Platform:
Windows 10 Pro
GA-X79-UD5 rev 1.0
E5-2670
40GB DDR3 Quad
512 SSD
GTX 1060
 
Scenario:
Upgraded Video Card from GTX 560 Ti to GTX 1060 Strix, machine boots but no video output or just black/blank screen. 
 
Did a bit of online research and realize that two ways of fixing this
1. Change PCI setting to Legacy in BIOS/UEFI
2. Update to latest BIOS.
 
I decided to try and update BIOS to latest BETA (13w) using @BIOS from Windows. Everything went ok, reboots fine and still does now with Windows loading no problem, BUT i can't get to BIOS/UEFI???
 
All i get is the UEFI empty blue screen, no menus/options, just blank screen...
 
So i thought maybe i can reverse back to previous BIOS from windows but program wouldn't allow this. I tried sticking BIOS file in USB but the problem is i can't get to BIOS.
 
I Have tried running backup BIOS as board has two, but still same problem.

Gday.

 

Did you read the Notes? Did you follow the procedure?   Using anything Beta is always risky.

  1. Beta BIOS
  2. Support IVB-E CPU

(Note) Please update @BIOS to ver.2.33 and be sure to reflash this BIOS through @BIOS ver2.33. 
(Note) To Support IVB-E CPU, the Intel driver must be updated in advanced. 
Especially this. (Note) 3D BIOS will be no longer support after updating this BIOS.

 

​Please let us know exactly what you did before trying other fixes.

Not heard back from you for a while!!   Have you solved your problem, or still need more help?   An update would be appreciated.
