Default Screen Flashing During BIOS setup

I recently assembled the following:

ECS G43T-M LGA 775 Intel G43 HDMI Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Intel Pentium E5300 2.6GHz LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor Model BX80571E5300
CORSAIR 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 Model TWIN2X4096-6400C5
Western Digital Caviar SE WD3200AAJS 320GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive
Sony Optiarc 22X DVD±R DVD Burner Black SATA Model AD-7220S
GEAR HEAD KBL7500W 2-Tone USB 2.4G Wireless Slim Wireless Desktop & Laser Mouse
Thermaltake TR2 W0070RUC 430W ATX12V Power Supply

After powering on I am able to enter BIOS but the screen flashes on and off about every 5-10 seconds. I am connecting to my 42" lcd with an HDMI cable. Let me know if you have any ideas.....

It's pretty tough for a graphics card to push out to a 46 inch screen, try lower res or just find you a computer monitor and see how that goes. I'm sure you will find this will do the trick. If not let us know.
