My PC is freezing when I get to the motherboard splash screen it won't boot from a usb either gets the same result. I've replaced the ram motherboard and have run on integrated graphics as well as with just a usb boot drive.

not saying its the board. the board runs a POST, a Power On Self Test and the results are given through the speaker. the speaker can tell you what the problem is, RAM, GPU, RTC. the beeps tell you what part of boot failed, where to look to fix it.

that motherboard MAY require a BIOS upgrade to support that CPU. BIOS version 2605 and above support the 3400g.
please verify that that your BIOS version is above that.

it should be listed on the box

hi jack
welcome to the forums, sorry its an error that brings you.
what model is your computer? you should be able to bypass the splash screen and get the verbose screen which can tell you where in the boot process the system is freezing. are you getting any beeps? is there a speaker connected as described in step 17 here?

Specs:
Rx 580 sapphire

I've tried doing a boot override in bios but it freezes as soon as I click it and I have no speaker other than the one integrated in my monitor

if your feeling creative you can make one.

canned diagnostic speaker rant: speaker making 101
The diagnostic speaker is the motherboards main diagnostic feedback device.
the motherboard may be telling you where the problem is.
my speakers have this plug

I use lamp wire but any stranded wire will do. literally any stranded wires. strip one end like so

attach the stripped end into the speaker spring clips on the speaker.
the other end of the wire should be trimmed like so the semi strip

by doing a semi strip the wire case is now the socket.
plug one wire to the first pin, and the second onto the fourth pin.
power on the system and listen for beeps
end canned rant

they are also sold at amazon and other places and are really cheap. motherboards used to come with them but to save a nickle...
example only, not an endorsement, shop around

Ok thanks for the clarification I updated my bios last night to no effect but I'll try the speaker
