Hi all, first PC build. I have a B450-F MB with a Ryzen 3600.
All connected including GTX 1060 (taken from my old PC along with PSU).
On power up MB lights up, RAM lights up, CPU fan spins and GPU fans spin.
No beep and does not POST.
QLED light is orange.
I have tried mem in 2nd and 4th slots, and also just one DIMM in 2nd slot only.
I have seated and reseated the GPU.

Thoughts:

Memory is not compatible? It's CORSAIR VENGEANCE RGB PRO DDR4 3600MHz (2 x 8 GB).
MB needs BIOS updating? But how can I do that without getting first to POST?

Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

I think you're right. The sticker on the MB (see picture) seems to suggest it has BIOS version 2008, so I'll need a BIOS update before I can do anything. Arrgghhh! Now I'll need to contact AMD to get a BIOS update kit. What a pain.

If you are lucky, a PC repair shop may be able to do it for you. Or depending what you would pay, I think there are athlon CPUs being sold for 40-50 that would probably do it. Maybe pick one up and try to resell. But contacting AMD should be the free route.
