If that doesn't help the try the same with the Intel.

Have you checked the logs and system resources to see if there are any other clues to the boot delay: Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7

If not you can trace the cause with certainty by Gathering a Startup, Shutdown, Sleep, Hibernate, or Reboot Trace - Windows 7 Forums
I have the latest NVIDIA and Intel driver and the resolution of NVIDIA is less than Intel driver.

I will check other solutions provided by you and will let you know if problem persists.

Thanks

Were you saying that when you disabled Intel adapter the boot time corrected?

Can you boot into BIOS setup to post back a camera snap of the display adapter listings and their settings choices?

He didn't say, just that his resolution had defaulted to low resolution, due to either drivers not being installed, or he just needed to change the resolution.

I am curious too if disabling the Intel fixed his issue too.

Is this a card vs. a chip on the mobo? Either way it shouldn't have both of them showing up. One should be enabled in BIOS setup is the normal method.

Perhaps the settings should be investigated in BIOS setup. It would help to see some pictures of the display adapter listings and settings offered.

Using F2 I went to Bios, but there was no display setting details.

Here are the snaps.

I notice you also have UEFI disabled which means you should have Win7 installed to an MBR disk with EFI boot disk taken out of the BIOS boot order.

So please go back to the third page you provided in BIOS setup to expand Boot Device Priority to check and report back the boot order.

Then in Disk Mgmt check which option is available when you rightclick on the panel directly to the left of your HD: "Convert to MBR" or "Convert to GPT?" Do not select anything, just report back which is available:


I would also consider doing a trace which almost always will determine with certainty which is causing these boot delays: Gathering a Startup, Shutdown, Sleep, Hibernate, or Reboot Trace - Windows 7 Forums
