I’m doing my first complete build and can’t get my pc to POST and the red CPU light is on. I’ve done all the normal troubleshooting:
  • trying each RAM individually, bios flashing (with two diff USB drives, IDK if either is USB 2.0, it isn’t listed),
  • reseating CPU & checking pins, CMOS hard reset,
-removing GPU & trying onboard graphics,
-double checking connections

nothing has worked so far.

Build:

MSI B45 Tomahawk Max
Ryzen 3 3200g (Used & not tested by me)
DDR4 Corsair RAM (Used & not tested by me)
EVGA 700W Bronze PSU
MSI 970 GPU

I bought a couple of parts used and was assured by the sellers they were like new, and they physically appeared to be, but because of Covid I couldn’t go in their houses to witness a test—they both seemed honest, regular dad-types. So I guess it’s possible I got 2 sticks of bad RAM or a jacked up CPU?

Are there any other possible solutions I can try?
