    Windows 10 x64 v1703

    I upgraded to a GeForce GTX 970 and started to experience an issue when booting my desktop.
    I don't have a solution to your problem but would swap the graphics card back out and in to confirm the problem is in fact related. (btw you have also re-seated the card already?)

    I just swapped it today in fact, and it seems unrelated as the same issue occured!

    Haha just saw your post. I see we both had same idea at same time.

    you've also checked for bios updates? Also might try a rescue CD. Isolate if OS related or your h/w. For Windows, check out Gandalf ISO. Great rescue CD to have on hand in any case (I use Rufus to keep a bootable USB version handy)

    I attempted to update bios but in all honesty I'm not sure if I've done it correctly.

    I'm downloading the ISO at the moment, I assume if it boots correctly then it's safe to assume its a h/w issue and if it doesn't then it suggests OS?

    check your current BIOS version number

    If it continues to boot successfully from rescue, then it could be your current Windows OS (e.g. like a recent MS update just hosed you)

    If it fails, then likely problem with your h/w

    BIOS is up to date, will give rescue a go once downloaded

    Update: Attempted to boot from rescue ISO several times, and came across the same issue (notably this was only after I left it powered down for a little while, it booted perfectly if I immediately did an off/on)

    Since still occurring, IMO pretty much points to a hardware issue. (I'm more of s/w guy) Other then the basics:
    > Check / re-seat connections
    > Clear dust
    > Reset any customization (like overclocking)

    Perhaps someone else on this forum canhelp more then i can at this point. If you haven't already, I'd also post your problem on the ASUS board and Tom's Hardware. Good luck

    I've been having almost the same problem over the last few months. My solution has basically been to leave the computer on. It seems to restart OK from updates, but if I turn it off it takes between 2 and 10 attempts to get to the POST screen. I don't think the problem can be Windows even though it seemed to start just after an update. It happens before the motherboard has accessed the boot record. My next option will be to take the main box apart and check all plugs and connections.
