Upgraded CPU and motherboard, pc acting weird

I upgraded my cpu from an i5 6500 to a Ryzen 2700x and MSI b450 tomahawk max motherboard. Before the upgrade I had no issues whatsoever. However now my computer has been acting weird. Every time I turn it on it won't output to the display until I turn it off and on again with the case power button and I've had a few times where the whole pc lags a little i.e. just on Windows desktop background, and the screen will flick off and on. I'm thinking it might be a dodgy motherboard? However I'm not entirely sure.

Thanks

clean install Windows 10

Morgan123 is quite right, if you just moved your old installation/HDD to a new PC it'll have issues with the new hardware due to drivers, kernel, et cetera. You need to do a fresh install so that Windows recognizes the new hardware and installs the right drivers for that particular hardware set.

Or you could go back to your old hardware.

When you switched over, I assume you installed/updated all of the proper drivers? Did you delete the ones from your Intel setup?
