Question Black screen when trying to access BIOS ?

Feb 14, 2021

I have a very bizzare problem. I built a brand new computer, but used one of my the old gpus that I had laying around, an XFX RX 580. With that gpu I could access my motherboard's bios just fine.

Now I had to replace my XFX with a Sapphire Pulse RX580 because apparently the XFX uses a custom bios that isn't supported for Hackintosh while the Sapphire is supposed to work perfectly.

Which brings me to the actual problem.Since I've swapped the XFX for the Sapphire, I can't access my MB's bios I get presented with a black screen. This is very strange since it's essentially the same card and every other component is exactly the same.

I've spent dozens of hours searching the web trying to find a solution to no avail.

System :
  • Windows 10
  • Ryzen 3900x
  • RX 580 Sapphire Pulse
  • 2 nvme ssd
  • 32gb of gskill ram
  • B550 MSI Tomohawk Motherboard
