Hi,
I m building a new PC.
My processor is i5-11600k
The motherboard Is gigabyte z590 gaming x
When the PC starts, It beeps 5 times & the VGA LED is lit.

I have not installed a video card because the CPU should have integrated graphics. Is it mandatory to have one?
Thx

This CPU?

This motherboard?

As I read the specs motherboard and CPU support integrated graphics. There should be no need for a separate, mandatory GPU.

Paragraph 20, Page 23 covers the Status LED's. Verify that you are reading the LEDs correctly.

Verify the beeps you hear: number and length.

Are you able to access BIOS?

Thx for your reply.
Yes, the CPU and the motherboard are right as in the links you posted.

Currently I have no display attached, I m waiting for the adapter from dp to DVI.

The manual says that the issue Is related to the vga( the led stay on)

But, In the FAQ 816 seems to be and issue related to the processor (5 short beep)


Who Says the right thing?

"right thing"

No way to know. I expect that you will need to wait for the adapter.

Will the new PC build boot into Safe Mode?

If so then Reliability History and/or Event Viewer may have captured some relevant error codes, etc. regarding previous failures.

Take a look.
