Onboard graphics overrides PCIE in BIOS

Hi,

This problem occurred with my previous card and now I've installed a new GTX690 it's happening again. The PC boots up fine, except there was no picture. I thought I may have a faulty DVI cable but after many resets I finally got in to the BIOS. It turns out the graphics configuration was set to 'Auto', instead of PCIE, which I changed. However, after re-starting it reverted to Auto. I've managed to change it back to PCIE but why would it re-set itself in the BIOS? I'm afraid of turning the PC off, in case it does it again.

I have a recent BIOS but not the most recent. I don't think the update specifically does anything about this problem anyway.

Thanks.

Well it wouldn't hurt to do the bios update and try. Sometimes they don't list minor fixes and sometimes its a result of other things conflicting in the bios that might be fixed which may in turn fix your problem. I'd do the update then try again just to be sure.

I updated the BIOS but that hasn't solved it. I still have to reset the PC multiple times on start-up to get a picture. I'll be reinstalling Windows this weekend. I don't expect that will have any direct effect, but who knows?

Later...the Windows re-install didn't have any effect, so no surprise there. Just in case anyone can help, my System Agent Configuration BIOS settings are:

Initiate graphic adapter = PCIe
iGPU memory = 64M
Render standby = Enabled
iGPU multi-monitor = Disabled

Is anything wrong there? Surely as long as I have the graphics set to PCIe it should stay that way but it's still re-setting itself to Auto.
