Windows 7: Windows 7 long IDLE time on booting process

Windows 7 long IDLE time on booting process

Hello guys,

I have a problem with my computer that I cannot fix, I recently bought the AverTV Capture HD and plugged it into 1 of my free pci-express slots.

Now my computer takes like 20 extra seconds to boot to desktop, I replaced the card to another PCI-Express slot but the problem persists, when I remove the card it boots like before, with no IDLE.

My motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-x58-UD5, latest Bios, latest drivers etc...

I don't know if it's the card or maybe the motherboard or just Windows 7.

This is a Winbootinfo screen to show you the IDLE time between the bios screen-win7 booting screen and @desktop.

Thank you guys I hope you could help me out I don't know what to do >_<!
