You may want to check the BIOS version and update incrementally as needed.
If issue persists, please provide the type of cable and display you are using.
Thanks for replying, but unfortunately I cannot get the board to boot off any kind of media, whether it be cd/dvd/usb. So I am unable to update the bios.
I need to know why the board goes through the boot process, then stops with a black screen. All I can see is 0_ in the bottom right hand corner. Does this mean the motherboard is broken?
