AsRock B450M ac with 16GB 3200 RAM
Computer kept coming on and switching off with no display.Could not boot into BIOS with function keys.
I did reseat the RAM as well change the slots. Reset CMOS. Took the battery out.
Put the 3 200G back in and no problems except having to set the RAM speed back up to 3200.
Defective CPU ?

Thanks. I didn't even consider that. I really feel stupid. Will check my BIOS version and I am sure it will need an update.

Make sure to read the bios notes. There can and will be an applicable stepping to updating the bios, you shouldn't just install the newest, but read what its requirements are. Asrock website downloads page has the full explanations.

AsRock's website did not did not state that the available bios updates would allow the 5 3400G to be supported. Yes I did read them. The box for the MB states that the MB is "3000 ready". I am waiting on a reply from their tech support. Thanks.
