    I got a Gigabyte 7850 OC and it works awesome but When I start up the computer I cannot enter the BIOS...I never see an option, and when I press the key to enter it (Del) the startup process freezes and ..I'm forced to restart... when i hit the power button the screen is black and then appears the screen with windows loading... before the new video card.. the first thing on the screen when i hit the power button was the bios/mb stuff

    please help

    Mobo MSI 890GXM-G65
    (this wasnt happening with my old video card)

    i reset and updated the cmos but anything changed

    BIOS might not be displaying because of the graphics card and display combination. Is everything matched (1680x1050) up in CCC? Can you try another display?

    yes its everything matched

    i dont think the display is causing the problem.. because my old video card worked fine with this same display and the integrated graphics too

    Hi

    Boot into windows open Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Programs and Features [uninstall catalyst control center - select: express uninstall]

    Power down the PC and switch off the PSU [wait a couple of minutes] remove the Gigabyte 7850

    Attach monitor to vga or DVI out from the motherboard

    Power up the system enter bios [tap "Del" key]

    CMOS Setup
    Navigate to: Advanced Settings
    Full Screen Logo Display ~ select: [Disabled]
    Quick Booting ~ select: [Disabled]
    Primary Graphic's Adapter ~ select: [PCI-E]

    Press F10 to save
    Pres Esc to exit

    Power down the PC and switch off the PSU [wait a couple of minutes] install the Gigabyte 7850

    Attach monitor to Gigabyte 7850

    Power up the PC boot to windows and install drivers for Gigabyte 7850

    atb (all the best)

    In addition to this, it may appear in the BIOS as: PGI/PCI, which needs switching to PCI/PGI if I'm not mistaken? Not sure which boards this applies to.

    Use the onboard jumper to reset the CMOS or remove the battery for 30 seconds...this should force a reset and make the pc stop to have the date and time set...usually for MSI you will have to hit F2 before it will boot to windows

    Hi

    ok, try going back to basics

    -Test the vga card in another PC

    -Remove the CPU [check pinouts] clear cmos [while cpu is removed]; reseat the CPU and fansink; boot with minimal hardware, one stick of RAM [seated in DIMM_1], reseat VGA card [able to boot to bios?: tapping "Del" key repeatedly] use PS2 keyboard

    *If this works; add hardware back one peice at a time, check at each stage that you are able to enter bios

    Note: bios [update ONLY] once all other avenues of trouble shooting are exhausted
    -check mobo bios is up to date Note:*"download and execute the file in USB pen drive ONLY."*
