I have a had a custom built PC for about 6 months. I'm using an old Dell monitor which can support 1280x1024 but I prefer to keep the resolution at 1024x768 as its easier for me to read.

My problem is my motherboard has Asus's UEFI bios. When entering the bios I can only see the top left corner of the page and that fills the entire screen and everything is HUGE! it looks a little pixelated but not very much. here is a screen shot below. My Question is if there is a fix to this or if anyone else is experiencing this?

Really the only solution I have found is if you are using DVI try VGA and vice versa. – CC Inc Mar 14 '13 at 19:39
i am using a VGA but HDMI works fine on my TV. – Moussa Harajli Mar 14 '13 at 19:43
Does your monitor support any other cables? If so, I advise you to try those. – CC Inc Mar 14 '13 at 19:44
it only supports VGA and the VGA is directly connected to the inside. – Moussa Harajli Mar 14 '13 at 19:46

I've seen this problem before with a gigabyte board, except that problem was a lot worse. The thing that went wrong here is your cable connection. What ever cable your using is causing the problem. You need to switch it for a more modern one.
