I have reached resolve thanks to you. I owe you much. I understand the issue, although not why.

Would you be able to tell me WHY I cannot connect a display cable to the motherboard, with a Ryzen CPU?

Thank you sir.

Thank you sir.
Some CPUs have integrated graphics (iGPU) like Intel i7 8700, AMD Ryzen 5 3400G. In that scenario you will be able to connect a monitor to the motherboard and use the iGPU. AMD might call them APU.
When you have a CPU without an iGPU like AMD Ryzen 7 2700X or Intel i7-9700KF, you won't be to get a display working when connected to the motherboard.

Your MSI Radeon RX 580 supports 2 or 3 monitors, so that's where your monitors should be connected.

I did not know you were connecting the monitor to the motherboard.
I should have asked.
