Hi all,

I have built a new gaming PC using Windows 7 Enterprise 64bit

Intel Core i7-6700K 4.0GHz Quad-Core Processor
Be quiet. Dark Rock Pro 3 Silent CPU Cooler for Extreme Overclocking
Gigabyte GA-Z170X-Gaming 3 ATX LGA1151 Motherboard
Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3000 Memory
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB WINDFORCE 3X Video Card
Corsair 1000W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply
TP-Link TL-WDN4800 802.11a/b/g/n PCI-Express x1 Wi-Fi Adapter
NZXT Source 530 ATX Full Tower Case

and everyhing works fine except for my VGA and DVI ports. I have installed all the drivers.

Any ideas how to fix it?

Thanks

I also couldn't find anything in BIOS for that

The only thing in the bios is in the Chip-set.

Internal Graphics
Enables or disables the onboard graphics function. (Default: Enabled)

There are three options
  • Auto
  • Enabled
  • Disabled
and I have tried them all but that did not help.

I have also tried Initial Display Output where there are 4 options:
  • IGFX
  • PCIe 1 slot
  • PCIe 2 slot
  • PCIe 3 slot
when I choose any of PCIe ones the monitors conected to my graphic card work ok but not the one connected to my motherboard but when I choose IGFX option one only monitor which is working is the one conected to the motherboard.

I hope this information will be useful to help me! any ideas?

Thanks

I don't think you can use both at the same time. You can setup 3 monitors at the same time using the on board connection. You can setup three monitors using a video card with three connection. Once you put in a video card it will boot to that card by default.

In the bios it should read like this right.

IGFX
PCIe 1 slot "Default"
PCIe 2 slot
PCIe 3 slot

I have used 3 monitors with my GA-Z97X-Gaming 3 and GTX 780 before connecting 2 monitors to my graphic card and 1 to my motherboard and that worked without any problems, why this build is different?

Yes I understand what you are saying, but they change things since the older boards and video cards. I have some older boards and in the book it will tell you can do that. Today they have taken that option away sorry.
