Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H boot splash screen is wonky, when I hit Del, the screen goes blank, no BIOS

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I asked thisalmost 24 hrs. ago in the Gigabyte Z77X thread, but as yet have received no response, so I'm asking more broadly.

"I'm scratching my head here... When I boot up (UD5H), the boot splash screen is wonky. Not messed up, just too big for the screen (can't see anything but the center), and when I hit Del, the screen goes blank, and nothing happens (visually). It just stays that way. I just updated the Intel graphics driver, and I currently have no GPU installed. After updating, I rebooted four times, and still the same issue. I noticed before that it took a couple of reboots to correct this, after the initial build (after windows install, after GB driver disk install), I even rolled back the driver in windows, but to no avail. So, I reinstalled the latest update, and figured I'd ask here. Any suggestions?"

It's posting and booting fine - I'm using it to make this post. Confused as heck! mad.gif

Try removing the CMOS battery (with PSU off)

It might be a faulty battery that is corrupting your BIOS

I'll give that a try, and let you know... thanks!

Well, that didn't go as well as expected - Now I have nothing. Have tried clearing CMOS, unhooking everything, left the battery out for about a half an hour. Code on board is A9 which is "Bios Setup is started". Tried [esc]-[enter]. [esc]-[dn arrow]-[enter], [F7]-[enter], [F7]-[dwn arrow]-[enter]. the screen is black - can't tell what I'm doing, or even if I really am in Bios setup. Monitor is getting signal (indicator led). So now I'm really lost Help?

reflash your BIOS, update or just reflash, but in my opinion update it. I am pretty sure this means the ME firmware is corrupt on the board and needs to be reflashed, a BIOS flash will do this.

I would say ok to this, but I have no video. Board posts, single beep, then board codes A9 ("Bios Setup is started"), but the screen is black - monitor is getting signal, but I can not get out of BIOS to do anything. ???

yea very annoying. I would do a very big clear CMOS and also try using the dual BIOS switch and single BIOS mode switch.

First try the dual BIOS to change to the backup
Then try with single BIOS mode on the main and then on the backup
Then take out the battery and unplug all power and clear the CMOS with the jumper and keep the jumper shorted for like 30 seconds.
Also what happens if you let it sit at A9? Do you have any USb drives or anything?

Sorry about the time it took for an update.
I was up ALL night. Couldn't get into BIOS, - everytime I hit the key to go into it, the screen just went black... Was getting signal from the machine, cause the led on the monitor was green, and it turns yellow when there's no signal. After posting here and a couple others using my old computer, PedroC1999 suggested I remove the battery. Made sense - a weak battery can corrupt the BIOS, so I did - and cleared the cmos. Same $hit different day. Someone finally asked if it happened if I put in a seperate video card. I forgot I even had one. So - I put it in, and voila! I could see again! OK - so I go into BIOS and load the system defaults (factory reset). Everything looks great. Except now there's a windows issue (oh? that's surprising!) It attempts to fix itself for about an hour, and I've had all I can take, so I have to make a bootable USB installer for widows (because I've erased that to make a motherboard driver USB. This takes like (NOT kidding 2.5 hours!) USB 1 speeds being what they are (old computer). Re-install windows, and now... I have to erase the USB, and remake the motherboard driver install. Again with the 2+ hours. And the windows install took like 45 mins. Ok - load up the mobo drivers... get online, and download the latest BIOS, flash my BIOS - just in case. Great! put everything back the way it was - take out the spare video card, and plug the monitor in the integrated, (cause the card I have cost $20 about 6 years ago - you can figure out how wonderful that is). The thing craps immediately. Finally, I plugged in a 15" Dell LCD and guess what?! It's the damn monitor!! The bad part was all that time that I was trying to get into BIOS - it was going, and since I couldn't see, I was pressing all sorts of key combos to get out. That was a bad idea! I buggered up the BIOS doing that which forced the re-install. Finally got it pretty much back the way I had it, at about 4 the next afternoon. Oh what fun I've had. rolleyes.gif

Ever heard of a monitor screwing up your system? The damn thing is fine in Windows - but goes black in BIOS... damndest thing I ever saw.

But all is good now... I'm beat, but it's fixed. I've spewed enough garbage so...

Thanks for your assistance Sin0822 and PedroC1999!! thumb.gif

For anyone having a similar problem. I have the same mobo and the only way I can access the bios is through the VGA output. For some reason it won't display through hdmi.

Also, I came here wondering if anyone found a fix for the " Wonky" bios display during POST. I get the same thing on my LCD TV in 1080p. It's zoomed in and you can't see the options to enter bios and etc.
