Hey all, I've got an issue with a custom build that I could use help on.
I put this video editing build together about 9 months ago and it has working fine until recently when I decided to switch my Ryzen 1700 for the new 2700X. No matter what I do, I can't get anything to display on either of my screens; no post, no UEFI, no nothing. The parts list of the original build is at the bottom of this post.
I got the 2700X and was excited to switch it in. I didn't think to check what I needed to do first and hadn't updated the BIOS in a while. I turned off the PC & unscrewed the old cooler to access the 1700. When I pulled out the cooler, the 1700 came with it, which made me nervous, but no pins were missing. Then I put the 2700X in and the computer started up (I had forgotten to unplug it), so I turned it off quickly. Then I installed the new cooler & started up the PC, but nothing came up on either screen. I switched to the onboard HDMI to see if that worked; no luck. I switched monitors; no luck.
So I removed the 2700X & put the 1700 back in place. Mind you, with all this switching, I was getting a bit of thermal paste on my hands, but trying to make sure to keep it off the pins. Started it up and the same issue. Also in the process, I found that 3 pins on the 1700 and 1 on the 2700X had been bent pretty drastically. I straightened them out and tested them again, making sure to seat them gently. No luck.
I've tried removing the GPU (1050ti), reseating the memory, switching the memory, reseating all cables, removing all usb cables (except keyboard/mouse), shorting CMOS clear pins, removing CMOS battery, and more, but I'm getting no luck.
This is my only editing rig and right now it's holding up completing projects for clients. I'm also wasting my Father's Day trying to get this figured out.
I'd appreciate any help you guys can offer. Thank you.
