I'm going to mark this solved as soon as I can figure out how.
First of all, I am an idiot.
Having said that, this new computer I just built (MSI motherboard, AMD Ryzen 5 -3600, 16 GB RAM is not my first build.
I put everything together carefully, and connected the motherboard HDMI port to my tv and fired it up, but nothing on the display. After searching Google for tips, I found a response to someone else here from "DRagor" that included the line: " ... Considering it's Ryzen and you can't try it without GPU, ... ", I recalled reading a notice on the box that the CPU came in that says "Discrete GPU required".
At the time, I said to myself "yeah, yeah" and dutifully ignored it. It wasn't until I read DRagor's message that I dug out my GTX1060 and plugged it in, and the board booted right up!
So thanks to DRagor. You fixed my problem! (Now on to the next one)
