I have a MSI B450 Tomahawk Max Mobo with Ryzen 5 3600 installed in it.

Whenever I start my system the red error light in the CPU blinks twice and goes off. My system however boots and working.
Detail: When I switch on my system, the error light flashes on for 2 seconds then it goes off and again after 2 secs it flashes on for 2 secs and goes off and then the system loads and everything works normal.

Is it a normal activity?

My B450m Mortar does something similar... all lights light, then CPU lights for about 3 sec's and turns off...then DRAM light blinks, then VGA light blinks. Then all off and screen displays windows logon.

It's just part of the POST (Power On Self Test) process I imagine and is probably peculiar to how each BIOS runs through tests.
Oh then fine. I was worried..
