[SOLVED] PC freezes at POST then restarts with new graphics card

I recently upgraded from gtx 560 to gtx 760. The problem is I can't access and get past BIOS. I already tried the new gpu in another computer and its working fine. Please help me.

My PC specs:
i3-2120
ECS H67H2-M3 v1.0
Kingston 8gb (2x4gb)
Seagate 2TB (2x1TB)
Zotac GTX 760 AMP! 2gb
Seasonic S12II 520W 80+ Bronze

I also tried the following:
-reseat the GPU (no changes)
-reseat the RAM (no changes; also tried only ram, no changes)
-check power cables (no changes)
-check motherboard standoffs (no changes)
-updated BIOS to 03/28/12 (no changes)
-reinstalled Windows (no changes)
-cleaned drivers (no changes)
-holding power button while POST freezes (no changes)
-removed peripherals (no changes)
-clear CMOS (no changes)
-check if Legacy or UEFI BIOS (it is Legacy)

Everything is working fine if I only use the integrated graphics. I suspect its the BIOS update even though it is the latest (03/28/12), it is still old for my gtx 760.

Edit: I received a BIOS update from ECS support and it works.

  1. Go in with IGP and uninstall all drivers, and all other things nVidia then try again.

    If that don't work, uninstall all drivers, use a registry editor like ccleaner to remove anything that hints at nVidia. The window has two panels... if you check and clean just one category at a time (check just 1 of the 15 or so boxes in left panel) it's eier to manage. Do not let cccleaner fix anything if it doesn't say nVidia in one f the columns

    I tried uinstalling all drivers via DDU and still not working. Even performing a clean install of Windows doesn't work.
