I installed a GeForce GTX 650 on my desktop but since then when my PC boots it stays on the BIOS approximately 30 seconds. Before it was only 2 seconds and I don't know why. Maybe I read that I need to update my BIOS, but I don't know how, and it seems complicated. How to remove the boot delay?

The extra time is the time required to run the new graphics card's firmware intitialization routines.

  • No it's been one month and it's still doing the same thing :/

  • The initialization routines have to run every time the system boots. It will be the same a year from now.

  • So, it's normal to wait 30 sec... ? Or Can I do something ?

  • For that card? It would appear so. Different cards may have different load times / timeout values. But it is normal for a boot to take longer if you've added new hardware.
