Please help! Installed new gpu, now it takes 2-3 minutes to boot. Cant access BIOS, splash screen skipped.

I installed a GTX 750 ti, replacing my AMD 7770. Now the computer takes a few minutes to boot. I was going to update the BIOS to try and fix the problem. But when I turn the computer on the screen stays black for a few minutes before windows boots. Smashing del does nothing to access Bios. Once it boots the computer operates fine. But it's annoying, does this mean there's a bigger problem?

  1. Hi,

    Did you remove your old amd graphics driver???
  2. reset cmos first.

    could be multiple sound drivers causing a conflict....... I see TV listed above so it's hooked up with HDMI and you're also using sound through HDMI?.......... both amd and nvidia have HDMI sound drivers that install with the graphics drivers.

    been to windows updates lately?

    I did uninstall the old drivers, and installed the correct and up-to-date ones for the new card.

    Reset cmos, see splash screen. Now windows won't boot.
  5. got another hard drive from anything that you could swap out with the one you have?
  6. Do you happen to have the old video card?

    Try putting in again to see if the computer boots. This rules out perhaps a bad card.

    This. When I had slow boot problems is usually, bot not always, was a HDD problem.
  8. Hi did you find a solution? i'm having a similar issue.
  9. I have the same issue. But I have the op system on a new SSD that works perfectly with the old GPU. But with the new GTX 970, it takes forever to boot and I can't access bios. I don't think it's the HD, because I've tried two other GPUs (both more power hungry) and it boots up pronto with no issues. Something is causing the 970 to do this on various systems.
