(solved!) Can't enter BIOS with GPU installed

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Putting together a new computer. Without a graphics card, I can enter bios and mess with settings just fine. With a graphics card (Evga GTX 1070 SC) I can't do anything. It stays on the Gigabyte splash screen where it says "del to bios config" etc.

Without a gpu, I changed InitDisplayFirst to PEG (for pci-e graphics, right?) and saved. I turned the pc off, installed my 1070, and I get the same problem. I can't enter any options, bios setting, boot menu, q-flash (whatever that is), etc. Now I can't get video with integrated graphics.

 

If it matters, my numlock key lit up when I was using integrated graphics, and it didn't when I tried booting with the 1070.

 

Hardware: Intel i5-3470, Gigabyte GA-H77-DS3H, EVGA GTX 1070 SC ACX 3.0 

 

Edit: Motherboard update solved the problem.

simple if you want in the bios just pull the card an plug it in once the system is power on and in the bios.

Didn't know if I could do that or not

I don't think the GPU (PCI) is hot plug.....

Seemed to work 100% except no video.

Yep. What should I do about this situation? I can't get video if I don't have the card in, and I can't get video with it in. Would getting a new battery "reset" it somehow

PCIe is NOT hot pluggable, DO NOT follow that guy's instruction, he's a troll that we just banned.

 

Please ONLY insert a GPU when the PC is powered off, or else you risk damaging something.
