Won’t post to bios even after resetting cmos

So while playing Valorant last night, after installing a new cpu cooler, I loaded up hyper x controller software to mess with the lighting on my ram. After I got done with the effects and tried to alt-tab back into Valorant my pc froze. Got stuck in a power loop. 
Now I’ve tried just about everything from pulling 2/4 sticks of my ram at a time. Shuffling ram slots, clearing rtc, clearing cmos.
tried unplugging my boot drive so the only chance was getting into bios. 
 

at this point I’ve now completely removed my Rx590 from the Asus tuf x570 and I don’t know what I should be troubleshooting next. 
 

the closest I’ve gotten to boot is it will cycle a few times from “dram-cpu-vga-dram-cpu-vga/boot” and then the light for vga and boot both stay on and I don’t get any signal on my monitors.

I also should mention I have a D.O.C.P enabled in bios

If you cleared cmos this should no longer be enabled.

Be sure the bios is at defaults and try to boot.

 

Also, i dont know what this means "cycle a few times from “dram-cpu-vga-dram-cpu-vga/boot”"

Can you clarify whats happening when you try to boot?

A video maybe even if possible.

How do I make sure my bios is set to default without having access to it? I tried to get a video of it cycling though the different lights(dram-cpu-vga-dram-cpu-vga/boot)but now I can’t get past an inssue with DRAM again. I’ve now gone as far as reseating my cpu and just leaving my graphics card out of the system. I can’t upload a video because the one I have of it is too large and I’m just on my phone

ok, did you get your bios reset by chance?

There is usually a jumper on the mobo.

Or simply disconnect power to the system, find the battery on the mobo (almost always a CR2032 watch style) and remove the battery.

With the battery out and power disconnected, push the power button for 5 seconds.

Then put the battery back, plug in the power, and test.
