Hi all, thanks in advance. I am building a PC to run the Oculus Rift, and can't get it to POST. After pressing the 'on' button, I get power LED, all fans spinning, but no video output or beeps. There is a white light on the GPU. If I take out the GPU I get 5 long beeps after a few seconds of turning it on.

Components:
CPU AMD Ryzen 5 1600
GPU Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 3GB
Mobo ASRock AB350M Pro4 (AM4)
Storage Seagate Barracuda 1TB HDD
PSU Corsair CX650
RAM Team Elite 8GB DDR4-2400
Case Corsair Carbide 100R


Things I've tried:
- Everything in the "Perform These Steps First" thread over at Tom's Hardware
- Checked the BIOS version, P2.40 (which supports my CPU)
- Swapping out the PSU - no change. (Also checked my PSU's voltages with a multimeter - all pins are functioning in the right range)
- If I pull everything except the CPU and the HSF, I get 3 short beeps. (Main memory read / write test error according to the ASRock FAQ page) If I add the memory, I get 5 long beeps (No VGA card). If I add the GPU, I get no beeps.
- Replacing the motherboard - no change

My next thought would be to try replacing the GPU, but I obviously don't want to have to go through that if I don't have to.
Wat do?

Any and all suggestions are appreciated! I can pay you back in compliments, Internet friendship, and pictures of my pet guinea pigs.

There is no post beep on this motherboard, I have the same one.

Make sure you have your GPU secured and plugged in and make sure your HDMI cable is plugged into your GPU rather than the motherboard as the Ryzen chips dont have on board APU's

Dont worry i had a similar issue myself as i didnt know there was not a POST beep on the motherboard though I did have a error with using the wrong ram sticks due to BIOS limitations at the time.

I had the HDMI plugged into the mobo because I didn't realize it would make any difference. I really appreciate it! Guinea pigs, as promised :P
