As the other guy already said, re-seat the card...this can sometimes do wonders. Check that your PCIE connectors are..well..connected. CMOS BIOS RESET cannot hurt either. Check BIOS for possible settings related to the PCIE slot. Try changing card slots. Putting new hardware into a board and not booting is IMHO rather unusual. A defective card is more likely. It's also possible that the PSU is a low quality PSU and although it has 700W written on it it might have problems supplying the required power.

And if some of you guys are having board BIOS issues and are not sure about which BIOS to get and how to update BIOS I recommend you ask on the forums/support for your motherboard rather than here. You might have better chances on the Asrock etc. forum.

Check your bios settings to see if you have a setting called PCI ROM Priority. (only applies if you have a motherboard that has UEFI) Trying switching back between UEFI Compatible, or Legacy PCI. If not, or that does not fix it, you more than likely need to flash the motherboard BIOS to a more recent version.

The solution is easy: disable UEFI PCIE boot. Use Legacy PCI mode. They has something broken in their UEFI loader. Surpised, huh? BIOS bug.. coil whine.. false specs.. I'm starting to enjoy all this.

I had to install a new version of the BIOS to be able to boot.

Specs ASrock x79 Extreme i7 3820 @ 4.4 Noctua NH-D14-2011 double 16 Gigs DDR3 hyper x kingston corsair cx600 ocz vertex 3 Win 7 64x gtx 970 asus strix from gtx 550 ti asus Same problem. Removed old gtx put gtx 970 booted in windows (not normally) 3 bibs no access to bios menu. Installed drivers from cd and updated. Restarted again no access to bios menu and 3 bibs and nothing. Put back old gtx 550 ti, all is good as before. Went to bios menu set in Northbridge menu Gen3 for the pci slot that the 970 will go and most importantly after reading here the comment of LancerDawg48SP set under bios boot menu PCI ROM priority to legacy. Put gtx 970 back in. Booted in windows gave me minimal graphics, had to restart. Now, I have access to bios menu, no 3 bibs and all drivers and monitors are working fine at full res, as I had installed them (drivers) from before. Thanks @LancerDawg48SP very helpful. No need for bios update. Cheers

I bought an MSI GTX 960 2G on Saturday and ran into this same problem, albeit the bootup would continue after a minute and a half. I was already about to update BIOS or return the card or something.

Just adding myself here to this pile, after posting in another place. My system is not getting along very well with the GTX 970. The simple fact of having it plugged in the Asus Maximus VII Hero mobo makes the system to restart after few seconds from the login. I've tried different ways, with or without drivers, but the only way it's to disable the video card or to physically unplug it. Whenever I got a restart, the error triggered in the debug screen of the mobo is "0E", which should be a CPU related error called "Microcode not found". I think it's just the video card messing up with the system, as removing or disabling it the PC runs perfectly. The system is all brand new. Please notice that I've already: 1) Cleared the CMOS; 2) Installed the latest BIOS; 3) Made a clear install of the OS; 4) Checked the RAM situation thoroughly. Last but not least, I've tried to disable the GPU built in the mobo and switch it to PCI-E manually, just to see if there was a conflict with the auto settings. That was bad, because the BIOS didn't manage to save all the time I've tried, shutting the PC down and restarting it abruptely without keeping the changes of the GPU. Here's my config: Intel Core i7-4790K, 4x 4.00GHz Asus Maximus VII hero Gigabyte Nvidia GTX 970 Gaming edition Corsair Vengeance + Corsair Vengeance LP - 8x4, 32 Gb total (1.50 V, 1600 MHz) SSD Sandisk drive WD HDD Windows 8.1 updated If Nvidia knows this issue from a long time, they really need to fix this, since it's a shame. I'll probably return the card to the vendor and buy another card, at this point.

I've had the same problem. If you think you've bricked it, take out the graphics card, unplug the power, then remove the motherboard battery. Wait a few seconds, put it back in, then boot into your BIOS to set the clock. Boom, fixed. Then go out and buy a different graphics card :(
