rog strix b650e-f gaming WIFI no boot/post

Level 7


I recently bought my new pc and it's the first time building/assembling one myself. What can go wrong right?

I am trying to boot it, but nothing is showing up on screen. The VGA LED on the motherboard is lid up white and the one below is lid up green (not really brightly). So I understand the VGA tells something's wrong with the GPU.

Took the GPU out and tried the onboard video. Same result. Tripple checked all cables connected fully.

Tried mutiple cables for my monitor (HMDI/DP).

Tried Bios flash with USB 2 in bios port. Pressed the bios flash button 5-10 seconds seconds. No LED lighting up. Waited 15 minutes just in case. 

All fans are working (case fans, GPU fans, CPU fans).

DDR is in the correct slots.

Summary of what I tried:

  • Boot with all components connected
  • Boot with HDMI
  • Boot with Display Port
  • Boot without GPU connected
  • BIOS flash

The configuration I am using is the following:

  • rog strix b650e-f gaming WIFI
  • AMD Ryzen 7 7800X3D (AM5)
  • be Quiet dark rock 5 pro CPU cooler
  • Kingston FURY 64 GB DDR5-6000 Kit (32gb x2)
  • GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 4070 EAGLE OC 12G
  • be quiet! Straight Power 11 Platinum 850W
  • be quiet pure base 500 case

I don't know what I am missing. Who can help me out? 

Thanks in advance!

Hello, @Daanvp 

May I inquire whether, when removing the GPU and using the iGPU, you can successfully POST and enter the system?
Could you please provide your current BIOS version, and have you cleared CMOS after updating the BIOS?
When you installed the GPU, did you use any adapters to connect to the slot? Have you cross-tested different PCIe slots?
If you installed it in the PCIEX16 slot, please ensure that the m.2_3 slot is not occupied.
