Windows 7: New Flat Panel LED will not let me see BIOS Splash Screen!

New Flat Panel LED will not let me see BIOS Splash Screen!

Hi! Purchased a ViewSonic VX2753 27" LED flat panel and connected thru HDMI to desktop. I want to access the BIOS menu and for some reason, the monitor displays "No Signal" until the Windows 7 logon screen. So I cannot see the BIOS startup to enter the BIOS menu.

System Config: Win 7 Ultimate (64), AMD Phenom 9650, ATI Radeon HD 4600 Series Graphics Card & Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-US2H motherboard.

Hello , and welcome aboard

I am not very sure, but it might be that as in the BIOS it is only the basic graphics works, so the connection from the GPU to the monitor is inactive.

If, for the time being you connect the cable to the motherboard's slot , most probably the bios menu will be shown .

Thanks! And also thanks for the quick reply. I did think of this workaround, so I tried the following:

1. Booted with the HDMI cable in the on-board graphics slot - no dice - still get a "no signal" display on the display
2. Booted with a regular VGA cable in the graphics card VGA slot - no BIOS splash screen, "no signal" on panel, then straight to Windows logon screen
3. Booted VGA cable in on-board graphics slot - again "no signal" all the way.

Looks like the only option I have left is to physically remove the graphics card and then try and boot and see. Which is a massive pain
