I recently bought a Ryzen 3 2200G to put on my current system and make in my HTPC.

my current system:
Ryzen 5 1600
asrock b350m pro4
16 gb ddr4 3000 mhz
Rx 480 4gb

after I updated the bios, and put the ryzen 3 2200G my pc wont boot.


I assumed that if I put my Ryzen 5 1600 it will boot, but It doesn't boot either.

My pc :

I posted a thread about this issue and the person who was helping me got banned.
https://forums.tomshardware.com/threads/pc-turns-on-and-off-after-20-30-secs.3582648/#post-21628845

I tried everything he said:

clear CMOS
RAM reseat
CPU reseat


and still doesn't work.


I have read one article about the same thing but in reversed, he mistakenly downgraded his bios.
https://forums.tomshardware.com/threads/asrock-ab350m-doesnt-boot-after-bios-update.3415608/

and the other guy suggested that he need an older cpu that fits his bios version to re-flash the bios version.

My brother has a Ryzen 5 2600x on his main rig right now, so maybe I can use that to re-flash the bios suited for my Ryzen 5 1600.

do you remember which bios version u had before and which u installed?
I have installed P3.40 first because it says in the website that I should update to that version and the pc with 2200G boots up but its kinda buggy

after that I upgraded it to P4.70/4.90 I cant really re-call and then the problem occured
 
can u move your ram stick to second slot from cpu?
then reset cmos:
turn off psu switch, switch clrcmos1 jumper on mobo to pin2-3 position, few time press power button or short power pins to discharge psu, switch back clrcmos1 jumper to 1-2 pin position, switch psu back on
start up your pc, it may take few minutes to startup with few powerdown/ups, so no rush here, it has to learn how to run your hardware first
if it takes longer than 5 minutes, bios might be bricked
