I got a Xeon W1290E CPU with a X12SCZ-TLN4F Supermicro motherboard. I have a problem with the monitor refresh rate.
The board has a built-in graphics ASPEED. The display connections on the board are VGA, DVI 2xDP. When connected to the VGA port, the refresh rate is 1hz only. No matter what monitor I use. Even though the supported refresh is higher, I can't change it. Any ideas how to fix it? I wonder if it is possible to somehow switch off the ASPEED and make the iGPU handle all the video. Some photos for reference.
BTW. I read there's a bug with windows 10 with this but it would seem this affects laptops mostly.

It's probably wired to that VGA, which could mean the iGPU isn't. Just don't use that port.

Well that is what I've figured out. It is wired but still why the hell I can't change that refresh rate? Maybe it is a feature? :laugh:

Sometimes, the chip server boards use is just barely enough to show an image. My old dual socket was the same way.

Agree with Toothless, that crappy Aspeed chip is only for basic image output.
