Problem with slow POST Help?

I bought new video card before couple of days, and I have a problem. When I installed the video board in my MoBo and rebooted the system the POST (power on self test) was terribly slow. Before it passed for seconds, now it needs around 10-15 minutes. I tested the video on my neighbour's PC, and it worked with no problems. What is the reason for this? Do I need to change my MoBo?

Ok, you are not giving much of information. What is your video card? What is your motherboard? Did you test your motherboard with another video controller? We need more details to help you!

My motherboard is MSI MS 7293 and my video card is GT220. I have tested the motherboard with my neighbours 7300GT and it worked with no problems. I just don’t know what to do. I have never seen this problem before.

I did little research, its something connected with the BIOS version (either of the video or MoBo). From the information I gathered there are 4 solutions for you:

1. Go to the store from which you bought the video card and ask them to change it for other model.
2. Sell the card, buy a new one (after you do some research).
3. Buy new MoBo.
4. Wait for BIOS update from your card maker or your MoBo maker (I wont count on that though, your MoBo is old    
    enough, and from the things that I have read there is no VBIOS update from any of the card makers).

My suggestion is to go for 1 or 2.

This is not so good! I contacted my video maker and they told me that they don't have a solution for this problem. I guess I will return the video and get something else. Thank you for your help!
