Hello everyone!
First - my system confg: i7 3770k, gigabyte ga-z77x-d3h, azza Titan 1000w.
Here is the problem. I just replaced my evga gtx 670 with new evga gtx 770 ftw and every time I start my PC it will stuck on bios for 2 min and then moves to black screen with a blinking dash in the corner. Cannot access bios or anything. Unplug my video card and connected to my integrated gpu via hdmi and it works. Went to bios and reset to default. Connected back my new gpu but still the same.
Please, let me know if you have any idea.

Thanks a lot!

Sounds like your card is messed up, or your pci slot es no bueno. It could also be that the new card is pushing on the ram, or other component. Try another card in your pc, check that your card has clearance, that its seated all the way in. Try hitting the little switch to reset your mobo.

Thanks for a quick reply. I actually found what was the problem - Bios. I had 2 missed updates ( Ive never done any updates on Bios, thought its not that necessary). Once update was completed everything is working just fine!
Thanks!

Hey so im having the same exact problem. I get the bios screen for 2 min and then the blinking line. I just got a GTX 750 Ti SC because I was due for an upgrade from my GT 610 OC. I took out the old one, put in the new one. Tried booting up. Got the bios problem. I tried updating my bios but the most recent update for windows 7 was from over a year ago (the 700 series came out much more recently than that). I figured that the bios update wouldnt fix it since its too old but i tried it anyway. The bios updated fine but the 750 still didnt work. I looked at the windows 8.1 bios update and its from 3 weeks ago (much more recent than windows 7). I talked on the phone with EVGA and they told me to go into the bios and turn off secure boot. There wasnt any option for it in my bios. He then told me to look for a UEFI option but mine is EFI (apparently thats the older version). Since there wasnt any of the things that he told me to look for, he suggested that i flash the windows 8 bios because that might reveal the secure boot option, then turn off secure boot, and then flash back to windows 7. I didnt want to do that because it can brick your mobo if you flash a bios for a different operating system. Please tell me how to fix this!! Should i just update to windows 8?? What if i do but it still doesnt fix it?? HELPPPP
