Hello

I just completed building my PC yesterday. However, I'm having a problem with getting the BIOS to display after I connect my Video card into the PCIEX16 slot (First Slot). When I turn the power on, I get a black screen for a few seconds and Windows 10 automatically boots up. From what I gather, there is no issue with my PSU since I am re-using it from my old PC that was working fine and no issue with the graphics card since it was working well when I connected it to my old PC. I tried putting my old GTX970 to this new motherboard and I encounter the same problem.

  1. GTX970 to RTX 2070 Super
  2. I7-3770k to I7-9700K
  3. 8GB of Ram to 16 GB of Ram
  4. Asus P8Z77-V Mother board to GigaByte Z390 AORUS PRO WIFI
Interestingly enough, I am able to boot into the BIOS when I take the video card out. I was also able to boot into the BIOS when I connect the video card into the PCIEX8 Slot (Second slot). I've already installed the latest BIOS (Version F12C) and Nvidia Drivers (Version 441.87).

Was wondering if anyone had any advice on this. Is there a problem with the motherboard?

Here are the specs of my new build below.

MB: Z390 AORUS PRO WIFI
BIOS Version: F12C
CPU: i7-9770K
GPU: EVGA RTX 2070 Super XC Gaming
PSU: Seasonic X-850 850W 80 Plus Gold
RAM: 2x Corsair vengeance LPX 16 GB DDR4-3200 Memory
CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D14
Storage: Samsung 970 Evo Plus 1 TB M.2 SSD

Thanks

Try shift clicking restart, going into troubleshoot and go to UEFI firmware settings. This should boot into BIOS.

Make sure fast boot is disabled :)
