Let me ask you if the corrupted video signal started before or after the BIOS update. I am thinking about two possible causes.
1. a corrupted BIOS installation in which case you could try the BIOS recovery process and then do a BIOS update again. Follow the steps on page 102 from the following document: https://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/motherboards/server/s2600cp/sb/g26942005_s2600cp_p4000cp_tps_rev19.pdf
2. a failed or damaged VGA port but as you say the issue will go away after a BIOS reset then I don't think this is the actual reason.
Please keep me updated.
No the video issue happened before the bios update. I tried the bios update to remedy the issue. And I don't think it could be the port as it does work fine once I reset the bios and startup. I am planning on pulling the Raid controller and put in a standard drive just to see if the boot issue still happens as the earlier crashes I was experiencing seemed related to the raid card itself crashing but since I re did the thermal paste all seems to be good with that side(fingers crossed). Thinking back, I knoow we did have 3 rather large power brown outs a day or two before all this stated to happen. I do have a APC Smart UPS powering the system so THOUGHT it would be isolated and it never did go down with the power fluctuated. I did not have the APC monitoring software running at the time.
Have you reinstalled the BIOS update? You could try to follow the BIOS recovery procedure detailed on the document previously attached?
Besides that could you please provide the board markings (serial number, PBA number)? This in case this turns out to be a hardware issue.
Well it took several tires to get t he computer to boot without video issues but finally got the recovery bios to run and i have shut down and restarted several times now and its worked each time since so fingers crossed.
Thank you Jose for your help
