My mobo support page says 3 beeps indicates bad ram, despite the fact I've tried multiple ram sticks and tried without ram entirely, and it still beeps 3 times. Do I need to replace the motherboard?
Specs:
Mobo: Asrock B450M
CPU: Ryzen 3 2200g
GPU: RX 580
Memory: Ripjaws 2x8 DDR4 3200MHz
PSU: 500W Coolermaster

Check manual and make sure you place RAM in A2 slot if one stick and in A2 and B2 with 2 sticks of RAM. Those slots are tricky to insert RAM so make sure it' properly seated. Reset CMOS first and reset it after every change you make.
Unfortunately that didn't make a difference
