Hi,
I upgraded from my CPU from a Ryzen 5 1600 to a 3600 and updated my BIOS from 3.40 to 7.00 accordingly. However, afterwards it would not POST with my 2 RAM modules installed. After I removed one module, it would boot.

Using 2 Crucial Ballistix BLT8G4d26AFTA.16FBD.

I figured I might as well update to 7.20 since I don't have Bristol Ridge and it includes an AGESA update. But now it won't even post with one module, so it appears I bricked myself.

According to https://forum.asrock.com/forum_posts.asp?TID=24697&title=asrock-x370-killer-sli-ac-bios-update-to-support-5" rel="nofollow - this thread , setting the RAM frequency manually might get it to post including with 2 modules. But I need to try borrowing different RAM modules first to even try that.

Thanks for reading.

Try resetting the CMOS.
Boot the computer a few times, after if fails it might use a backup copy of the BIOS.
I would contact ASRock support.

Thanks. Tried removing CMOS battery already and let it loop a few minutes, no avail unfortunately. Considering a support ticket, but the board is years old.

Doesn't hurt to ask.
I asked them a BIOS question about my 3+ years old board and they helped me.

ASRock are really good with supporting older products typically. I submitted
a ticket for a socket 775 board from around 2010 and received assistance a few
years ago.
