For the build I have
ryzen 3 1300x
16gb of ballistics sports ram
MSI rx 580
and the Asus tuf b450m plus

after installing the motherboard I tried to get into the bios to reinstall windows onto a new SSD I bought. At the moment I am getting no output from my video card or motherboard HDMI. I have tried moving the ram from slot to slot and moved to a single stick of ddr4 to test each slot on its own. But after about an hour of testing, I can't get any video output from it and am now looking for help.

Gee whiz people. The 1300x does NOT have a built-in IGPU. This is a Ryzen not a typical Intel CPU. I would bet on the motherboard being bad after all the steps you've taken. The Ryzen boards have terribad quality control and it afflicts all brands.

The motherboard is having the RGB, and all the other lights and fans spin on, and the USB keyboard is lighting up with its lights so I thought that the likely hood of it being faulty was low

I had ryzen boards where the fancy LEDs would light up and fans was spinning, but nothing else was working. No beeps, nothing. The RGB lights are basically uncontrolled and will light up just because there is power.

I had a motherboard that seemed to work fine, but was spitting out ram errors and wouldn't post. I thought it was the RAM, but I eventually found out it was the mobo. No real way to tell.
EDIT: Didn't see that it was the GPU being the problem, but mobo can cause errors to spit out for various other components just my $0.02
