Sorry that it took so long to answer, my parents forced me to go away for 3 days.

Thing is that I decided to disable some things in BIOS which I don't need would save me on boot time ( I ran restart time and it was 95 sec on almost fresh install of Windows)
I might be mistaken that I have dual boot but this is what I'm experiencing.
Before:
I push power button MB logo, something about Marvell, Boot menu (have multiple OS)
After:
Push power, MB logo, black screen, MB logo, Boot menu.

May I see screenshots of your Onboard Devices Configuration (just as thorough as mine if possible)?

Just in case, F12 takes screenshots and a USB flash drive is required.

Anyway, that's not a dual boot or anything. It sounds to me like maybe the Marvell ports are still enabled. If not, then it's something else which I believe I will recognize once I see your screenshots.

By the way, if you take screenshots using F12, then they get saved as 24-bit BMPs which result in large file sizes. So I recommend doing a Save As in Microsoft Paint and save them using the .PNG format. The high quality is retained, but the large file size isn't. wink.gif

Thanks for the heads up for the *.BMP Would have uploaded them as they where biggrin.gif

Anyways I'm going to post pictures in the morning, it's really late and this was a long day.

Here are the things you might be able to disable. However, check with yourself because I am not the one using your computer. wink.gif Only you will know what can be disabled and what can't. Most of these are what I would disable because they are things I've already disabled because I am not using them:
  1. Bluetooth Controller
  2. JMB Storage Controller
  3. JMB Storage OPROM
  4. Display OptionRom in POST
  5. Realtek LAN Controller
  6. Serial Port

I think if you disable the JMB Storage Controller, then the POST time will be reduced right away.

Anyway, my post above is not why I came to this club thread today. About an hour ago, the following happened which was very new to me. So, I'm hoping it has happened to someone else because I would love to learn why it happened and possibly how to prevent it from happening again.
  1. I was watching a YouTube video
  2. The video reached its end
  3. So I got up to go to the bathroom
  4. I came back to find that the computer froze (for the first time ever)
  5. I pressed the Reset button on my case
  6. There was no POST at all (the monitor didn't even turn back on)
  7. I pressed Reset again
  8. Still no POST
  9. I turned the system off
  10. I turned the PSU off
  11. I pressed the power button on my case a few times to discharge the capacitors
  12. Tried again
  13. Still no POST
  14. I pressed the Clr CMOS button (I held it down)
  15. The behavior of the startup attempt was different this time, but still no POST (so, the CMOS was indeed cleared which I later confirmed at the end of this whole thing)
  16. I finally noticed that the boot device and VGA LEDs were lit up on the motherboard
  17. I replaced my 580 with my 470
  18. My system worked just fine, but I had to install the driver on top of itself.
  19. I shut down
  20. I put the 580 back in
  21. Now my system is back to normal with my 580 in it and it all works fine.


So after all of that, I discovered that all I had to do was put my 470 in, turn the system on, get a successful boot, shut down, and put the 580 back in.

I would love to hear from someone who has experienced this and knows what happened and how to prevent it from happening again. redface.gif

Updated to 1805 and is it just me, or is GPU usage more stable?

Seems to have fixed a crash problem I was getting with Deus Ex HR.

Which video card driver version did the above occur on?

I'm gonna guess that the freeze followed by the improper windows shutdown probably corrupted your video drivers and when you put in the 470 it loaded with the basic windows drivers. The real question is why did your computer freeze when watching youtube? try updating flash? running a virus scanner? I honestly wouldn't worry about it if it's the first time ever freezing.
