BIOS Video Restore

How do you re-enable the video output on a GMS system…when you’ve accidentally told the system to turn off the video?! As you can imagine, it is quite difficult to use a mouse to follow video screen prompts when there’s no operational screen. This happens more frequently than you’d think: an accidental BIOS setting by the customer shuts off the video, leaving the operator literally unable to see the screen…in order to re-enable the screen.
Fear not: there is a way to get into the BIOS to re-enable video to the monitor, even when the video is set to “off” in  BIOS.


GMS Product Offering

  • Mission Computing

    Mission Computing

    Our Mission Computing Systems are targeted for applications where traditional VPX/VME/cPCI ATR packaging (card cage, power supply, fan trays, etc.) can not be considered due to size, weight, cost or other limiting factors. They also pack the highest performance with the lowest power consumption in the smallest package possible, making them a responsible choice for space constrained applications. All of our systems use only embedded devices to provide long life cycles, and to withstand harsh environmental conditions for MIL/Aero applications - meeting MIL-STD-810G, MIL-STD-1275D, MIL-STD-901D, MIL-STD-461E, DO-160D and IP67, to name a few.
