Boot hangs at HP splash screen with GT-730

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Installed new graphics card GT 730.    On startup HP screen comes on, beeps once after ~30 sec, then beeps once again after about a minute, then beeps one last time after a minute.    Splash screen goes away and is replaced by a three line black DOS screen that says NVIDEA GT730 something or other....then just sits there.     


I can get Windows to load eventually after a few power ups if I hit <esc>, then the return several times just right.   I have AMI 7.16, 3/23/2012 bios.

Is there another bios that will work on this mb and allow a smooth boot with this card?

BIOS 7.16 is the latest BIOS version posted for your product number.


Try clearing the CMOS is what most graphics card manufacturer will suggest.


There are some gimmicks as you have suggested but then the PC is not booting normally.
