Today I installed a GPU into my computer in anticipation of the new Star Wars Battlefront. Installation went well, but a couple problems have popped up.
First, boot time is very slow and buggy. I have an SSD and am used to ~10 second boots. Now, it gets stuck on the Gigabyte Motherboard screen for nearly 3 minutes, and is slow to proceed to windows after that. Also, before/during boot, it will only recognize HDMI, and will not send signal through the DVI monitor I tried first. I read about some possible changes to the BIOS that may solve the problem, but I cannot enter BIOS during boot (or any of the other options). What can I try to solve this?
My other issue is with the GPU drivers... the one that installed of the included disk leaves my monitors (TVs) looking absolutely beautiful, and perfect fit to the screen. However, my video games all crash on launch (.exe has stopped working). When I update to the latest driver using GeForce experience, the screen resolution reverts back the blurriness I was used to, and the edges are off the screen on all four sides (playing with screen resolution does not fix the problem). However, games run just fine. I have reverted back and forth between the two drivers twice. Can you help solve this driver issue? I don't want to choose between a beautiful screen and being able to play my games.
Here is the equipment I am using.
