I had lightning hit my house, lost a GFCI so I know it was the cause of my video card dying. I had a Geforce 660Ti that is now a paper weight (zero video even at BIOS). I bought a Geforce 770 that loads video at the BIOS but the monitor turns off after the boot screen. If I load the BIOS (F2) and choose boot manager Win8 loads no issue and everything runs fine. I've stressed tested the PSU and new GPU without an issue.

On-board video works fine. I know lightning means anything can be wrong, but since everything works fine after booting into BIOS it seems like maybe it can be fixed? Thoughts anyone? Thanks

Here is the core of my system,
- Asus Sabretooth z77
- Intel i5 3570k
- Patriot Intel Extreme 16GB memory
- OCZ 128GB SSD
- OCZ ZX 80Plus 1250w PSU
- EVGA 770 2GB Superclocked GPU
- Corsair H100

Have you tried going to the advanced bios menu and changing the "primary graphics" or "boot graphics" and setting it to PCI instead of onboard?

Yes, I had already switched over to PCI-E. I actually just fixed it.

I originally reset the defaults in my BIOS but I just flashed it with the same version. After doing that I just set boot priority and it came up fine. Thanks for the suggestion!

Just in case anyone cares I used the 2104 BIOS version and ran it through the EZ Flash utility.

Flashed BIOS (even with the same version), seemed to solve the issue.
