  1. I might have an idea. Go to BIOS and check your initial video output port. If it's set to anything different from PCI-E, the motherboard will take some time (20-25 seconds you have) checking other ports (PCI, integrated VGA) before outputting video signal through the PCI Express graphics card. Change the initial port to PCI-E.
