HI, i've just built my first PC. I am unable to boot up since i can't chose a which device too boot from. When trying to access the boot-menu i just get a black screen with a white cursor. Also when i try to access the bios menu it just freezes when i click on 'settings'.

My specs:

AMD A10-6790K 4.0GHz Quad-Core Processor MSI A55M-E33 Micro ATX FM2+ Motherboard Kingston Beast 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-2400 MemoryEdimax EW-7612PIn 802.11b/g/n PCI-Express x1 Wi-Fi Adapter Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive Asus Radeon R7 260X 2GB DirectCU II Video Card Aerocool Xpredator X1 Case

Do you get any beeps after you power up? First thoughts are that you have either a graphics card problem (try re-seating it) or a RAM problem (try one stick at a time).
