 2200g / Ryzen 5 1500x
Motherboard: MSI A320M pro-vd plus.
Gpu: Zotac 1660 ti
Memory: 2x 8gb corsair vengence 3200
Storage: 1tb Westgate, 2tb firecuda hybrid
Power supply: 450 watt bronze edition.

Something about your noted components doesn't seem right. The motherboard you have listed doesn't support Ryzen at all, only A series and Athlon X4. https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/support/A320M-PRO-VD#support-cpu

Just as I expected, the RAM is on the QVL for the 2200G but isn't for the 1500X. You can try getting into BIOS and manually setting your RAM to 2666MHz or maybe even 2800MHz and see it it will boot with the 1500X then. However, it might be easier to return the 1500X and get a 2600 instead.
Would it be a problem if i set the frequency up to 2667? Can i still use the ryzen 3 2200g if i set up the frequency?

You can still use the Ryzen 2200G at 2666, it just won't have optimal performance.
So I tried everything that you asked of me going into the bios and everything, I figured out that everything was set up correctly the only problem was that the DVI cable was plugged into port 3 while the motherboard only reconized port 1. Sowhen I switched the cable everything became fine. Again thank you for replying to my problems
