    Try looking in Bios for startup screen or logos

    here are the usual keys for entering Bios to press on startup.

    • {Delete} (modern Award and AMI BIOSes)
    • {F2} (modern Phoenix BIOSes)
    • {Ctrl}+{Alt}+{Esc}
    • {Ctrl}+{Esc}
    • {Alt}+{Esc}
    • {Ctrl}+{Alt}+{S}
    • {F1}

    Be careful what you change tho......

    You start tapping one of these keys on PC startup before windows starts to get into Bios.......it is hard to explain what you are looking for as all bios are different but the splash screen would be a start.

    If you are not comfortable then I would leave it for now as setting the wrong thing could make the PC not bootup.

    Yes...but you do not delete them just Disable it....you will not beable to use the mouse only keyboard in Bios and i beleive on that model it is tapping F2 key on startup.

    If you find what your looking for then you will have to Save and Exit.

    It is the BIOS of the new video card displaying and there is nothing you can do about it. Why would you reinstall Windows to fix this....there is nothing to fix.

    before I was using my machine for many years.. eveytime I format and install new windows running as usual, just after installed new VGA started to see these bothering data which I dont really need to see eveytime .. something i consider it as stupid idea to bother ppl by seeing these details with every start up,
    thanks to Megabite.. and I will find out how to hid up this stupid screen show,

    YOU CANNOT HIDE THE INFO!! The screens that are diplaying are part of the video card BIOS. Don't you see the correlation here that it started after installing a new video card?

    Yes, but why should bother evey time? why need to see these series and programming parts and all details about it? before when I bought the PC new and was runing it for almost 3 yrs never saw it before,
    it will cause any trouble to disable it from the BIOS? i meant this displaying message with the startup?
