Hello! I just built my first pc and everything was great, finally got to the point of installing windows and my monitor seems to lose signal. It does this with the hdmi and DisplayPort cables directly from my graphics card, I’ve tried multiple monitors, updates my bios, tried 1 stick of ram in either slot and the same thing happens. My processor has no integrated graphics, so aside from that I’m lost.
Ryzen 5 3600xt
Msi 1660 super
Msi b550m bazooka motherboard

And the monitor works fine when in bios it only loses signal when I go to install windows from the usb ( have also tried two different usb) thanks!

possible that your 1660 is not natively supported...
my suggestion...
borrow a gpu from a different system (or a friend)
install windows using the borrowed gpu...
update...
download and unzip drivers for YOUR 1660 (into " C:\Windows\System32\drivers " folder) ...
shut down ,
swap graphics cards,
reboot...
If it still blacks out, then after boot is complete (should be able to hear it reach idle)
press ctrl+alt+del twice to restart but before the PC restarts and until it powers back up, hold the shift key
(this forces windows recovery tools to load so that the unzipped drivers can be manually installed)
