Solved New GPU wont allow boot past bios

Specs: Windows
Hi all

I have just recently bought a new GPU (Rx 470 8gb armor OC) and replaced my old 750ti but now my pc wont allow me to boot past the bios splash page

I am not sure if the issue is my motherboard or something but I have not tried the GPU in another rig yet

But when I start up my pc it just stays on the bios page and if I try enter the bios it just does nothing until I press a couple more times then it starts to beep

I am quite sure that its connected properly and if i put the old GPU in it works perfectly

I have tried to update the bios (I updated through an exe file which automatically switched my pc off and updated without a USB not sure if that's correct)
I have uninstalled the old drivers before installing the new car
I have removed the CMOS battery for 10 mins

Please just any assistance will be much appreciated

PC specs :

I5 760 cpu
Mobo: dp55wb
750ti OC (old)
8gb 2333 mhz ram
PSU: 800w
Windows 10 64bit

If you're seeing the splash screen, the card is obviously working.

Have you ever updated the BIOS on that board? I don't know when it was discontinued, but it was launched in 2009, so it's fairly old.

Where did you download the BIOS update from? It should have come from Intel; anyplace else & you're taking a huge risk. However, I checked the Intel site & here's what it says:
"Device drivers for Intel Desktop Board are no longer available on Intel Download Center after September 13, 2019. BIOS updates are no longer available after November 22, 2019."

I don't know why you left the CMOS battery out for 10 minutes. Did you unplug the power cord 1st? That's generally a requirement when resetting the BIOS. With the power cord unplugged & the battery removed, the BIOS resets in seconds; however, using the jumper is the preferred method. Did you enter the BIOS & correct the settings? Obviously date/time must be changed, but there are numerous other settings that may need to be corrected to allow your system to boot to Windows.

BTW, did you try putting the old card back in?
