BIOS update disabled the iGPU with graphics card already installed capability.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Title says most of it. Ever since I updated my BIOS (motherboard in sig) from V1.6 to V1.7 it now does not allow me to use the intergrated GPU when a video card is plugged in. I need the iGPU to run my third monitor and am not going to install another space-wasting video card just to give me a third monitor. So in basic does anyone know how to get around this? Or is it safe to downgrade the BIOS?

Yes it is safe to go back to a previous version of the BIOS. The only reason you should ever update the BIOS is if you need to for functionality, or if the previous version is flawed or bugged.

You could go into the BIOS and check the options for PCIE/IGP to see if it is not correct for your particular configuration.

I have tried changing the settings, it will still let me change the preferred adapter (PCI - PCI-E - Integrated) and I can select integrated but under that the option to Enable/Disable the iGPU only has the option Disabled. I really don't understand why they would not only remove a feature from the motherboard but also not post it in the change log of the BIOS update. But thanks for the quick info. +rep

Hmm...yeah that doesnt make sense of why they would eliminate a feature from a previous BIOS unless it was flawed maybe, I dont know. Though if it worked before then go with what you know and revert to the previous version and all should be good.
