Can't access Asus P8P67 BIOS, just black screen... - Page 4

ITS WORKING FOLKS!!!!!!!!

Turns out it was my f-ing HDTV that was making the BIOS lock up!!

So, can't access the BIOS with my HDTV, but can still launch windows fine - whenever I need to tweak something I'll just plug in my VGA. Jesus Christ, I can't believe I returned two motherboards and have been pulling my hair out for a week over something as simple as switching the display.

Thanks for all your help, especially you E-Peen.

Wow.... All this.... caused by an HDTV.

Well, now if someone is having similar problems I'll always ask if they have an HDTV wink.gif

You must be kidding! eek.gif

I've been following this thread, and I wouldn't have guessed that the display was an issue in a million years! One thing I need to know though - how are you connecting to your tv? HDMI? And what's your video card?

I'm curious, what method did you use to update the BIOS if you weren't able to access it? Does your PC automatically boot from a USB flash drive?

I'd guess he did it from windows.

Yeah, HDMI output. I've got a Radeon 6950.

I'm guessing the problem had something to do with the EFI's resolution. It's an old, old HDTV - I bought it when HD was the new big thing. I know loads of people use their HDTVs as monitors so no clue why mine was causing this problem.

Anyhow, I'm happy. I've been pulling my hair out for a week over something painfully simple.

And yes, I updated the BIOS through Asus' AI Suite in Windows.

i have this same problem with black screen and no boot(p8p67 Rev.3.0)...

after update to 1401 by EZ flash utility from bios(ended with succes) my motherboard stopped detecting Hard drives in RAID0. Copule of times i tryed to load defoults options and make RAID in bios again but always information that no drives detected. After 3-4 restarts screen was black. Only informacion was: no signal -on the monitor.

I try rest CMOS, take off battery for some time, change graphic card, unplag every usb device, using 1 ddr3 slot but nothing helped. Today i send this motherboard for warrianty.

Sorry for my english.

I registered on this forum to reply to this thread which a google search lead me to.

I was in an easier position to troubleshoot than the OP because my P8P67 Pro was completely fine with booting into the BIOS every time without fail until I upgraded two components simultaneously... I upgraded my hard drive to an SSD and my old (temp) VGA video card to a new Radeon HD5550 which I connected to my nearly brand new Pioneer VSX-32 receiver via HDMI, which is connected to my ~4 year old Sharp Aquos 37" 1080i TV.

Since only those two things change I knew it was something to do with the hard drive or video card unless something just randomly went wrong with the motherboard at the same time (doubtful). But to prevent unnecessary troubleshooting I googled my symptoms (which were identical to what the original post describes), and found this thread which thankfully saved me some time after I read the final replies.smile.gif

Thankfully my Radeon HD5550 has a VGA output on it so all I did was connect that directly to my TV since my receiver doesn't have a VGA input. For good measure I disconnected the HDMI cable from the video card just in case, even though I had already turned the receiver off.

Oddly when I turned the computer back on, I got the ASUS loader screen where it tells you to hit delete to enter the EFI setup screen. But no matter how much I hit delete or waited, it just stuck there. Restarting didn't help any. Out of impatience I just reset the BIOS via the CLRTC jumper, and after that it started working fine. I went ahead and updated to the latest non-beta BIOS (1502) and then switched back to HDMI via my receiver.

I confirmed that it will still not boot into the BIOS when connected via HDMI. But at least now I am on the latest BIOS revision (which is what I wanted to begin with during this whole ordeal) and also know what I have to do if I ever want to get back into the BIOS.

For what it's worth, my computer technically is only talking to my receiver and doesn't know or care what sort of TV I have. My video card knows that it's connected to a Pioneer Elite VSX-32 which is a very new receiver design (HDMI 1.4a). So that sort of rules out the 'very old TV' theory, I would think?

OP - did you inform Asus of what you found so they won't have other users sending in their motherboards for replacement?

It's getting late tonight but in the future I might play around with my receiver's video input settings so that instead of auto-negotiating its display resolution with the source (PC), it will request a specific input resolution.. maybe something very basic like 480i?

Bah... HDMI is really such a headache all around though. It's amazing as long as it has been around that it still causes all sorts of handshaking issues between devices and now we've got this head-scratcher.

I still haven't gotten overclocking completely sorted out either so I'm going to be using this VGA cable for a while until then.

Oh, lastly, I'm still using one of the 'defective' (not rev 3) boards. I didn't realize they had released the fixed model. I never got the followup email from Newegg.

And to think I'm doing all of this build-up after hours to build up a lab machine to simulate some virtual environments and disaster recovery scenarios for my work. I haven't even gotten to the point where I've been able to start on my lab experiments because I've been so distracted by all the other issues along the way. There sure is something to be said for just buying a Dell or whatever other proven solution you prefer. LOL

i am so glad i found this post! i also had the same problem just happen to me while building my new system (like i just put it together lastnight) and the black screen with a green cursor. have not updated bio's yet. but i do know i have the P8P67 Revolution rev 3 Mobo and my HDTV is super old school also...it only has DVI and HDMI. i can get the post screen and then the lock up in Bio's with HDMI cable but not with a VGA to DVI connector. also i am using a Sapphire VaporX 6870 graphics card.

Update: had the DVI-VGA connector in bottom port. put it in the top. worked very well...we'll test out HDMI once window's finishes installing! This post was a HUGE help!!!

I know it's a bit late but the "no hard disk detected" is because the secondary SATA controller on your board the Marvell one has nothing plugged into it.

Also I find it hard to believe your display would lock anything up. Video card I'd say it's possible but your monitors have nothing to do with the boot sequence. I'd even find it more likely that the bios didn't like you video card (drivers, etc) Now I might say it was making it appear to be an issue if your HDTV was bad and not displaying reliably. But stranger things have happened I guess. Anyways I think there are some other people who need help.

It seems to me from the above two posts that ATI strikes again with their buggy cards it's why I don't use them the one's I've used it's either bad drivers or just bad cards, and the one's that did work weren't worth it but that's not the point of this thread.

Who's still having issues?
