    I want to set up dual monitors on my computer. I have two HDMI ports; one that is on my graphics card and one on my motherboard.

    The GPU port works just fine. The motherboard HDMI port does not. I did some research and learned that I need to enable that in BIOS. When I tried to do this, I found out that my USB keyboard does not work for BIOS. I did further research on this and found that I can change the settings on my Universal Serial Bus controllers to enable my USB keyboard by unchecking the "use automatic settings" box, but that box is completely grayed out.

    Help me out dudes. Any solution would be appreciated.

    If you can get into the Bios try using the mouse otherwise you need to get a PS/2 keyboard which should work in the Bios.

    I don't have a PS/2 port for that. And Bios only accepts keyboard inputs.

    The specs I found for the gtx1060 show at least 3 ports; display port, hdmi, and dvi. Use one of the unused ports for the second monitor.
    The reason why the setting is grayed out is that most motherboards disable onchip video when a real video card is installed.

    It may not matter now but if you have the "Motherboard: Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd., H110M-A-CF" as shown in the first post it has 2 PS/2 ports, purple for keyboard and green for mouse :-
