    Put a new CPU in and it all worked perfectly. Quite unbelievable, but there you go.

    Now all i have to do is RMA the CPU and I've got a second PC sat in the office with all the replacement parts!!!

    Thanks for the advice and encouragement on here which was much appreciated.

    Wow. A doa ryzen 2600. Didn't see that coming. Its funny how we are all programmed to test everything else first because cpus hardly ever die. Enjoy the pc

    CPU's are just about bulletproof so usually the last thing you would expect to fail.
