[SOLVED] GT 1030

Every modern GPU has a hybrid vBIOS that allows use on either Legacy BIOS boot or UEFI boot. The problem is during the Sandy Bridge era, many OEM boards like as this Pegatron exposed various EFI features in their BIOS but were not actually fully UEFI compliant. This results in a GPU incorrectly booting up in UEFI mode and only showing a black screen. Without a BIOS update (which OEMs were very bad at supplying), the only solution for such boards was a MSI card that had a physical vBIOS switch that can force Legacy BIOS mode.

That said, on UserBenchmark there are a number of people running modern video cards on this specific board, including a GTX 1050Ti

Sorry, it is not easy to find a new bios because of the 4M bios on the motherboard
The motherboard of this brand should be OEM. I seldom see them.
If the original BIOS is used in this motherboard, the 22nm CPU will not be lit.

That would depend on how old your BIOS is. The people with your board on UserBenchmark are using the GT1030, GTX1050Ti and GTX1060 on an old BIOS dated 20101104, while someone running that board with a GTX960 is using a newer BIOS dated 20120530 so presumably anything between those would work, and probably newer works too.

See, UserBenchmark is good for something after all!
