    Recently i built a new computer and it doesn't boot. I checked if the psu is faulty by using it to another computer and it worked. I'm 100% sure that i have the right cables pluged in. When i press the power button the power light turns on but nothing happens, not even fans are working. I feel like there is something wrong with the mobo but i am not sure. Help

    Specs:
    ~mb=》 Gigabyte ga-ab350m-ds3h v2
    ~cpu=》 Ryzen 3 2200G
    ~ram=》 one 8gb stick

    Here is the support page for that board;
    https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/GA-AB350M-DS3H-V2-rev-11/support#support-cpu
    I think there is either a typo or some other mistake. The support page shows the 2400G supported from the first or release bios. This must be some mistake since the 2400G was not released until approx 9 months after the motherboard was released.

    Next question is why would you build a new system with a board that is almost 2yr old??? Are you sure you have the correct model#

    OK, did a little more checking and this is strange. The release bios is dated 22 Oct 2018 so the board is not that old however it uses the older 3xx chipset.
    It appears to me that gigabyte was really trying to cut costs on this board. It uses the old B350 chipset along with the cheaper realtek 887 sound chip and the realtek lan.

    So from further checking it appears the board does support that cpu from the first or release bios. There is a guide at the top of the forum for problem builds. If you have not read it, do so. If you follow ALL of the steps, you will find the cause of your no POST condition.

    Common errors for new builders;
    1 The 8/12pin aux or cpu pw connector not plugged in
    2 Motherboard shorting to the case due to incorrect placement of standoffs
    3 One or more parts not fully seated ie ram, video, etc
    4 Cooler or hsf not installed correctly. More an intel problem than an amd problem since the amd type coolers are pretty much idiot proof

    Maybe it's about cost and still have a decent build. It's what I used to do. Just saying.....everybody has there own reasons.

    Yah...there's got to some sort of typo...as I can't see the Ryzen 3 2400G. I see a Ryzen 5 2400G

    Yes, and i didn't find what the problem is. I have everything pluged in the right way. Actually, the only thing that is not pluged in is the monitor because i don't have one yet. Could that cause the problem?

    You cannot have followed ALL parts of the guide and not found the problem. Note the last part of the guide is to swap parts with known good units; ie motherboard, ram, pw supply, etc.
    So I understand, you did the complete out of case build and the system will not POST is that correct?

    That will not stop fans from spinning, hard disk spinning, etc.

    Then you need to follow the guide; swap parts with known good units. It is the only way you are going to find the cause of your problem.

    The only other option is to take your parts to a shop and have them diagnose the problem for you. Expect to pay at least 1hr shop labor for this service.

    After all, I tried to make it work by changing the cpu with an Athlon 6 9500, that a friend lent me so i could test if the cpu is broken, and it booted straight up. I changed the cpu again with the r3 2200G and it normally booted again. I am kinda confused but I'm glad that nothing is broken. Thank you all for your time.
