    Removed Graphics Card and Now No BIOS Startup Screen


    I needed to remove my NVIDIA GTX-960 graphics card and so I plugged my monitor into the motherboard's onboard Intel DVI port. The computer boots in Windows but I no longer have the Gigabyte Bios screen at startup. I suspect there is a Bios setting but as I can't get into the Bios I can't make any changes


    Any suggestions as to what to do?


    Thx

    Depends if the motherboard and BIOS supports using the integrated CPU graphics. Most likely will have to put the 960 back in, boot to BIOS and see what kind of settings are available.

    EDIT: According to specs it has on-board graphics: GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1150 - GA-Z97X-SLI (rev. 1.0)

    Addictive Gamer, - Rig boots into Windows just fine, just no Bios screen

    Popeye - Yup, I think that sound right. I did that and in the Bios there is a setting for "initial display" (or something like that). I suppose I should set it to the motherboard's Intel display. I just hope I don't do something very wrong and have no way back.

    Why not set it to Auto, then it will use an add-in card if present or the onboard if not.

    I will look again but I did not see an Auto setting. However upon physically removing the graphics card the Bios startup did show on the display connected to the motherboard's Intel graphics chip.
