The latest BIOS update has brought nothing but problems my way.
My earlier post Fail to boot (short-short-short-long beep code) after M92p BIOS Update explains my initial problems.
An on-site technician solved that today, by replacing my motherboard.
However, the new BIOS (released 24th January 2013) obviously has some problems with my Asus GeForce GT640 PCI-e video card.
The card itself isn't broken, and works just fine as long as I attach a monitor with a VGA-cable. However, if I try to attach it with a DVI cable the screen will "flash" every two to ten seconds or so. It stays dark for a few seconds, then comes back on. If I connect two monitors, both with DVI, I will get "Out of range" every now and then on at least one of the monitors.
Right now I've connected two monitors; one with VGA and one with DVI.
The one connected with a VGA cable works just fine, but the DVI monitors keeps up the whole "flashing" thing. It's obviously quite useless with a secondary monitor that keeps flashing every 2-10 seconds.
So far I've tried the following;
Any ideas? I'm stuck.
Tried the 313.96 BETA drivers from NVIDIA. No luck.
It seems however that it's not a driver issue, since the flashing when connected to DVI will appear long before the operating system is loaded. I even have these problems while in the BIOS.
