    Default Gigabyte GeForce GTX 660 (GV-N660OC-2GD) causes computer to hang at Splash screen

    For reference, here is my current System Info.

    I recently got the Gigabyte GTX 660 card as an upgrade for my computer. I installed a new Corsair 600w PSU in the computer for it, made sure it was plugged in properly, but whenever I boot up the computer with the GTX 660 card installed, it just hangs at the HP splash screen. It's unresponsive to any ESC or F-key command at that point, and has to be manually powered down.

    The computer still works fine with the old video card installed, including the new PSU. I tried HP tech support first, thinking it was a BIOS issue after troubleshooting on Google for a while. The HP guy seems to think that the card was flashed with a UEFI video BIOS that would make it incompatible with my current motherboard (an HP IPISB-CH2), as it has the most recent BIOS update.

    Is there a solution beyond buying a brand new motherboard? I'd be tempted to return this video card, but I have no idea if I'm just going to run into the same problem with a different card.

    There are apparently two BIOS updates for the GV-N660OC-2GD:
    GIGABYTE - Graphics Card - NVIDIA - PCI Express Solution - GeForce 600 Series - GV-N660OC-2GD

    Both of which are UEFI updates, which is what HP said I would not want my card to be.

    But my card causes the computer to freeze up on the Splash screen anyway, so I don't think I could update the BIOS even if I wanted to.

    I'm starting to think this video card is a lost cause, unless I pony up to replace the motherboard. I've been hoping to find a way to make this card work, but it seems like the more realistic solution is to try and find another card that is not UEFI. As I said in the first post... I also don't want to return this card just to get another one that's going to give me the exact same problem.
