I can't connect VGA cable into the slot on mobo :confused: It goes in maybe 1mm but can't hold, doesn't go further inside :wtf: Tried to be gentle then a bit rough but still closed doors :rolleyes:

Well this prob made me buy DVI cable finally hehe, which fits in fine BUT

1. Picture is not showing up until in Windows only, can't see post screen, BIOS, Windows logo loading.. picture shows up straight in loaded Windows
2. Sometimes I have to boot computer many times before I get picture
3. Sometimes I get "System recovered from serious error" in Windows
4. SATA disk AHCI mode doesn't work if onboard graphics set as default, does this make any sense?

I still didn't install VIRTU thingy, maybe this could make a difference? will try it today when back home.

is there any people with the same mobo? or ATX size Pro3. All good with yours?

that's odd.. ahci and the video shouldn't bother each other unless there's something up with the board.

are there any bent pins on your vga cable?

No bent pins, the same cable goes fine into other monitor and adapters.

Didn't install VIRTU yet to try how it behaves then.. got stuck into gaming sry :D

but yeah, feels a bit strange this mobo. Discovered two new "features".... new topic I guess :shadedshu
