Solved BIOS Not shown with new GPU

Specs: Windows 10, Intel Core i5-4440, 8GB DDR3
Hey everyone,
I've recently gotten a new GPU, an NVidia GTX 750 Ti from MSI. Everything is working just fine in windows, I have no problem at all, however it seems like during boot, the PC splash screen doesn't appear as it used to do without a GPU before (which means, it doesn't detect my GPU while booting?). That also means that sometimes, if my PC isn't turned off properly (electricity cuts) it just gets stuck on an empty screen, while in fact it is just on the screen asking for what to do.

Here are my specs:
Dell Inspiron i3847-5846BK Desktop

Hope you can help me as I am also trying to dual boot Linux.. I can't do that until I've found a way to access my BIOS or Boot menu.

Not sure but I suspect your on-board GPU is selected during boot. If you move the monitor connector to the on-board GPU, anything displayed during boot?

Nothing at all. It does show when the GPU isnt connected though.
EDIT: Strange,Ive replugged the GPU to the screen and it doesn't output.
RE-EDIT: Nevermind, two restarts later it works.

✔ Best Answer
F8 should give you advanced boot options.
Tapping your BIOS set up key repeatedly from the moment you press the power button may work even if you do not see the splash screen.
If all else fails, unplug the SATA plug from the hard drive and you will be forcing it to boot to BIOS set up or an option for it.
Check that Fast Boot was not accidentally checked because this would cause your symptoms.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
