I have a Dell T7500 with a Quadro 4000 card.
I have just attached a new Phillips 328E1CA via display port. The new monitor only has display port and HDMI inputs. The monitor specs are here:
My OS is Ubuntu.
I do not see any of the boot/bios screens. My system has an encrypted hard drive, which requires password upon boot. I do not see that screen either. But if I type in my password and press enter, it takes me into the Ubuntu desktop and I can see things.
How can view the boot/bios screens via displayport?
Go into the BIOS and change the Video > Primary Video to either Auto or to your graphics card.
You’ll have to hook up a monitor to the integrated graphics port temporarily in order to access the BIOS.
