    Stalling? Maybe.

    He has the LOGO and can enter boot menu.
    If the problem was monitor he would be stuck after flashing BIOS/clearing CMOS when BIOS is waiting for input.

    Thanks Chike, I confused his problem with another thread.

    Yep, I'll go along with stalling.

    Might possibly be..I was using a DVI cable and switched over to a HDMI... same results.. next try is a crt monitor with a VGA port.. see if that works! ;-) Oops!... I can't do it.. video card doesn't have a vga port... oh well!

    I wonder if the GEN setting of your video card or your specific video card has anything to do with the problem.
    Can you borrow an older, lower end video card to test with?

    I wished I could... however I don't have another older video card... I'll have to ask around and see if anyone has one...In the meantime.. I'm thinking of clearing the CMOS.. as a last resort!

    I believe the issue is with the bios firmware unable to communicate properly with some device. However windows is able to load the appropriate drivers after UEFI boot. It might be because of the A9 code, this is why the customer support is asking you to check the cables/monitor. From what I've read, you can trying disconnecting your sata drives and see if it will let you enter the bios. If it does, reconnect them afterwards and see if it will allow you to do so again.

    It's a bios firmware issue IMO, so approach the CMOS reset option with that in mind. It will help in case clearing the CMOS makes it a bit more tricky to enter windows too. In which case, you may think of switching to the backup bios or something similar to troubleshoot.

    Thanks for your insightful input... When I get more free time to play around with the computer Ill disconnect the hard drives and see if that does the trick...
