Opti 7010 Dual-Display-Port POST message: looking to suppress informational message that requires F1 to continue

All,

New OPti-7010 with intel HD graphics connected to (2) Dell U23" displays via DP.  VGA port not used.  During POST a message is displayed stating:

Only one display is supported during POST:  DP port has higher priority than VGA port.  Press F1 to continue, F2 for setup, etc.

This is an informational message ONLY and it prevents the system from booting to OS (Win7 x64).  I cannot find any BIOS setting to allow me to suppress these types of messages, nor can I disable the on-board VGA port, nor find a way into an "advanced" BIOS area. 

Anyone know a key combo for advanced BIOS settings? Or how to by-pass this message and continue normal boot?

Thanks,

Chip

Hello,

I have the same poblem with the same PC. I use 3 displays, 2 Dell U23" via DP and 1 via VGA. I only can boot in Safe-modus after the message.

Can anyone help us?

Thanks,

 

Bart

We're seeing the exact same problem.  Our Dells shipped with A01 BIOS.  We've tried A04 but that has not resolved the issue.

I'll clarify a little bit...  We ARE able to get into Windows just fine after we press F1 to continue (we're not restricted to Safe Mode), but this is an inconvenience to our users - especially if they're working from home and need to reboot their office computers.  We did not have this problem with the 790 - it seems new to the 7010.

Before the Optiplex 7010, we had the Optiplex 980 and 990.

This models had no displayport information messages.

I had contact with the Dell ProSupport and they didn't know how to turn off the message.

I cannot tell the users to press press F1, every time they start up!

Hopefully Dell will respond fast!

I'm having the same issue with OptiPlex 9010.  This is an absurd problem that still exists in the A04 BIOS.  I cannot fathom why I would even want that information, let alone the fact that it prevents the system from booting the OS.

I just encountered this same problem with an Optiplex 9010 and two DisplayPort screens (one native and one with a DP to DVI adapter.)  I've contacted ProSupport but if they can't help I might have to see if our salesperson can offer us an exchange with another model.

ProSupport told me that they are aware of the issue and that a BIOS fix was being worked on.

I'm having the same issue with five 7010s connected to two U24" with DP cables (per each computer). I too tried A04 but the same issue occurs. I hope ProSupport was right and we'll get a fix soon!

ProSupport got back to me and said a fix should be out in 2-3 weeks.  Fingers crossed!
