Basically I’ve had a problem with my pc where it doesn’t send any info to my screen I’ve tried with both gpu and without with bare components (only ram motherboard and cpu) I’ve reset bios and tried all possible things I can think of I have a ryzen 7 3700x and a msi b450 gaming pro carbon max WiFi they are compatible as far as I can tell all other components shouldn’t matter as it does not work without them or with them this also goes for power supply I’ve switched out all of the main parts ( cpu motherboard psu) anybody know any fixes or what is wrong.
Specs: evga 500w 80+,
msi b450 gaming pro carbon max WiFi,
ryzen 7 3700x,
GeForce ASUS 2060 strix,
4 X 8 GB DDR4 Corsair vengeance rgb pro, samsaung 1tb ssd
and a 2tb wd hdd.

That CPU does not have integrated graphics, so you MUST use a GPU.

When you plug the monitor to the PC, are you plugging it into the DP/HDMI port on the GPU itself, or the one on the motherboard?

You should use the one(s) on the GPU. The latter would ONLY work if there was no separate GPU installed AND you had a "G" chip (Ryzen 2200G, 2400G, 3200G, 3400G, 4300G, 4600G, 4700G and Athlon 200GE, 220GE, 240GE and 3000G).

I’ve tried all possible variations of what you’ve said I’ve tried using gpu and without tried using motherboard to connect to monitor while gpu is in used dp and hdmi on both and nothing seems to work the whole pc turns on tells me the cpu is not working and doesn’t show anything on screen at all

I’ve been running this system with no problems for about a year until I changed the case to an nzxt I’m guessing I messed up something or broke something there I’m just trying to see what happened aswell as this I did use a 650w Corsair to run it at one point but sent it back realising that isn’t the problem
