I have a Quadro 4000 in my Dell T7500, connected via DisplayPort.

I don't see boot or bios screens anymore. But I see the screen fine once I have booted into Ubuntu.

When I connected a monitor via DVI, I saw boot and bios screens.

Unfortunately, my new monitor does not have a DVI input.

What could I do to remedy the situation? Would a DVI to display port adapter help?
 
Why do you wanna see the post screen anyways? To get into BIOS just press the key (del, F2,F12....) to enter your computer´s BIOS, DisplayPort should show you a screen then too

DVI to HDMI would be the cheapest thing and could work

DVI to DP would involve an active adapter which is really expensive ($40)

The Quadro 4000 doesn't display the BIOS via the display port cable. So if I ever need to change bios settings, it won't be possible using display port. It only works when I have booted into Ubuntu. I've ordered a DVI to HDMI cable from Amazon. Hopefully it will work.
