Hey guys, so I just built my first computer, and when i turn it on everything appears to be running inside the machine, but my display only shows a black screen with a white cursor that appears for a second and then disappears. very occasionally, i'll get a way more brief than usual splash screen. the computer will not respond to keyboard commands, and simply jumps to a black screen immediately if i press something (making the arrow disappear faster than usual). I tried resetting the cmos, as that was recommended to me, but it didn't do anything (left the battery out for 30 minutes).
my hardware is as follows:
case: thermaltake versa h21
cpu: amd 8350
gpu: sapphire r9 280x vapor x tri x
psu: xfx 550w 80+bronze
storage: WD blue 1tb
memory: crucial ballistix sport 8gb (4gb x 2)
optical drive: samsung dvd drive
board: gigabyte ga-970a-d3p
I'm not able to access my bios, and don't currently have any operating system installed. Please help! Thanks!
