|"Does it when I was actually in the bios checking things out"|
I think that just about says all. BIOS is in action well before Windows starts (whether in Safe Mode or normally). It just about has to be hardware and the graphics card or module is near certain. Is it built in onboard graphics or an addon card? If it is onboard you could add a card and plug the monitor into that.
Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
