    That didn't take You long to get the parts and build it :) No CPU with the HD 520 around here, so You'll have to wait on someone to tell You which driver version is running stable. And speaking of Stable, What Win 10 Build are You running ??

    Also are You running duplicate display or extend desktop ? Plus what's the Monitors, and their display settings ?? Without a discreet card it shouldn't make a difference :confused: but You can check in BIOS to make sure the display is locked to integrated only. Opps speaking of BIOS You also need to post which version You're using too.

    Getting into BIOS

    Yeah, not that long in the forums but it's like years in saving! I asked previously because I already have the portion of the money and I needed to make a really good decision on this one. This is the problem too the BIOS.. I'm trying to figure out to get in to the BIOS, I did before but now it's not possible. The keyboard don't get powered until it's really booted or into the password area of windows so I'm not able to press any keys to get into the BIOS. I'm using a USB type keyboard right now. I'm not sure if I did set it to be like that previously when I was in BIOS.

    I tried also the reboot to BIOS in Windows but somehow I'm not seeing the one that's going to get me there. I'll try and update things soon, I still need to Google things out. :(

    Disconnect the power and remove the CMOS battery, press and hold the power button for 30 seconds then put it all back together. You should then be able to boot up and hit Delete or whatever to get into the BIOS.

    Okay, What does that do? I'm assuming that it's resetting the BIOS into defaults? right? Just want to make it clear.

    I'm leaning towards the idea that maybe its doing this "flickering" on the monitor due to the fact that I'm using only an adapter just for me to have a Dual Monitor display (I'm using at extended displays.)

    What would happen if I use my old video card? That's way way way old. Would it be using that video card for primary display? I'm thinking that it's just that for me to support dual monitor and for it to work properly and still utilizing HD 520 as primary rendering unit on the i7 processor. o_O
