My problem is that i can start my computer up and even use it(i get into windows) but i get no manufacturer logo and cant access my bios basically my monitor is black until the Welcome Windows message pops up.

 

To connect my computer to my Monitor im using a Adapter Displayport VGA Female because my Monitor has only a VGA port and my Graphics Card a DVI - D and HDMI ports.

 

Thank you in advance! :)

AMD FX™-8150 Eight-Core Processor
 
Video Card

Welcome to Bleeping Computer.

 

Is there a make or model of the machine or is this built?  If built, what is the manufacturer of the system board?

 

You can try holding down F2, F10, or DEL when you boot.

Hey Kilroy, what do you mean with is it built?(Sorry for my english :) ) If you mean if its a custom built computer then yes im still using the same Cpu, Cpu cooler, Ram and Harddrive from my old Machine.

 

Now the key i have to hold to get into the bios is F11 but when i do that my screen just stays black like it entered the bios but i get no signal/picture on my Screen.

 

My mainboard is the MSI 970A-G43 (MS-7693).

Option 2 would be to pull the CMOS battery from the system board.  That should force you to go into the BIOS.

Is it possible that my Adapter Displayport just loads its drivers with windows and not before that?

 

 

I mean that would explain why i get a black screen until windows loads itself up?

 

Does that make any sense? xD

According to your manual Del is the key to tap for accessing BIOS and F11 is your boot menu.

 

But I think it's a good possibility that the adapter is preventing you from seeing your BIOS and OEM logo. I had a laptop with a bad LCD screen attached to an external monitor. No matter what I did, I could not see the BIOS screen before booting into Windows. Do you know anyone who would let you borrow a monitor with a DVI-D port?
