    Have you tried a simple USB keyboard? I have found that sometimes the fancy gaming keyboards may not always work when trying to get into the BIOS. If you've tried that and it doesn't help, the next thing I would try is a clear CMOS (check the motherboard manual for instructions).

    Some things to add as of 2021: 1. It's a good idea to change the default file location for game-recording software's temporary files. For example, if you use GeForce Experience Instant Replay, it needs to constantly write lots of video data to a temporary location. By default, this is on your C drive - and constant writes to your nice expensive NVMe is a no-no. Move that temp folder to a thicc hard disk or something. 2. Go to Settings > Mouse > Additional mouse options > Pointer Options, and uncheck "Enhance pointer precisions". This is mouse pointer acceleration, and it makes FPS gaming unplayable. It is on by default. Turn dat off. 3. I like to go to "Add or remove programs" and uninstall all the bloatware I won't use. I never play Solitaire, I don't use Skype, I don't use OneDrive, etc etc etc. Begone bloatware. 4. Install HWInfo. It's a great place to see all your temps and keep tabs on component performance. Other than that, Jay was spot on.

    This is a great foundation to set up a new build. How about a 102 class now? Questions I still have are: *what drive should I put things on for best performance (m.2, SSD, HDD) and how do you do that? *should I overclock my CPU? If so, how, and to what level? Is this something new should do or is this something only a professional should attempt? How safe is it? *any other tips and tricks you may have with setting up an install. The information you provided about Windows was some of the most helpful for me.

    Do you get any video? If not, then that most likely means there's something wrong with the POST, or Power On Self-Test. If your PC doesn't pass POST, it may not display any video and may constantly reboot. You'll have to do some troubleshooting to figure out what's going on. I would start by double checking every single component, even if it seems trivial.

    You will most likely need to install the network card drivers for your motherboard. On a working PC with internet, go to the manufacturer's page, look up the drivers for your specific board model and download the network drivers. Transfer them to a USB drive and install them on your newly built system.

    @MasterGreenS That most likely means that you don't have the network card drivers installed. Windows 10 has a lot of generic drivers for a wide range of hardware, but sometimes it just doesn't have what you specifically need built-in. In that case, you will need to use another computer with internet to download the drivers for your network card from the motherboard's page. Transfer them to a USB drive and install them on your new system. That should get you up and running.
