Question Computer booting straight to bios after I swapped CPU..

Aug 1, 2021
So today I bought a Ryzen7 5800x. At first it wouldn’t work so I troubleshoot a few different things. Eventually I updated my BIOs with my old cpu and then swapped it back to the new one and it booted right up. But now I’m running into the issue that it won’t boot past bios and it’s not showing my M.2 as a boot drive… But still recognizes it when you look in the system configuration and also device test.. I’ve hit a brick wall on what to do next to fix this issue. I tried putting in my usb windows boot drive but it just shows a blurry screen and won’t go to bios. I’m out of option.

did you restore default settings in the bios after the booting the second CPU

Not sure how to restore them to default, but i've tried swapping my 2 m.2s and rehooking everything back up. I just put back in my old cpu and it booted up with 0 issues.
