    Asrock X570 Phantom gaming 4 bios loop


    I had someone give me an asrock x570 phantom gaming 4, i assembled everything outside the case,
    with Ryzen 3 2300x cpu, one stick or ram and gpu. It boots into the bios screen, then after about 5 seconds
    it powers off and restarts. It stays on a continous loop after that. Could it be a corrupted bios?
    Thanks for any help.

    Sounds more like a hardware issue.
    Something hooked up incorrectly, CPU fan plugged into the wrong motherboard connector, inadequate thermal paste, incorrect case front panel connectors hook up, etc.

    The one stick of RAM should be in the 2nd slot, counting away from the CPU to the right.


    Motherboard User Manual, get the "Global" version...

    RED = Where to put your one stick of RAM
    BLUE = where to plug in the CPU fan (air cooling)
    GREEN = other connectors you should double check.


    When troubleshooting a motherboard... only hook up the CPU fan, the two power connectors, the front panel (case) connectors, and the vid card... leave everything else unconnected.
    You should be able to get into the BIOS and not have the computer in a restart loop.

    Motherboard is outside the case, tried ram in all slots, just the basic hardware plugged in.

    See what I added to the post above.
    Do not hook up things like SSDs or hard drives, USB, audio, any RGB lighting, etc.

    Make sure there is nothing on the CMOS jumper (#19). Save the jumper (if there), but take it OFF.

    Make sure the motherboard is resting on the motherboard box, or some other non conducting surface.

    On the Front Panel connector (#18)... only hook up the power switch.
    If you have doubts about the case power switch...
    you can just use a flat blade screwdriver to short those two pins (RED box).

    Make sure you leave the CMOS jumper OFF.
    The computer will never start while it's ON the jumpers.

    I was just double checking.
    It's just a tiny plastic housing jumper for shorting those pins.
    A lot of people don't even notice it.
