    I just finished building a PC and I Messed up the boot sequence. I do not yet have windows loaded onto this machine. When the machine starts my monitor is saying "no signal". not sure if BIOS is load and i cant see it or its just not loading anything. Have tried using onboard Graphics as well as GPU. Tested line using xbox and cable works.

    Changed from;
    1: Hard Disk
    2: CD/DVD
    3: Samsung 850 Evo

    1: Samsung 850 Evo

    3: Hard Disk

    I have tried several different ways try reset the CMOS from just general unhook power, remove battery, and drain power using power button to Unhooking power, remove battery, Disconnect power supply, drain power, wait an hour before hookng back up. I do not see a CMOS jumper or reset switch.

    The exact process for clearing the CMOS should be covered in the User Manual for the motherboard.

    I suspect you have more wrong that the boot order, otherwise you would simply be getting a boot drive not found or other boot issue.
