Hi all,

So I have been having problems with my pc booting from day 1 when I bought it from CyberPowerPC. I have all my drivers installed and Windows 7 running on a 128GB SSD and a 2TB drive for storage. It can take up to 5-10 minutes for my pc to boot, it will get stuck at certain points during booting and I will have to hard boot my pc and switch off the psu and start again. Sometimes it will take just a minute for it to boot, though from my understanding it should be under 10 seconds from an SSD. I am thinking it is a problem with my mobo, please help!

(My full specs are listed under my name on the left hand side)

I know when I have my external 2TB drive plugged in, sometimes my boot time slows down. To fix that problem I went into the BIOS and told it to ignore the drive.
You might want to check in your BIOS to see how they have set the boot devices...
But honestly 5-10 minutes probably means something else is slowing it up. At what stage during the boot process does it stall at?

With an SSD properly installed it takes between 15 and 30 sec. Properly is the key

Typically when you have a hang on boot. (more than two minutes) its hardware related. Most of the time its a piece of hardware not playing along with the system. Not the motherboard but rather a hot swap drive, printer, USB device or drive, web cam, card reader or something like that. First thing I do is start unplugging stuff and see if it stops

One time it turned out to be the sound card. I disabled the GPU sound and it boot correctly

It usually stalls at the Gigabyte screen, and I can't access the BIOS because it does nothing when I press the required key.

You have the most recent BIOS update? Are you sure you're pressing the correct key to enter that BIOS? My Asus boots so fast it came with a utility to reboot directly to BIOS. Well with a dual-boot Linux setup I have most of the fast boot stuff disabled but it's still damn fast.

If you're familiar with the machine, maybe reset the CMOS.

Or even just disconnect the 2TB drive and then do a couple of boots and see what happens.

It's something hardware/setting/detect-wise.

The first time it did, but the second time it got stuck at the Gigabyte screen and I had to hard boot it.

I'm not sure, I don't think that there is an option in the gigabyte drivers for the BIOS..

I bought it a while ago and I have just dealt with it but it had gotten worse, I don't think it's under warranty anymore. I will just disconnect the drive and see what I can do.

I think you might have a memory issue. Have you tried resetting the CMOS? I would also do a BIOS update. You will need to get the most recent one from gigabyte.com. Not from the disc you have given. BIOS updates are not done in Windows, unless that's how Gigabyte wants you to do it.

Im not sure why you didn't just call of CyberpowerPC day one when you were having the issue, let alone, even bothered buying a computer from them.

Memory or HDD issue

TRY:
Removing a stick & or
upping the voltage

unplug 2TB drive

Enable staggered spinup in bios (I had to do this)

and see if your boots get faster

Have you tried a clean re-installation of windows? it is possible that there may be an update in process getting "stuck" in the installation process.
Also by re installation I mean CLEAN, not a backup OEM copy. I would also disconnect all drives except the SSD which you are installing windows.

the bad choice is the cpu that has a gpu inside .
all others cpus you can install are below the one you use . boot is long because the mvp virtue is a chipset that hold the intel gpu and the nvidia . it tries to get the "best" mixing them ..... but nvidia can not bear that way : check hyper sli here and hybrid physx : softwares made to patch nvidia drivers...
change the mobo for a lga 2011 or an amd socket if you want to play games or may be 2 ati 2x0 instead of the nv.

The boot was slow before I had a 780, I had a Radeon 6950 2GB instead
