I've recently Installed a Sabertooth Z77 and have come across a problem. Since Installation the bios screen (except for the clock portion) Is all covered In black. Mousing over the darkened areas reveals what should be displayed, but leaves It Inaccessible. Removing the card restores It to It's Intended state. My drivers should all be up to date, as far as I'm concerned anyway... I'm curious as to what could cause this, any Input would be much appreciated. My system Is as follows.

Graphics AMD Radeon HD 6790.
CPU Intel Core i5 2500
Motherboard Sabertooth Z77 (LGA 1155)

I should also note that everything works fine otherwise.

My bios Is updated to 1708 which Is the current release. I also tried the previous two revisions of 1616 and 1504 to no avail.

It might be a resolution issue. What monitor are you using?

That was It. I have been running my video through my T.V. recently. I still can't help but wonder why the bios works fine without the video card on the T.V. though. Oh well, thank you much.
