Weird PC boot issue

I've tried everything. I tried resetting my cmos to no avail. I checked all my connections (disassembled my whole rig ffs) and then rebuilt to no avail. Regardless of what I've tried, whenever i try to access the bios when my pc is starting up, my mouse and keyboard light up but my display shows nothing (ive tried multiple displays and connection ports on my graphics card). PC has no problems letting it boot normally, enters windows 10 no problemo, plays games just fine.

Help, my ram is stuck at 2133 out of its rated 3200 ;-;

EDIT: Monitor remains off (no "no signal" message just no display)

Dont know if this is related, but when the pc is booting, the keyboard+mouse+display light up, then turn off and then the system boots (lighting up everything).

System Specs:

Cpu-Ryzen 5 1600

Gpu- MSI Gaming x gtx 1070

Ram- 16gb (2x8gb) DDR4 3200mhz Corsair vengeance lpx

PSU- Corsair RM750x

Mobo-MSI x370 krait gaming

Cooler- Stock amd wraith

SSD- m.2 WD blue 250gb

HDD-Salvaged 500gb hard drive (only for steam games)

Display- Samsung 24" CFG70 Curved Gaming Monitor 144hz

  1. This line: C:\Windows\System32\shutdown.exe /r /fw should reboot windows into BIOS/UEFI, once you reach it try finding "USB Legacy Mode" and that should fix problems with non working KB and mouse.

    Hi CountMike! Thank you for providing an answer to my issue. Sadly, when i run the command you provided my pc restarts, but once again there is a lack of display output.
    Would you like me to upload a video of the boot sequence when trying to access the bios?

    P.S.
    I'd like to say that neither the keyboard of mouse experience any issues, both working fine.
  3. All that proves that GPU is not initializing while in BIOS. Did you try resetting BIOS/CMOS ?
    Monitor 144Hz ? Can you control it that so it starts at 70Hz ? Maybe try in another PCIe slot ? Is there any SW like Afterburner ro change some things in BIOS ?

    Yes my monitor is 144hz ill try lowering the frame rate. I tried resetting cmos but last time i tried was a while ago so ill give it another shot. Ill also try changing the pcie slot. Also, yes I have afterburner and running a lovely little oc on my gpu.

    Ill get back to you after trying your methods
