Black Screen with a Massive Mouse?

Hello guys,
Mate of mine is having some problems,
Whenever the rig is turned on you get a black screen and a very big cursor but the thing won't move.
I have already tried a working stick of memory and clearing the CMOS, would try to flash the BIOS but I can't get in there to do it no matter what I try.

RIG SPECS
AMD Athlon 860K
Gigabyte FM2+ A88X-D3H R3.0
8GB 1600Mhz
XFX R9 270X
EVGA 550W G2
Win 10
Anyone got any ideas?
Cheers.

Hey there,

I'm a bit confused. When does the cursor appear? When loading windows or during post? Because if the problem is during windows you shouldn't have any problem flasing the bios however I find it impossible for a cursor to appear during post...

It's appearing right after the splash screen.

No speaker connected unfortunately.
I have removed the CMOS battery and that never worked either.

Deffo seems to be a failed BIOS, do you have access to an older AM2 processor to check it?

Ok is this a new build or the issue just started?

Actually dont bother remove gfx as there is no gfx in that chipset so will need gfx card or APU sorry for duff info there

Check the 8 pin power is seated correctly in the motherboard.
Check the motherboard standoffs are in the correct place.
Check the gfx card is fully seated home with ALL the required power connected.
Check the Ram is in the correct slot if only 1 stick it needs to be in the 1st blue slot nearest the CPU.
Check CPU is seated correctly and no bent pins.
Check the front panel connectors are correctly seated with correct orientation.
