Windows 7: Slow/Weird boot problem

Slow/Weird boot problem

Spec - Asus z97-ar / intel i5 4690k / 16GB / GTX 660 / Crucial mx100 512gb SSD

It takes very slow for my PC to get to the desktop ( about 40 seconds ) and i have no clue what the problem is. Two things usually happen which ill explain below

90 % of the time my pc will start up and the screen will say DisplayPort SIGNAL NOT FOUND and go into the windows logo screen which is quick ( 4-5 seconds ) then it the monitor will say Displayport SIGNAL NOT FOUND the screen goes black for about 30 seconds and then go the password screen and i type my pw in and it goes to desktop.

Now every once in a while i will boot up my pc and i will not get the DisplayPort SIGNAL NOT FOUND message it will just go right into the password login screen quickly but my USB mouse and keyboard freeze. They dont work. I have to wait the 30 seconds and then it works normal and i log into windows.

I dont know what it could be ive tried to reinstall gfx drivers and that did nothing. If anything can help i appreciate it.

Could be in the power options: Windows 7 will not output signal to DisplayPort - Microsoft Community

In addition compare the install you have to the perfect install compiled here to Clean Reinstall Windows 7

The thing is i tried it with DVI-D/HDMI/DisplayPort its all the same. It works perfectly fine its just that when booting up 90% of the time it will say no signal and then eventually it works.

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
A good test would be to remove the card and try the onboard graphic's vga or dvi connections to see if the same thing happens,
Cheers.

I tried that already and it goes straight into the windows password screen very quickly but then same problem. I cant use my keyboard or mouse ( both are usb connected ) for about 30 seconds and then they work fine afterwards.

Hi,
Your last post is confusing
Is the machine working better or not ?

Motherboards as sad is it might be never come with updated bios or need to be updated
Contact the manufacture documentation on how to check,
Cheers.
