    Have you verified that your monitor is plugged into the PCIe card in the back of your machine? It's possible that the BIOS is switching it back to auto if any display is plugged into the on-board port.

    Hm..I believe the motherboard is setting the PCIE device as the auto option, so by choosing "auto" the motherboard knows to choose PCIE. If your display is being run from the graphics card and to the monitor and you are getting output, then the motherboard has set the PCIE device as the primary display device. Changing to PCIE specifically should not have an effect.

    What is the issue you are trying to resolve by changing this setting? Or is it just a sort of pet peeve to have it specified?

    Many things I try to do in my ROG Maximus motherboard UEFI settings just stay set to auto, because the motherboard is pretty smart.

    Does the pc boot ok & stay on the monitor in question ?

    Is the Bios up to date, if not update the bios ?

    The latest Bios is:


    This should be displayed in Bios
