Hi, I have a Gigabyte G1 Z170X motherboard. It has the latest BIOS. Recently it takes about 3 minutes to boot up. It turns on and off about 3 or 4 times before the BIOS screen shows up. Do you know what could be the cause of this? I removed my video card but that didn't seem to fix the issue. Thanks.

I recently replaced the heat sink. I hope this is not the case but maybe I bent the CPU pins on the motherboard and it's causing the issue. Would this cause the issue? Thanks

I would contact gigabyte after you unplug the PC and remove the battery to reset the Bios.
