Solved 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

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.
