Hi all,
i just bought a new monitor from Dell (Dell P2418D 23.8" QHD Monitor (24", 2560 x 1440 Pixels) and connected it to my graphic card Palit GeForce GTX 750 KalmX - passiv - 2GB.
I setted the resolution in Windows to 2560 x 1440 Pixels and it is working perfect. The only problem is, that the boot screen is not displayed anymore.
Before i runned a DELL P2217H (22", 1920 x 1080 Pixels) and the Boot screen showed up.

Is there any setting within the ASUS Z170-A Bios that i may change for displaying the Boot screen again? Any other idea how i could solve this issue?

Thanks for your feedback!

Are you running the latest system BIOS? Is Fast Boot enabled or disabled?

Hi,
no i run a old BIOS and yes fast boot is enabled BUT
i have pluged in the monitor on my first DVI-D port (white DVI)on my
Palit GeForce GTX 750 KalmX - passiv - 2GB
https://www.guru3d.com/articles-page...-review,2.html
and boot sequence is no visible.
If i use the black DVI port i can not see the boot sequence.

What is the difference of this two ports?
I have checked the resolution and i am running on 2560x1440/60Hz

Any clarifiction on this would be great

Thanks

Have you checked the User Manual?

Based on the images on the manufacturer's website (::Palit Products - GeForceŽ GTX 750 Ti KalmX (2048MB GDDR5) :: ), they are labeled "DVI-I" & "DVD-D".

Single link: 1920 × 1200 (WUXGA) @ 60 Hz
Dual link: 2560 × 1600 (WQXGA) @ 60 Hz

Also, resolution doesn't matter during boot as the BIOS typically uses a lower resolution that isn't adjustable. So I don't know how you know that you are using "2560x1440" as you don't get to select or configure a resolution until you are in Windows.

Hi Jim,
on my graphic Card there is no Information on the type of ports. The Only thing i see,
is that i have a white socket with 4 additional Pins to the black socket.
According to https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface
the white socket must be DVI-I (Dual Link) and the black socket must be
DVI-D (Dual Link).
If i plug in the monitor in the White socket i will get the fast boot bios Information
but if i plug the monitor into the black socket i will get no Screen up to Windows is booted. There is only a message from Dell displayd up to Windows fully has booted, that i have to set the resolution to 2560x1440/60Hz.

I checked the resolution in Windows and this is 2560x1440/60Hz.
The Manual for the graphic Card is very poor and no Infos on the ports.

There is also no clear info on Palit EU page:
::Palit Products - GeForceŽ GTX 750 Ti KalmX (2048MB GDDR5) ::

Obviously there is a difference for the white and the black socket, but which and and how they influence the monitor i dont know. I just have different boot behaviors as described above.

Any help to cleard this would be great. Thanks

Christian

Bios is analog output only since there are no drivers in the bios it's normal for only 1 port to have analog output.

ok, now it is clear for me:
-BIOS display works only analog, therefore i will get only BIOS boot messages
on my white socket DVI-I with analog pins

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface

So the question is how do people handel this when they only have digital signals
to the monitor? Are they anyhow able to see BIOS messages or enter the BIOS?

Thanks for your answers?

That's why a lot of the new bios have a windows interface, with a uefi bios and a integrated video on the cpu most newer boards will display a digital signal on HDMI or DVI depending on how the motherboard is designed.
