Z690 Plus WIFI D4 with MSI 3080 GPU. Would not post to BIOS first time round.
I had to de-rate the monitor from HDMI 2.1 to HDMI 1.4 to get it to post. After installing the NVIDIA drivers, I switched back to HDMI 2.1 and all was fine.
Teething troubles with new stuff.
Well, well, well. Very interesting...
And here I was, thinking it could be anything but the GPU itself!
Looks like this is not an isolated incident. I am also unable to visit the BIOS anymore, with a 4K monitor an the RTX 3060.
This is my current setup:
CPU i5 11400
CPU cooler: NOCTUA, NH-U12S, chromax.black
Motherboard: MSI Z590-A Pro
Video card: RTX 3060
RAM: 2 slots, 16 GB each (#2 and #4), Vengeance CMK16GX4M2D3000C16
PSU: Corsair 650W, 80 Plus Gold, Semi Modular, TX650M
CASE: Lancool 216 (Lian Li)
Monitor: LCD Acer XV280K-B (4K native)
Main SSD where Windows 11 is installed: WD_BLACK SN850X (2 TB NVME)
2nd SSD: Samsung 870 EVO, 4 TB
Plugged into the USB-C: External Blu-ray burner, ASUS SBW-06D5H-U
Everything with the latest version: SSDs, BIOS from the MB, GeForce drivers (which NVIDIA told me to remove completely and reinstall, didn't help)... The PC showed the BIOS again after I plugged into a 1080p TV... and it can't be the OS fault, because I received 2 new SSDs formatted, removed all partitions, and had to use the TV to install Windows 11 from my pendrive.
Any suggestions? I am also using the HDMI cable...
