So I’ve recently built my new gaming PC and made a video on it on which I said, “there was some issue with the video output when using Display Port” and that issue was actually not being able to access the BIOS when using Display Port and it did work perfectly with HDMI. What happened was that every time I turned on my PC, all I saw was the Windows Lockscreen and everything after that, with no BIOS and no Windows loading part.
And just to let you know I’ve finally found a fix to this after searching about this issue on several Reddit Posts, Facebook Groups, etc.
And if you’d like to know my PC Specs, go to priyamraj.com/gear but for instance, I’m using a GTX 1050 2 GB DDR5 with MSI’s Mortar B550 Motherboard at the moment. I tried changing the slot to the other PCI-E Slot, Changed BIOS Settings, Updated BIOS, Updated to the latest Nvidia Drivers, Changed my Monitor’s DP Version to 1.2 but none of that fixed it.
What fixed it for me was installing this simple Firmware Update by Nvidia.
Now this confirms that the issue was in the GPU’s Software. So if you’re facing the same issue, do this and your problem should be fixed.
This is exactly like updating your Motherboard’s BIOS, meaning that make sure there is no power loss while the process or your GPU might get damaged, permanently. Also, while doing this your display might get constant signal cutoffs, black screens but don’t let that panic you, it’s just going to make things better.
And finally, just restart your system and it should now fix everything. It did for me.
