    I newly built a pc with
    MSI B450 TOMAHAWK
    Ryzen 2700x
    16x2GB Corsair Vengeance ram
    GTX 1060 6GB
    I first tried to install windows 7 yesterday failed. I got into bios with windows 10 today and it was all broken. resolution was lowest and texts started overlapping. It even froze occasionally. I somehow went through and installed windows 10 today. Everything was fine after untill it installed graphics driver. My monitor suddenly went blank. No signal detected it says. I restarted pc. Monitor works fine until I log into Windows. Also, my pc shuts down and restarts whenever I ender M-Flash mode to update (re-install) bios. And exits M-Flash mode.
    I tried:
    resetting motherboard
    another pc (that I was using before and somehow got same monitor problem)
    another monitor
    new DVI cable
    uninstall graphics
    plugged out and plugged in ram, battery and graphics card. Tried them on different slot too.
    I attached a pic of bios.

    Go into Safe Mode and uninstall that graphics driver you are using. Win 10 then would use the basic drive with low resolution. Then go to the web site of the graphics card vendor and download the latest driver. Install that one and see what happens.

    If you didn't use the latest Oct/Nov 2018 release of Win 10, then try that.

    It's not a driver problem, no driver is loaded when you go into the Bios.

    Try resetting the Cmos/Bios using the jumper on the motherboard.
