Hi all I have an ASUS GeForce® GTX 650 Ti Boost and currently have a HL229 monitor plugged into the DVI-D and a HSG1076 TV plugged into the HDMI, I use the HL229 as my computer monitor and watch catch up TV and movies through the computer on my TV, but when I start up my computer it treats the HDMI TV as the main monitor showing the start up screen there and the computer bios if I enter it and then once it enters windows it turnes the TV signal back off and my monitor screen on, clearly this is not how it should be, everything should show on my monitor and my TV should only be used when I extend the display within Windows 7, any idea how to fix this?

Check display settings, and designate the monitor to be the primary.

unfortunately there is nothing you can do, the hdmi port for weird reasons on most nvidia cards seems to take priority over dvi ports as the primary output during post.

if you are only using the tv for watching movies and stuff you could use integrated graphics on your motherboard if it has them with the tv.

That is a shame, they should include a jumper or switch on the card to set primary output, I guess I'll just have to leave the TV unplugged and plug it in when I want to use it or live with it :/

look in the manual and see which port is port 1 on the video card - guranteed the HDMI is port 1 - that is the port POST displays on

I don't have the manual, but it sounds like you're right
