dp and hdmi dont work

plug the one display port monitor in that you want. then restart the machine so it will detect the monitor while windows is loading.

you'll also know if the ports and cards and monitor are working if the post screen is shown before windows loads.

plug the one display port monitor in that you want. then restart the machine so it will detect the monitor while windows is loading.

you'll also know if the ports and cards and monitor are working if the post screen is shown before windows loads.
