Never mind it tried again and it restarted but nothing changed
 


It means that the system does access the BIOS, but the resolution is not supported by your monitor/ TV.
If using the HDMI, try a different port (DVI or VGA).

CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB @1866
SAPPHIRE VAPOR-X R9 290
CORSAIR 850W PSU

This System VS Last System is that i was using a DVI to HDMI to my TV but now im using a HDMI to HDMI.

Im going to power off and try the DVI cable like my last setup had. Ill update after I try it.

No luck, tried my DVI to HDMI that i used on my last system and still did the same thing.
I see a cursor for a quarter of a second and blackness.

My GPU is the Sapphire Vapor-X R9 290

I have a support ticket in with Gigabyte, Ill update when I hear anything.

I know this is old but, I have a really old monitor that might not support the Bios resolution, I will try another but why would the monitor not having the right resolution make the BIOS not come on
