Same comment as Sagat, why the 5600g instead of the 5700g?
As you will run vms, 8 cores was a no brainer. Saving some $ with a B550 motherboard and then going 5700g would have been a good plan.
The ram should be at least ddr4-3200, but 3600 can be had for almost the same price.
As it does not support Windows 11, unless you got a killer used part deal, I would suggest as a minimum a 6 core cpu.
You still have to buy mobo / ram, so choose wisely.
You may find something in your budget with ryzen 2000+ or intel 8000/9000+ series.
EDIT : There is a good deal on a 10600k...
Hummm unless you tried to insert it without putting the yellow arrow at the good place, pins could have been bent already.
I don't see any other reason.
Somebody will surely give you a good advice for the next steps, as I never got this situation.
If you unplug everything and only use the keyboard, same results?
Could be something overheating (cpu / gpu), are the fans running well?
Did you try to remove the gpu and install windows with the igpu ?
If the ups died, it could send a false shutdown alert. Unplug the usb cable or disable / uninstall the network ups software.
If already done, maybe there's instability in the power and something in the server does not like it.
Is there another power outlet you can use? Can you bypass or...
I will probably sell the old ones, buy some used ryzen 2+ cpu / parts in the next 4 years.
At least, I can upgrade my 2400g to the 5000 series later.
I don't care much about Windows 11, it's about the planned obsolescence that Microsoft do like apple.
