    Motherboard Boots with Blank screen until Windows, then OK

    pbnem


      Built, setup, installed Win 7 and Apps, all running fine.

       

      Installed Desktop Control Center(DCC) and all hung. Power down, power up and no Intel startup, screen blank, goes to post code at "00", nothing until Windows welcome screen. Windows and Apps run fine. If from power on I do an F2 when post code at "E7", it gets to "E9" - Setup, but blank screen the whole time. Do an F10, Y & Enter and it goes to post code at "00", nothing until Windows welcome screen.

       

      Read DCC readme to find BIOS should be 5924 or newer. Did a MotherBoard ID Tool to find BIOS at 3206. Updated to 3822, 3878 and 5924 through Windows Express BIOS update. Still blank screen on startup.

       

      DP55KG board seems to be OK, but there must be a setting in BIOS or other that is causing:

      1. The Intel screen w/F2 option missing.

      2. The BIOS setup screens are missing.

       

      What can I do to recover them?

       

      Should I use the Recovery BIOS Update or the Integrator Toolbox BIOS Files?  Is there another way to get missing #1 & #2.

       

      Your help would be appreciated.
