    Exclamation ASRock Fatal1ty Z77 Professional won't boot unless it's using iGP

    Hi guys,

    I've been a long time ASUS guy who's switched to ASRock on my first Ivy Bridge CPU (3770K) with the Fatal1ty Z77 Professional. I have a PowerColor 6970 2GB card that works fine, however with my new build I can't seem to get the motherboard to display any output on the two DVI ports on the card. I can only boot with the HDMI port on the motherboard.

    As I've only used AMD CPUs before this (First Intel in a decade!) I'm wondering whether I'm meant to use only the onboard iGPU with these new motherboards - I use two screens as a CAD guy, or is it a setting in the BIOS i need to tweak?

    Configuration:

    - ASRock Fatal1ty Z77 Professional
    - Intel i7 3770K
    - Corsair VengeanceŽ — 4GB Dual Channel DDR3 Memory Kit (CMZ4GX3M2A2000C10)
    - PowerColor 6970 2Gb PCIe
    - Corsair HX650 PSU

    Verified that the RAM is OK (memtest a day), GPU is fine also, works on an older ASUS board (non-intel), not the PSU either.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Ashlea

    Look in your bios there should be a place to set the board to use the pcie slot as the main graphics.

    Thanks for the reply. It was already set to PCIe. Is this common with all Sandy/Ivy Bridge processors or just this board?

    If its just one GFX, is it meant to be put into a certain slot? I put it at the top most PCIe 16x slot.

    I am having the exact same issue...

    Well.. The system boots; but just will not show via display on 3rd party card... if you change back to built in card, system shows video.

    My MB is Z77 Fatil1ty Professional; CPU is Ivy Bridge Intel I7-3700K; 16 Gb RipJaw RAM, Video Display, HIS ATI Radeon 7950.

    System will NOT display ANY video whatsoever from HIS card, only Intel HD 4000 Graphics Adapter is detected, as it is defaulted on MB. I have moved video card to two other PCI-E x16 Slots and the same results. No detection of card what so ever.

    I have d/l latest drivers from ATI.. Bottomline is the video card is not detected. I contacted HIS support and their reply was "ensure PCI-E power cables are properly installed".. Come on guys.. Give me a break..

    The only display available to me is via the HDMI port on Intel HD 4000, which is built in.

    I paid top dollar for this video card and am extremely disappointed it is not even detected. I have checked the BIOS, its set to PCI-E for display. I have tried all three settings, PCI-E, PCI and onboard. Nothing changes. Any guidance is greatly appreciated.. I really need an answer to this issue.....

    Currently Video is plugged into PCI-E2 (16x, PCI-E 3.0). Im almost positive there is nothing wrong with the video card; however I can't be 100% positive because I don't have another system to test; but it was factory sealed and unopened upon purchase.

    HELP!

    --MB Fata1ity Professional Z77 (Bios 1.00)
    --Memory: RipJaw Performance (2x8Gig= 16 Gb)
    --CPU: Intel i7-3770K
    --Display: HIS ATI Radeon 7950, 3Gig RAM
    --HD: 2 WD Scorpion 1 TB Each
    --PS: Ultra PS-750

    Disable Virtu, man.
    Depending on the Virtu setting you're running, the ports on the card will be disabled.

    I believe it's Virtu green you need to disable, though I could be wrong.
    Disable MVP too if you don't want to use it, it is pretty cool though.

    Hope this helps.

    Good News! Problem resolved!

    The problem exists because of invalid BIOS settings. To fix issue; you MUST d/l BIOS version BETA 1.08. It is available via this link: ftp://174.142.97.10/bios/1155/Fatal1...(L1.08)ROM.zip This is a direct link to ASROCK Beta Zone for Z77 Professional L1.08.

    Once installed; on first boot the issue was gone; as a matter a fact I thought the BIOS update had fried my board because I had NO video what so ever... I got kinda nervous.. Then I realized I had my HDMI plugged into the Onboard Graphics Adapter; I quickly moved the cable and Poof... I had video emitting from the HIS Radeon 7950 card...

    I then reinstalled the ATI Catalyst drivers (most current from website) and all is good.

    This issue is now solved in my case.

    Exactly my situation. I spent hours on this. I had it all packed up ready to return in fact. I thought, let me give it one more try and Bingo!
