I am attempting to access the bios to turn on XMP as I realized it was off. When restarting my PC, I am unable to reach the bios, it just boots straight through to Windows. I turned off fast boot in power options, and when I attempt to do an advanced restart to reach UEFI settings, the computer turns off, and when it turns on there is no video output, only the lights turning on and fans spinning. It is stuck this way with no output or sound until I power off and power on again, at which point it boots directly into Windows. Any suggestions would be great, google has got me nowhere with this.

Is the monitor connected to the graphics card or the motherboard ports? (If you have a CPU with integrated graphics?)

The monitor is connected to the graphics card, unfortunately I do not have integrated graphics. I have tried several of the ports on my graphics card though, HDMI and each of the display ports, I cannot try the DVI port as I do not have a cable or monitor to use it. Appreciate the welcome.

I figured it out, my monitor did not accept the video format the BIOS was using, apparently some monitors are like that. Once I plugged in a different monitor it booted normally and was able to get to the bios screen
