I've had a problem with my new build it gave no signal. I got a compatable ram as advised by tech support. I have a gigabyte b450m ds3h. I have a new motherboard coming as old one they think may be faulty. Can I get this motherboard to post with just cpu and ram or do I need gpu in it ?
If you have a CPU with Integrated video, you don't need a video card. Otherwise, you do. Also, depending on what CPU you have, you may have to update the BIOS for support for that CPU. Some people buy an older, cheaper CPU for this purpose. Here is the support list for that board, if you haven't looked at it yet: https://www.gigabyte.com/us/Motherboard/B450M-DS3H-rev-10/support#support-cpu
Motherboard: B450M DS3H
Graphics card : zotac 1060ti
Psu: Corsair cx750m
Case: nzxt h500i
Ram: 2x 8gb gskill aegis 8gb which I replaced for 2 8gb vengeance ram which was officially supported by gigabyte.
Cpu: ryzen 5 2600
All cable connected.
Went through troubleshoot checklist to no avail.
No signal to HDMI
No power to usb.
Powers up correctly. GPU spinning, fans spinning.
Cpu fan spinning, chip seated correctly.
Used a different HDMI, still no signal.
Breadboarded it, with just gpu ram and cpu. Still not post or bios or even a signal on monitor. Any idea what it could be ?
