Question MSI B350 Tomahawk Ez Debug VGA led

Apr 1, 2020
Hello all,

Today I unintentionally hit the case of my PC with the edge of my thumb while I was holding a stone (that still hurts a little :)). The computer was working and the monitor screen went dark. After that I was unable to boot. The CPU and RAM ez debug leds were shining so I reseated the RAM and that fixed it but then the VGA led turned on. After some time runing with no signal on the monitor and VGA led shining, the CPU led (not ez debug) turned on too. I reseated the GPU and nothing happened so I put it in the PCIe 2.0 x16 slot. It then worked and now everything seems to be fine. There seems to be no HDD damage too. Before Windows 10 loaded for the first time after the accident, I went to the BIOS and everything looked normal (I have some CPU OC settings) but after I got into Windows the OC settings were gone.

My question is could it be that the main PCIe 3.0 x16 is broken and is it possible that I broke something else too?
