lately my boot time has increased by 15-20 seconds because my pc is "starting my video card" before it boots bios.

i can hear the fan starting on my 4870 run for about 15-20 seconds then bios kicks in.


wondering if my video card is going bad or its a psu problem?

well i moved about a month ago, but havent had any power outages or anything. (computer is always on surge protector anyways )
 
Well if you have not installed anything recently, new Drivers or software etc or had a power outage then about the only other way i can thing of your Bios getting mucked about is if the CMOS battery is on its way out.
