Help!! delay before bios after i replaced my graphic card

Hi guys
This is my first thread.. my computer is bugging me

Spec:
i7-3770 IvyBridge
8GB RAM
biostar tz68k+ motherboard
and a 2day old gtx 660
500HDD*1
160HDD*1

last week i upgraded my Mobo Bios so it could support Ivy bridge
and also changed my graphic card to Nvidia Geforce GTX 660

there is a blank black screen before bios that goes on for 10 sec~15sec
then everything else is normal
OS works properly drivers are updated to the latest version
I did a clean new install of OS

sata-IDE
and all bios settings are set as default...

Things i tried:

disconnected my graphic card and connected it with the internal graphic
(minus 3~5 Sec)

disconnected all SATA cables
(almost same)

i heard that Nvidia has it's own bios...
hmm...
still isn't it slow? the whole booting procedure takes 1min5sec
and the time from turning the computer on till hearing the
boot successful beep takes 11seconds

Am i being Picky?
I live in korea;; bought all the stuff there
that may help you track down the hardware...

Thanks

  1. before your computer goes to bios it does a POST which is power on self test...i dont know how you can speed it up but it basically means your pc is detecting all of the parts before it goes to bios and then to windows boot. in bios you might have an opton for a fast boot which will skip and not check all of your hardware on every boot...you can also disable other devices in boot order and only have your hard drive with the os selected
  2. So... You have no problem? And everything is fine. I am confused...

    no problem once the booting process is over..
    the problem is that the booting process takes forever :(

    should i try with the north bridge or south?
    im a newbie in hardware
  5. you can contact your motherboard manufacturer maybe they will have another bios update coming out soon to speed the post process
