Question Red CPU light

Apologies if I have posted this in the wrong thread - newbie here!
I recently bought a new PC and it was working fine until today. The monitor disconnected (HDMI no signal) and the USB ports stopped working. The red CPU light is on.
I have a Ryzen 3rd Gen CPU and a MSI Tomahawk Max motherboard, so I shouldn’t have to update the bios?
Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

That Red LED isn't necessarily for the CPU. That's just showing the system has power. Do the fans spin up?

Are you saying the plug isn't plugged in all the way, or are you saying that the wires have actually come loose from the plastic plug? It's hard to tell from the picture.
