No access to BIOS + Black screen for few min. than all is OK.

Windows 7 64-bit
Motherboard: F1A75-M Asus
Hard Drive: Seagate Barracude 7200 Sata 3.0 320GB
Processor: Llano AMD A8-3850 2.9GHz Quad Core
Memory: 12gigs DDR3 1600MHz Corsair Vengeance RAM
Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX560Ti - 2gb GDDR5 - 256bit
(Dual Monitor - DVI)
Power Supply: 500w Apevia EDIT: I upgraded my PSU to a corsair 600w, and the issue is still occurring.

The entire system is brand new, purchased about a week ago.
-------------------------

When I boot or reboot my screen remains black for about 3-5 minutes and then
Windows 7 will boot. No text or error msg.

I do not see my boot screen (where it says "Press DEL to enter BIOS" ), nor am I able to boot into Safe Mode holding down the F8 key.


Any ideas on what could possibly be causing this?

  1. sounds like video card almost... or the onboard video displaying first etc -- plug your monitor into the onboard video and boot and see what happens - try all the ports one by one.

    OK, did u tried to reinstall the video drivers?

    Did u install the windows by yourself?

    Hey Apache, I did just try this. Unplugging the Dual DVI from my video card, and plugging in a single DVI (on board) allowed me to access BIOS, I had the splash screen and all.

    I could definitely say that the 560TI is the cause of it, however the card is running like a champ in games, no issues at all. What would cause this?
