Booting/CMOS Setup using external USB Display Adapter

HP Recommended
Pavilion 23 all in one

The screen is shot on this machine --I have a USB to VGA adapter, but can't get it to activate.  Because I have no screen I can't go through the typical Driver install .... is there a way to force the system to boot to the USB Display adaptor?

 

thx in advance!

Hi there @DMillerassociat,

 

Welcome back to the HP Support Forums! I understand that you are looking for a way to use a display connected using a USB display adapter as your boot display.  I am happy to give you a hand with this.

 

I do not believe that this is currently possible, for several reasons. First the system BIOS would need the ability to recognize the USB port connection as a standard video connection. You would almost certainly need to either disable or disconnect your existing built in display, and you would also need the drivers that make a USB video adapter  work installed.  If the BIOS does not recognize the device as a valid video device  inherently you will never get a display, when you need to get into the BIOS setup.

 

I hope this makes sense, and if it does answer your question, please mark this post as a solution. Kudos would also be appreciated.
