How do you expect anyone to help you if you supply NO information about your machine!!!

It would help if we knew your system spec and current setup information.

There could be a hundred reasons why nothing is displayed for 23 seconds on your machine!

A friend with a similar problem corrected it by not adding any peripherals until windows was up and running. If not too much of a hassle you could remove your HDD and your GPU and reinstall windows on your ssd. Then add your stuff back one piece at a time. Let each item be found-reboot-then add the next item. Also I'd like to know a little more about your ram spec's. Hope this helps you. :)

Thanks - the ram looks good.
Just on the off chance don't forget "For optimum performance, if only one PCI Express graphics card is to be installed, be sure to install it in the PCIEX16_1 slot" per Gigabytes instructions. :)

Hi, may i ask you a question?

What type of Anti-Virus / Anti-Spyware protection do you use for your machine? When I looked at your system spec, everything looks fine, there is no need to change parts.
The only problem is down to the OS boot-time, Bios Setup or the motherboard itself...

Also, double boot is rare. Some motherboard does that...

My laptop boots and goes from Logo Screen to black screen and boots again (Black Screen + Underscore Flashing) at stage two towards Windows.
