I fixed my 1080 ti. Flashed a new bios ASUS XOC unlocked - and then flashed with the tool linked in other post. Now I don't have the issues anymore.

I have the same issue with DP and a EVGA 1080 TI - I'm using a Samsung C27hg70, 144hz 1440p. I can't try this fix atm, because my 1080 TI died recently.

What if you just hit space and entered your pin?
Yeah i think its the same thing.

ANyways I have verified that it is not a Nvidia thing with legacy systems. I plugged in my DVI monitor and it loads windows on it despite the HDMI connection being my main monitor.

Nvidia boot priority is VGA->DVI->HDMI->DP. can only be altered if system has UEFI bios apparently. I don't

But it is what it is. I do like the plx chip and pcie slot layout a lot.

If setting the windows monitor priority 1 to the displayport works it will be a fix until Windows forgets it. Which would probably be when you next clean reinstall. Easy to check, just a right click on a blank part of the desktop and a few clicks from there.
And I alway let windows set up its uefi stuff when it is installing, so Idk about that legacy gpt boot stuff.

For now What I am doing is i brought up my old Korean so now I have 3 monitors instead of 2. I will be getting a DVI to HDMI cable in the future

Btw, is it true I can't boot a GPT WIndows system in legacy bios?

My nvme pcie optane os drive also doesn't work under legacy bios. The pcie soundcard out of a mpcie/msata to pcie adapter is fine with it though.

You could set your displays to duplicate in windows display settings, try that, then change the primary (1) display. Not the best chance of working, but is free to try and has worked for me.

Maybe you are lucky and have a different hdmi input in your tv that stays real dead unless it is on and you could switch to that and turn on the hdmi after login? Or maybe you have one of those hdmi switches that you could put somewhere convenient and disconnect the signal? I'm assuming that the problem is solved if the hdmi is unplugged from the tv here.

junglechocolate And sure enough, despite not being the main display, my Korean DVI monitor was the one that loaded into Windows. Seeems everybody wants me to move on from X58
