Hey everyone,

Searched around and didn't see this posted, have looked all over the net and even called Asus support, haven't been able to get resolved and really don't want to wait on their call back.

I just finished putting together my desktop using the P8P67 PRO. I'm running it with the i2600k, the video card is an XFX 6870 and it's outputting through HDMI to a 52" TV.

Basically the problem is, and it's a bit hard to describe, when I boot into the EFI Bios Utility I can only see the top left corner of the display. It seems to be a resolution issue. I looked in the book at what the utility screen is supposed to look like, and if you could imagine the thing being cut into four almost equal squares, I'd be able to see the top left one. That's about the best I can explain it. It's zoomed in on that "square" and I have no access to any of the other options. I was able to boot to DVD and load Windows 7 on the comp just fine, everything looks fine once I'm booted into Windows. I ran the driver install disc the mobo came with and that went great. But I can't use the BIOS utility because I can only see that quadrant. It's baffling. The guy at Asus sounded shocked, said he'd never heard of it before, and gave me a reference number saying I'll get a call in the next few days and if not to call in.

Any ideas?

Thanks everyone.

Hi! I have the same problem with my EFI Bios on similar motherboard.
Did you get it to work again by updating the EFI or did you solve the problem another way?
Thanks in advance!

sounds like the bios screen resolution is not outputting correctly to the TV.

What happens when you switch between "Advance" and "Easy" mode for the bios...?

I don't know about you Mike but my screen wont display more than like 20 % of the EFI Bios screen (top left corner for me aswell) , making it impossible to see where I would change from Easy to Advanced mode.
I can only see something which seems to be energy/performance profiles.
