    does nvidia control panel let you create a custom display/screen size? i can do that in ati control panel,if you can then you can create a 1920x1080 res and apply it,use overscan to get rid of any black borders

    Yes you can, but if the monitor isn't being detected properly I don't see the point on using the tool.

    Open your nVidia Control Panel, Under Display, select "Change Resolution" then in the bottom left you can click on "Customize" there you can create a custom resolution.

    but I have seen this before with bad VGA and also bad DVI cables. So I would first look at trying different cables... and I've seen them go bad for no visible reason, just one day you can't get any higher that 800x600 when the day before it was 1680x1050...

    its being detected just not listing the full resolution support,just thought it might allow full 1920x1080 if he created a custom res profile

    When I ran in to both on my bad cables, It saw the monitor as a pnp monitor but for me the highest res I could select was 800x600 (these were crappy boxed HP's) but I had tried updating drivers for both GPU and monitor, I even tried a bios update as these were integrated GPU's... these PC hadn't moved in 2 years from their location.. these were day to day terminals...

    so last thing left to try was the cables and poof, didn't even need to re-boot... I had my resolution back.

    I didn't take 5 min to rule out the DVI cable the 2nd time and sure enough I was back in business.

    I've resolved the resolution issue - it seems my KVM stores the max resolution of my monitor, so when I tried a low resolution monitor it saved its 1280x1024 max resolution. Power cycling the KVM gave me my full resolution back but then I was back to my original problem - no video signal until Windows loads the GPU driver. At least I now know that the problem is related to monitor resolution but setting resolution lower does not make any difference even with the monitor connected directly to my system.

    I've also managed eventually to copy main BIOS to backup BIOS so they are both at version FH. As expected this made no difference to the problem unless clearing CMOS might make some difference after the copy. That's my next test and then I think I've run out of ideas.

    No, I haven't but don't see that will make any difference - the problem rears its ugly head before the drivers are loaded. That is, I don't get any video signal UNTIL the drivers are loaded then I'm presented with the Windows login screen.

    But I will install them anyway for the day when I've put the boot problem to bed.

    Thanks,

    George

    you never mentionned that you were using a KVM... I would had you remove it all together to rule it out.

    The issue of not getting a video until windows loads it due to you not using the default display. What port are you using on the GPU? do you have 2 GPU's? this issue is 1 of 2 things...

    if using DVI try using the other DVI port on the graphics card, see if that works (what you may see in your resolution selection menu from windows, click the identify button... I bet you'll see "2" and not "1" meaning that you are actively using the alternative display output)....

    if that didn't do it, secondly in the bios set the default video display to PEG1 or PEG2 (whichever you have it plugged in too). I bet it's set to PCI... but you won't see the bios because the default display is not loaded... try the GPU in a different PCIe slot. I know you mentioned trying that already...

    what I would do is this;

    1) shutdown and clear the CMOS
    2) reboot in to the bios and "Load Optimized Defaults" then save and reboot again
    3) Go back in the bios, if your GPU is in the top slot select PCIe Slot 1, save and re-boot
    4) Then try the DVI port that is beside the HDMI port.. if you still don't get it then try the top DVI port...

    not seeing a display until windows is an initial display setting that is incorrect, hands down.

    Thanks Vin. First, I had already ruled out the KVM as an issue. I've been working on this problem for over 3 weeks now and I've tried everything you suggested. There is a flaw however in your set of steps to try. I can't get into BIOS as I don't get any video at that point. Also, the Init Display setting for Load Optimised Defaults is PCI and its setting is largely irrelevant if you only have one card in the system - if I understand it, all it is is a direction to the BIOS as to which slot to try first to speed boot time and avoid the BIOS doing a search of the PCI bus for a GPU. If you set it to slot 1 and have the GPU in slot 2 it will find it and use that. Since PCI is the default setting and this setting was an issue, then what happens if somebody is building a system with this mobo/GPU combination and then finds that they need to get into the BIOS to get a video signal so they can see the BIOS - a bit of a catch 22. That said, I have gone through the steps you suggested (I overcame the BIOS setting problem as I have another card I can use that has no problems as did the GTX 580 I had previously before it died on me and forced me to get a new card). Whether the GTX 670 is in slot 1 or slot2 or I use either of the DVI sockets I get no video until Windows boots and loads the NVidia driver and all done without the KVM in the picture. Incidentally, the NVidia control panel always says the display is 1 regardless of the DVI socket you use - there is only one display. Also, I only have one GPU except when I have to add a working GPU to get into BIOS. I carried out your steps with the 670 only in the system, switched it with the working GPU to make BIOS changes then switched back to just the 670 to test these changes. I'm always happy to get suggestions though and will always try whatever is suggested other than anything that may leave me with a dead motherboard. I'm beginning to think that the best solution would be to but a cheap GPU just for those times I need to get into the BIOS or Windows safe mode. Many thanks for the suggestion though. I was sure it wasn't the answer but I did exactly what you suggested to confirm my suspicion. George
