So i think my gpu does not support secure boot and i accidentally enabled it in the bio and now i m getting blank screen and no console input devices found error(even with cmos reset) so i m planning to disable the setting myself by directly connecting my motherboard hdmi to it and going to bios. so is it safe to use that slot while my gpu is inside the pci slot?

yes it is safe.
eyes open. you MAY need to remove the GPU to enable the onboard.
it is safe to try, if nothing try removing the GPU then try again.

if its a BIOS setting clearing the CMOS will reset everything to defaults and should allow you to continue.
