I have to reset CMOS every time so my machine will show a display

Go to solution Solved by Guest,

The board probably needs a bios update. 

Hi,

 

I just built my new pc with new everything except for my GPU. Now every time I turn it on, it powers up, fans are spinning, GPU fan is spinning, GPU has light, but there is no display. My motherboard's debug LED has a white light on VGA. I have tried reseating my GPU and verifying that cables are tightly plugged in, but issue still persists. To resolve the issue, I have to stick a screwdriver in JBAT1 header in the motherboard (I believe this is to clear CMOS and reset BIOS) every time. When I do this, and presses the power button, my machine powers up for few seconds, then it turns off, and then turns on again, this time without any issues.

 

I just don't think this is normal for a new computer. Any ideas why it happens? Is my GPU failing? This was working in my old computer :(.

I know you checked whether the cables were properly seated, but did you check to see if the Power button cables were plugged into the right headers?

It's entirely possible that I misinterpreted/misread your topic and/or question. This happens more often than I care to admit. Apologies in advance.

Yup, verified this.

After trying this, so far problem has not occurred. Updated via MSI center and seems like my version was really far from the latest. Thanks!
