i updated the BIOS of my Maximus VI Hero to 0711. Now when windows 7 64bit starts i do not see the republic of gamers logo and the 4 different colors come together. The whole part with the boot screen is skipped and i see directly the screen of windows where i can put my password to enter. The problem is that i would like to go into the BIOS settings, but the part where i see the message "Press Del or F2 to enter BIOS" is not visible. When i use the software from ASUS "ASUS Boot Setting" and choose to go directly to BIOS, windows restarts, but instead that something happens, i see only black screen. When i press the power button of the monitor i get the message "No DVI Signal". If somebody can help me the solve this problem, i will be very thankful.

When you first power on, repeatedly press del or F2 to get into the bios.
I suspect that the current bios setting is set to bypass the bios message in favor of faster booting to windows.

Thank you very much for your answer. I already tried that. When i press Del or F2 during the first seconds of windows booting the result is that the black screen stays black. It is like i am into the BIOS Settings, but can not see them. So the screen stays black for a very long time. Then i turn off the computer and start it again so i can log into windows.

Perhaps the bios display default is to the integrated video adapter. Try attaching the monitor there.

Read your motherboard manual.
There should be instructions on how to clear cmos and reset the bios to default.

It is also possible that your bios update was flawed. Read on how to reset it to where you were before.

One should only update a bios when the update will fix a problem that is impacting you.
A failed bios update can brick your motherboard.

I have gtx690 that i connect via DVI-D to ASUS VG248QE. When i connect the motherboard via HDMI to the monitor and choose as video source HDMI i get the message "HDMI No signal". Also the first time after the BIOS Update as my computer restarted i was able to go to the BIOS Settings. Then i was connected via DVI-D.

I also tried to disable the "Fast Booting"-Feature, but again when i use the ASUS Software to go directly to BIOS, i get a black screen and nothing happens.

PROBLEM SOLVED! My GTX690 has 2 DVI-I and 1 DVI-D. My Monitor is connected via DVI-I. I have also connected my TV to the GTX690 via one of the two DVI-I. So when windows starts the ROG-Logo and the 4 colors of windows come together gets displayed at the TV, after that the signal is switched to the monitor and i see the Login-Screen. Now i moved the cable connected to the TV to the other DVI-I-Port and as result everything gets displayed at my monitor. Thank you all for the answers! Hopefully this solution can help other people!
