I putting together a new PC - I've only put in place the motherboard, cpu and ram - power-on starts the fans running but I see no video output from the on-board graphics card - is the motherboard broken? Am I missing something?
At the moment I have: - Motherboard: PRIME B450M-A/CSM (https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/wW66Mp/asus-prime-b450m-acsm-micro-atx-am4-motherboard-prime-b450m-acsm) - CPU: AMD - Ryzen 5 2600 3.4GHz 6-Core Processor - Power: Corsair - TXM Gold 750W 80+ Gold Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply - RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) (https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0134EW7G8/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1)
I was expecting to see output from the motherboard complaining that there's no boot options or just some opening BIOS screen - but nothing appears (the numlock key is highlighted on the keyboard).
The Ryzen processor does have written on it - "discrete graphics card needed" - does this mean the on-board graphics SHOULDN'T work, and everything's OK?
