    Default Re: Determining BIOS version used during boot

    Well, I have now successfully copied my main BIOS to the backup and I still have the problem, with or without the KVM in the loop. So now I know that,

    1. A Gigabyte GTX 670 stock GPU works with my motherboard model (although I don't know what resolution monitor they used).
    2. The problem is related to the native resolution of the monitor as it worked when my monitor got forced by the KVM into a 1200x1024 resolution but gets the problem when it works at its native resolution (1980x1200)
    3. Another card works fine with my monitor running at its native resolution.
    4. Having both BIOS's at the same revision level makes no difference (as I expected).

    The conclusion is that the Gigabyte over-clocked version of the GTX 670 has some compatibility problem with my motherboard that Gigabyte technical support won't seem to address other than me sending back both the motherboard and the card. I have one last thing to try and that is clear CMOS once again just in case the BIOS copy has changed things.
