When I installed the video board in my MoBo and rebooted

I bought a new video card couple of days before 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.

Earlier it paused for seconds, now it needs around 10-15 minutes. I tested the video on my neighbor's PC and it worked with no problems. What is the reason for this? Do I need to change my MoBo?

Ok, What is your recording cardboard? What is your motherboard? Did you change your motherboard or add to it? We require more information to help you!

I conducted some investigations, its something connected with the BIOS variant (either of the recording or MoBo). From the content I gathered, there are 4 solutions for you:

1. Go to the outlet from where, you bought the video roster and ask them to change it to a new one.

2. Sell the record, buy a new one (after you do some investigation).

3. Buy new MoBo.

4. Ask for BIOS update from your bill maker or your MoBo shaper (I am not sure you should be counting on that though, your MoBo is old  enough, and from what I see, there is no VBIOS update from any of the record makers).

Power On Self-Test should only take a few seconds to finish, even with expansion cards installed on the system. It shouldn't take 10-15 minutes to finish.  The computer should already boot up by then and you should have already started using the computer.

Since your video card works fine on another machine, the problem may be with your motherboard. Try to reset the BIOS settings to default. If that doesn't work, try flashing the BIOS. If there's an updated version, update it.

If that still doesn't work, try a second slot for your video card, if there's another one. If not, you may need to have your motherboard replaced.
