I just finished my new build and it won't post, I have upgraded from a core i3 6100 with a GTX 950 to a ryzen 2600 with an rx580.. I have just finished setting up my new hardware and it doesn't want to post. I have double checked that my cpu, cooler, ram and all the wires were correctly installed, when I power up the PC all the fans spin, rgb strips work, CPU cooler works and the motherboard lights up indicating it has power and that it recognises that the gpu is plugged in but the graphics card will not start spinning and I get no signal to the monitor (which I know works as I was just using it)...

I have tried troubleshooting by replacing the rx580 with my 950 and the fans on the 950 start spinning for a second then stop then start up again for a second then stop again on and on...

I then reinstalled all my old parts ie the 6100 with the stock cooler and the 950 and the same thing is happening, everything lights up but the 950 starts spinning for a second then stops on and on...

I am now wondering if something is wrong with the PSU and the wire is just failing to deliver power to the gpu...

That’s a pretty poor PSU for a RX 580. It shouldn’t even be in a system with a dedicated PSU, let alone a 580. Taking into consideration it’s also several years old, it’s time to replace that thing with a quality PSU regardless if it is the cause or not.

Yeap, I'm doing a step by step upgrade, psu and ram was next... Figured out the problem with the card, turns out I forgot to plug something in so that's my bad, took me 2 hours and multiple rebuilds to realise...
Still not getting a post tho, now I'm getting a triple beep error message. I'm going to take it to the local store tommorow and see if they can check whether it's a ram incompatibility issue. In theory the board should support the 2133hz stick but makes the same sound whether the stick is plugged in the right/ wrong lane or not at all so maybe I'll have to upgrade ram earlier than I thought.
