    Unable To Reach BIOS When Connected to Standalone GPU


    I built a computer about a month ago and had no issue getting to the BIOS. Although, I found that the MOBO had issues after a few weeks and decided to purchase a different one(as well as a new PSU, but that isn't important). Since the new MOBO has been put in, I have been unable to get into BIOS when my GPU is in the computer. My monitors both get no signal until login screen. I know for a fact that the computer enters BIOS still if I spam the key, as the login screen never comes and it is just constant no signal. When I take the GPU out of the computer and connect to the onboard graphics, I can get to BIOS fine and have no problems. When I was in BIOS, I tried turning off fast boot as well as making sure my main GPU is set to be run on start, but still the problem persists. I have also tried turning off the onboard, granted I'm not sure if I did it correctly.

    I have updated the BIOS and downloaded all drivers for the computer. I just want to be able to get to BIOS on the computer with my GPU plugged in.

    I have an MSI motherboard.

    Win Ver: 20H2

    MOBO: MSI MPG Z490 Gaming Carbon Wifi

    RAM: Corsair 32gb

    CPU: I7 10700

    GPU: MSI GTX 960

    Unable to detect NVIDIA GPU after latest windows 10 update

    I believe I am having the same issue. The solution that you suggested does not work as I am unable to uninstall the drivers through the Device Manager as my GPU is not being detected and is therefore not listed under Display Adapters.

    I have an Nvidia GTX 765M as well as an Intel integrated graphics card. At the moment the machine is only recognizing the inferior Intel card. I booted into the BIOS and noticed that my discrete graphics card was listed as [NOT DETECTED].

    This appears to be an issue for several other users and I am quite confident it is an error on the Microsoft side.

    GPU

    Hi Michael

    Open Device Manager (accessible by right clicking your Start Button)

    Expand the Display Adapters section

    You should see your GPU listed, along with possibly an integrated graphics option

    If that is no listed there:

    Boot into BIOS (start your system, then on the manufacturers screen, repeatedly press the appropriate key (usually F2) to enter BIOS

    Under System Information, you should find your GPU listed

    If you still cannot find the GPU listing, what is the Make and exact Model No. of your PC - that will be printed on a sticker on the bottom casing . ..
