The branded portion of the monitor is in the depression area. What i did was remove the bezel and the buttons...and I bondo'ed the bezel until the depressed area was flushed with the rest of the bezel.
I do see the bios boot up screen with my jetway 1.5. I just bought another mini-itx with the older intel 855 chipset...with the motherboard, it doesn't show the bios boot up screen.
At first I thought since everything is a standard, everything should compatible...but it's not the case...The intel 855 mini itx only works on 2 of my 4 lcd monitors. I think when it's in the bios boot screen, the video settings are not a supported by the LCD.
What you can try is to play around with the VGA settings...other than that, I don't think there is anything else.
