I have a strange issue with my new system. I used the same GPU in my other computer, an ASUS RTX 2080Ti Turbo. It is connected to monitors, two with HDMI and one with DP. Its a ASUS ROG STRIX X570-F GAMING motherboard. The CPU is the 3700X.
I moved the disk from my old system to the new system and just updated the drivers and such. But seems like if it did not have any OS the screen would just never turn on. The disk has Ubuntu installed and with Windows 10 as the default boot. If i try to press DEL or the arrow keys during boot it will just never use any of the displays.
I think updating the bios could be a good idea... but not sure how I would do that without access to the bios. Well, without being able to see the bios. I cannot seem to find any examples of others having this problem. Its usually that they can see the bios but not get into Windows or that the screen wont turn on at all.
I have not tried doing a CMOS reset, I guess that might help. Anyone has any suggestions? I have been thinking about trying to run some DOS games on it, see if its a problem to go to those resolutions overall. But DOSBox f.ex. often use windowed fullscreen I think so its not actually making the monitor display 320x240 or something like that. But I should be able to find something that would force it to use some low resolution.
Solved: I finally got this working. I contacted ASUS support, but that was no help. They suggested I tried to reset CMOS and told me there was no software to check my current bios version to see if I had succeeded at updating my bios.
I googled some more and found that there should be an EZUpdate utility since my motherboard has some Asus EZ features. Its part of ASUS AI suite III but for some reason this software does not show up as software for my motherboard, so I had to select the ROG MAXIMUS XI GENE motherboard on the ASUS Support site and here I could download that software.
Which is fully working. Shows me my bios version was 0807 and I then used it to update my bios and now I can see my bios boot, Ubuntu boot screen and everything :)
