My monitor works fine when the computer starts, and with
windows, but if you hit Del to go into the BIOS it can't
seem to sync properly. Any way to fix this? Latest Award

This is a brand new system. I am going to try a friend's monitor to see if it will work
tonight.

While you are at it try a non AGP video card. Even the latest bios may have trouble with AGP.

Yes I think that may be it. I tried on a friend's monitor last night and it also had
trouble. I dropped his old PCI Diamond stealth in there and it worked fine. So
I will contact Supermicro to see what they know and if there is a new bios to
try.

No I put the system together myself, it's a Diamond Fire GL 1000 Pro. I also am
going to try to upgrade the bios on the card to see if that helps.

The AGP card I believe is the problem coupled with the monitor. I encountered the same on a Pentium II. I used an older monitor and it didn't work at all. But putting in an older Trident video card it worked fine. On the brand new monitor with AGP card and no problem.

This IS all brand new stuff. Motherboard, monitor, and the GL card are all released
in the last year. I need a way for this all to work together.
