    Windows 8.1


    When I boot up the monitor does not recieve an input signal until Windows starts, unfortunately.
    Otherwise I'd be able to access recovery/BIOS. For MSI motherboards, I believe the access key is delete?
    It doesn't even work.

    I don't know any more, that's why I hate those ready made machines, always have to be "special". Maybe BIOS reset is in order.

    A custom built PC is much easier to use, because you know it entirely. I know how you feel about factory built PCs. ;/
    However, the biggest problem I have is that the monitor does not have a signal during boot sequence. If I could get that out
    of the way, I could restore back to a certain date, like 2 days ago or something and then figure it out from there.

    Don't know how could that be unless it has UEFI bios with fast or ultra fast boot set. Look at the manual, must be some key or combination that lets you boot into legacy BIOS. Otherwise all that's left is to hard reset BIOS and start from the beginning. Must have a display to work by.

    Welp, solved my monitor problem. Going off of VGA instead of DVI
    Now onto the driver problem. Got it to boot into startup repair, or what I believe is startup repair

    Also restoring to a backup, just didn't know how to get into the startup repair. I think I did it.

    And now I just got an error (0x800703f1). Nice. .-.

    Why don't you just download and install drivers ?
