I just updated the BIOS on my Z97Pro4 to p2.50 and it appears to have been successful, however I only have images on the left and right monitors, the center Dell 300 is black (no signal). I tried uploading NVidia and a driver for the Dell with no lock.
Is there a setting in the BIOS that I messed up?

My intention is to upgrade to a faster SSD solely for fast boots and opening apps.

Since posting I updated the BIOS to v2.50 and installed Samsung's 970 M.2 SSD.

My center and left monitors are working however the right one isn't. I've tried all combinations of the DVI and VGA ports and can't get all three to work.

I'm willing to replace the two 19" Acer monitors that have DVI and VGA ports. Unfortunately the 30" Dell does not have an HDMI port.

Could I use a HDMI to USB cable? ?”plug the HDMI into the Z97 and the USB end to the Dell? If not, please recommend a new graphics card in the 200-250 price range. Again, I just want fast opening and saving, no games.

Much appreciation, Kerry
Windows 10 Pro
