    Installed PNY M4000 but Bios will not post


    I changed my graphics card from a Geforce GTX 670 to a NVIDIA Quadro M4000. Since doing so, I cannot get to the bios. I have used the F2 key with no response, the F7 with no response and the F10 key with no response. I have also used the Escape key with no response. I am using Windows 10 64bit, with the latest update.

    I am wondering if the problem is with the monitor, which works great the old card. The output on the PNY is dp 1.2. The monitor is HDMI. I used a dp to hdmi cable. I turn on the system. Would the problem be corrected if I used a monitor that had a dp 1.2 connector to match that of the graphics card? The screen is black for about 20 seconds and Windows 10 loads. I reinstalled the GTX and there was no problem getting to the bios. While in the bios, I made sure the appropriate things that should be off were off.

    I have never used a DP to HDMI adapter. Your post reads like there is some sort of handshaking issue, so the graphics card isn't properly detecting the monitor.

    I believe that there are two types of adapter: passive and active. The passive one may require a different type of DP output than what the M4000 has.

    If yours is passive, perhaps an active one would help. Here's an nVidia certified one: DisplayPort 1.2 to HDMI 2.0 Active Adapter | Accell | Accell ($30 at Amazon.)

    I wish that I could promise that it'd help.
