Hello,

I recently installed an EVGA FTW3 RTX 3070 in my PC. I was able to run the BIOS using the DisplayPort, however it does not respond when I try to boot the system normally. It still works when I plug it in through my motherboard. My HDMI connection works, so I have no idea why the DisplayPort does not work properly. I also tried to update the NVidia drivers too. For reference, I am using a Gigabyte Z690 Gaming X DDR4 motherboard.

Thanks :)

As an update, I tried switching out the motherboard to a MSI Pro Z690-A DDR4 motherboard, and I still have the same issue with the DisplayPort. The connection works fine through the graphics card in the BIOS, but it just does not work when I am running the PC normally. I am not sure if this is the issue, but I found that some of the metal contacts might be damaged? I am not sure but I included some photos here:
