Question Why can't I display my BIOS!?

May 23, 2019
Short and simple story is, my bios will not display at all. The first thing I see on my monitor is the windows log in screen. If i button mash 'DEL' to enter the BIOS, the screen will stay black.

Motherboard: MSI B350 Tomahawk
CPU: Ryzen 1600x
Graphics: Gigabyte 1080 ti extreme

I've tried clearing the CMOS, booting with one stick of RAM, to no avail.
Missing information:

The monitor is ???
Cable used to connect to monitor is?
The Windows installation is holdover from a previous PC Build or a newly installed Windows 10 installation?

Based on the information you have listed, it is possible the monitor is not capable of displaying the proper BIOS resolution.

Is there a reason you choose to do the Windows 10 installation in legacy mode?
