What monitor are you using, over what connection? There's a possibility this may influence the way it is displaying. Has the same monitor displayed the BIOS screen fully in the past?

Well, it's not giving us much to go on, but it's not uncommon for a TV to overscan, which means the edges of the image go off the screen.

What is the model of the monitor/TV?

With some, you have to use a specific input or set a menu option to use PC mode, which does not overscan.

According to the illustrations in the manual:

https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/support/970-GAMING#down-manual

the BIOS screen is 4:3 resolution, so if it looks like this image in the center of the TV screen, that would be normal:

A 4:3 image on a widescreen TV that maps pixels one-to-one will have black on either side. If what you see is different, a reasonable resolution image taken with a digital camera or phone would help to identify what is happening.
 
For the image going black, in my experience it has most commonly been either a poor HDMI cable or a weak contact in one or other end where the cable plugs in. Sometimes unplugging both ends and firmly re-inserting the plug clears it up. Otherwise, to be sure whether it is the cable, monitor or computer (drivers, video card etc), you need to be able to try known good alternatives. If you can borrow the use of another cable and monitor and see if it still happens, that would tell you where the problem exists.

Then it seems most likely to be something to do with using a TV as a monitor - the best way to be sure would be to borrow a different monitor from friend or relative and see if it shows the BIOS correctly.

Otherwise, if we can know the model number of the TV, we might be able to find out something about it, if there is a menu setting or something like that to make it behave differently.

It's not impossible, but fairly unlikely.
