Problem with ASUS V9570 NVidia 5700 card and ASUS A7N8X-E Deluxe Motherboard

    I have a ASUS A7N8X-E Deluxe Motherboard and am using it with a ASUS
    V9570 NVidia 5700 card. The odd problem is I get no picture in DOS.
    It works fine in Windows but if I have to boot from floppy such as for
    a BIOS update or during bootup before it goes into Windows the screen
    is blank. As well, I had to do a recent reinstall of Windows and of
    cousre it wouldn't display any of the actual screens from the CD-ROM
    so I would have had to do it blindly except I put in a ATI AGP card
    and it worked fine and I swapped cards after windows was installed.
    I suspected at first it is simply one of the BIOS settings on the
    motherboard but as I Said it worked fine with another AGP card. This
    will be a rare problem since I'm always in Windows but I could still
    run into problems again sometime in the future. As well, being they
    are both ASUS I would think this type of problem wouldn't be going on.
    As well, I use a Samsung 170s monitor if this helps. I thought it
    could have something to do with an energy saver mode since the monitor
    light blinks like it's in that mode. Any ideas?
