Change Motherboard BIOS Video?

 Share

This is kind of a nit-picky attitude about bios display but here it is. I have two monitors a 21" cheap HP monitor and an ASUS 24". They are both connected to my 1050 TI with an MSI B350M Gaming Pro Mobo. Whenever my PC boots the BIOS displays on the HP monitor (connected via DVI), which has terrible viewing angles and is usually in Portrait Mode (Flipped). The mounts I have my monitors on don't allow easy pivot so sometimes I just tilt my head to work in the bios. I would love to be able to have it go through the ASUS (Connected via HDMI) which is in Landscape mode. Does anyone know what kind of settings need to be changed to get it switched over to the ASUS?

 

P.S. Also, how do I get my signature to show my systems specs? In case I have any future issues having this up may help.

Try going into In the Nvidia Control Panel, Set Up Multiple Displays tab, right-click the monitor that is connected via HDMI and make it the Primary display.

You can't choose the primary display when the system is booting / POSTing. The DVI port is probably the first one that gets initialized, so the BIOS comes up on that monitor.

That's what I was afraid of. Thank you for you answer though. This was very helpful and put my search to rest.
