Can't view bios using monitor...

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Am using samsung monitor connected to gtx680 via hdmi cable. Running windows 7 64 bit. Whenever I reboot the computer, i do not see the bios or the post screen. Is there a way to fix this? Thanks for any advice.

Are you sure the monitor is not cycling through the different sources when it's starting up or rebooting? Try hitting the key that enables you to go into BIOS (whatever it may be for your motherboard) and wait for a few seconds. It may appear when the correct source is enabled.

Some monitors are just too slow to detect which source is active, especially digital sources. If you have it connected through VGA it will detect it on time ad will allow you to see the post screen.

If you want it connected through HDMI, your only option is to hit the key that allows you to enter the Bios (check your motherboard manual) until you get it right. After it is in the Bios, it will come on.

It's unfortunate that in 2012 some monitors still do this, but it seems like it's a fact.

Press reboot your PC.
Hold down "delete" key.
Change "quick boot" setting in bios to "disabled".
Maybe diagnostic boot or something along those lines too. Just to prolong that POST time. If that is what you really want.

So you recommend i use vga instead of hdmi? It's a 2012 model monitor i doubt it's 'too slow' or whatever, it only has one dvi and hdmi at the back though but my vga cable has vga to dvi connector.

yes, use VGA, Happens to me all the time, DVI too slow to detect or something like that. A DVI to VGA adapter would work.

nah, it's not about the monitor being slow, it's the resolution incompatibility, my previous monitor does this when i'm using an hdmi connection, even if you press the DEL key rapidly and your computer actually enters the BIOS you still won't gonna be able to see it, specifically the UEFI, no problem with the old school BIOS. only solution is change the connection other than HDMI
