I just bought a ASUS M4A78T-E AM3 AMD 790GX HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard from newegg http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131366
and got it all hooked up.
i'm using my TV as a monitor with a VGA, the mobo has dual outputs VGA and DVI
the os (Win7) installs just fine, i can see the bios post just fine but when i actually get into the OS (well i don't really it's the first boot part of the os to do the configs) i can't see anything. I'm wondering if it has something to do with the dual outputs, cause i think vista trys to use the best display it can get. also i can boot into safe mode and see it but 7 won't let me do the configuration in safemode
i'm just trying to figure out if it's the way i'm connecting it or maybe some setting that may be hiding in the bios. of if it's a bad mobo and i should send it back.
thanks for your help
