Question Keyboard/mouse LEDs won’t switch on without working GPU upon pc switch on

Jul 13, 2020
Hi, my GPU recently died and whilst I was realising this, I noticed that without a functioning GPU, my keyboard and mouse LEDs will not switch on for more than a split second when i turn the PC on.

I was wondering if it was just because of a lack of GPU preventing boot/BIOS or potentially a deeper issue

The rest of the PC works fine, fans turn on etc.

Motherboard: MSI B450M Pro-m2
