I am running v9 of the Bios.
CPUz sees 16, no idea what to do. Bios settings are all stock.
Any idea where I can check next?
Some stupid questions, just because I've gone through this before and you didn't provide details.
1. is it an actual monitor or a TV you're using as monitor?
2. is there an alignment button or feature you can use? I know hdmi isn't supposed to need it but perhaps in this case it may help.
3. i notice you're using video cards, could you perhaps try on the onboard video, just to see if it may be something with the cards vs. the board?
Initially for some reason during the bios phase my smaller lcd didn't auto line up, which was new to me because in every other system it did - the difference is that mine is using the vga port, hdmi is supposed to self-align.
Also, re: the USB - I think it show UD3H in that pic which I have as well. The VIA USB are notoriously tricky inside of windows. You MUST install drivers to use them once it gets into Windows. You can use them at the BIOS screen to get in, probably 100% every time but once inside windows the 4 USB (not under the LAN) will not work natively. The Intel ones will work (the ones under the LAN port) in Windows but there's a 50/50 chance they won't work at the BIOS screen. I don't know why.
So the best thing to do is to keep it on the Intel port until you have the Windows driver installed and then move it to the VIA port. I moved mine to the VIA port to the left of my LAN port and it's worked fine there. Either way, the ports are tricky and I can't use more than 2 of them without problems. There's a new driver available for the VIA USB 3 on the GB website. I can't use it since I'm on Windows 8.Edited by neoprimal - 8/8/12 at 8:07am
