    Default Upgrade Graphics card, Slow Boot

    Hey everyone!

    I recently upgraded my graphics card to a Evga Geforce 780 GTX and with my Extreme 6 Z77 board, the bios went from a cold boot about 1.5 seconds to 1:30 before even seeing "Loading Windows" screen. It just hangs at this screen the whole time:



    Iím currently running the 2.70 bios since 2.80 seems only to change the flash server. Any thoughts on what I can do to fix this?

    Here are My Specs:

    Asrock z77 Extreme 6
    I5-3570K @ 4.5
    Evga Geforce 780 GTX
    8 Gig Kingston Hyper X Blu
    Samsung 840 Pro SSD
    Corsair CX600M PSU
    Windows 7 64 Bit


    Thanks in advance!

    -A

    You don't say what your previous graphics card was?

    Have you at least cleared the BIOS since changing cards?
    #1 - Please, when seeking help, enter the make and model of ALL parts that your system is comprised of in your Signature, or at least the model #'s in your System Specs, then "Save' it.
    ____If you are overclocking, underclocking, or undervolting any parts, informing us of this and their values would prove beneficial in helping you.

    #2 - G.Skill RAM Configurator for your boardSamsung Memory for your boardLatest AMD Chipset Drivers/WindowsLatest AMD Graphics Drivers/WindowsLatest Intel Drivers

    #3 - Please use the eXtreme Outer Vision Power Supply Calculator found HERE to determine if it might be your PSU at issue.
    ____Consider your PSU to be the foundation from which all else is built upon. Anything built upon a weak foundation is poorly built.

    Ah yes I did forget that part. I had a MSI Geforce 660 Ti Power Edition card and yes I tried clearing the Bios :-)

    You should be checking the Dr Debug display on the board while POST is hanging as it does, for a clue about what POST process is taking so long.

    Did you uninstall the graphics driver you had installed with the 660 TI, and then do a clean install of a new driver for the 780?
