    This is the reply from ASRock support yesterday.
    William;
    Please check if your monnitor support 1920X1080 resolution @60Hz.
    If you have a blank screen ,probalby your monitor does not support HMDI resolution from the motherboard.

    ASRock America Support
    This is my reply.
    Yes it does support 1920X1080 resolution @60Hz.
    It worked fine with my A785GXH/128M motherboard.
    Others on various computer forums have had the same problem and were sent BIOS v1.31 from ASRock support.

    Doesn't look like support will help.
    Hoping to hear from ASRock TSD - Emily.

    Asrock has released a new version of the bios - p1.40 yesterday (10/04/2011 - 04 october 2011).The beta BIOS fixed my problem , but still i will update to this version because i just dont like the "beta" of anything :).If everything is normal after updating i'm gonna post here to let others know that the problem is gone for sure.

    Can you guys post in this thread about your results after updating? I'm just being curious if the new BIOS fixed your problems, so we can all enjoy our great motherboard :).

    Okay.I have updated to version p1.40 with Asrock Instant flash.But now there are a few new things happening to my PC.

    1.When I start my PC I can no longer see any Full Screen Logo, or anything at all , just black screen (my monitor LED goes from orange to green , so that means it's receiving signal) and shortly after that i hear 5 short beeps from the onboard speaker followed by a normal high pitched beep (the one that we hear every time we start the pc, meaning its booting properly).After that its all normal, windows loading up.
    I don't really know what's causing this.Any thoughts?

    2.When i start up the pc (without seeing anything on the monitor) i know i must press F2 to enter UEFI BIOS setup, so i do that.After the beeps i mentioned above, i enter the UEFI BIOS Setup succssesfully.Problem is, screen resolution is 640x480 , 60Hz and the whole UEFI interface is not re sized properly for that resolution.If I use the keyboard to scroll down in menus i cannot see the last menus of the screen.The only way to see the whole UEFI menus and interface is to do everything with my mouse, because if I move it to the bottom for example, the screen follows the mouse.I'm glad that's working, otherwise I've had no way to see all the buttons and menus in the setup utility.

    Except these two problems, after updating to p1.40 everything works as it should.
    Am I satisfied ? Not really... but i can live with that...until new version comes out :P

    ASRock giveth and ASRock taketh away;
    Yes I can see the BIOS screen now but now I can no longer unlock cores 2 and 3.
    Oh well, this is my media server so I don't really need a quad core anyway.

    Much faster boot times - As kalin89 said, I used to be able to see the POST screen but now I have to start tapping the Delete key (or F2) immediately or it will boot right into Windows 7.
    Also, my BIOS screens are at half size but moving the mouse up/down and right/left lets me see the rest.

    Ey Bill, have you noticed any changes to your CPU 1 Fan speed?
    Mine was always set to FULL ON and it was speeding up quite a lot (6000+RPM) when under load , and slowing down when not at load.That was before. But now even under load it's not passing 3500RPM.
    Strange because my CPU is one of the hottest ones, going above 60 degrees C if not cooled properly. (Phenom II x4 965 Black Edition)

    Mine seems to be working OK.
    I set it for Auto at 50C in the BIOS and when I check it with SIW in Windows it shows 3013-3068 at 48 and 3125 RPM at 52.
    This is while running Prime95 and it seems to be staying at 52. Note: I'm using a stock CPU cooler.
    I was afraid to run Prime for more than 10 min before flashing the new BIOS because the temps were going too high - 70C.
    I just looked again and the temps have dropped to 51 and the CPU fan is at 3013 RPM after 25 min.

    Correction.
    I stopped Prime95 and the temps dropped to 35C in a couple of minutes but the CPU 1 fan is still ranging from 3013-3125 RPMs.
    I believe that the stock fan only has 3 wires and I think that it needs 4 a wire fan for the fan controller to work.

    Scratch that.My fan is back to normal by itself.I guess it needed more time (like more than 30 minutes) of good load in order to start spinning faster.But now its working like it should.

    EDIT : from asrock FAQ UEFI Beep codes :
    Without VGA Card - 5 long beeps
    Hmm... my beeps are kind of short, but i'm pretty sure its related to this somehow.

    Try this and see if it helps:
    1.Unplug your monitor cable from the PC.
    2.Start the PC.
    wait 5-6 seconds, plug the cable in again.

    Thats what i do to solve some of my issues, hope it helps you too.
