My brand new build turns on, but my monitor says no signal.

My cpu is the Ryzen 3700x, but it's incompatible with my mobo until the bios is updated so I have installed a AMD Athlon 200GE temporarily. The PC turns on and everything works, there is no EZ Debug LED on, but my monitor is saying no signal.

I know it's not the monitor because it displays my laptop through the hdmi cord. That also rules out my hdmi cord.

I have gone through this troubleshooting list except for the part about the speaker because I don't have one. The HD Audio port is broken on my case so I couldn't hear beeps if they were to go off.

What's wrong with my pc?!

Suggestion #17 has a picture of the case speaker and it usually costs $5 on amazon. These are invaluable when it comes to troubleshooting a problem. The case speaker has nothing to do with the Integrated Audio ports. This is a separate speaker that usually plugs into a 4-pin header that's near where you plug in the case headers.

I take it you tried the Integrated Graphics port? What were the results when you tried the iGPU. The dedicated card will need to be physically uninstalled for the iGPU to work.

Have you contacted MSI about your issue? It looks like you're at the point of either returning the board or calling MSI.

With these service issues, you will need to call them, don't email MSI unless it's for the purpose of creating a support ticket.

I'll order a case speaker. I tried the iGPU with the card uninstalled to no avail. I've been at this for hours so I'm taking a break for the night but I will call them first thing tomorrow.

Before you try using the beep speaker, you'll need to find out the beep codes that are unique to MSI motherboards. For the most part, a successful boot is one short beep with most motherboard brands. No beep at all means the BIOS isn't initializing.
