Hey all, sorry if this is in the wrong place, first time posting. After powering on my computer, it takes a while until my display will turn on, I need to wait until I hear the beep, but the beep takes about 10-15 seconds to occur. What could be causing this issue?

Is this a new build? has this always been the case?
post your specs
sometimes post takes a few seconds to check everything.

Try booting with no usb devices attached except your mouse & keyboard. In your BIOS, is there a fast post option?

I only have the usb and mouse connected. And no, it does not have a fast post option.

Make sure that your main boot drive is listed first in boot order i'm guessing the SSD?

It won't allow me to, it requires that I put the "bootable add in card" first, whatever that is. Then i have ssd and my two hdd following that.

hmmm ...
you can try disabling anything you don't use in the BIOS and see if that helps.It's also possible that your CMOS battery is dying and that's making it take longer to POST.
after that i'm all out of ideas.
