Right that is good news.
When you next boot up, start hitting the del key from power up this will get you into the bios. There are other ways of getting into the bios but this is quick and pretty painless.
Now you can change stuff in the bios. First thing is (if you want that splash screen) to enable that feature. Many folks don't like it as they want the fastest boot into OS from power up possible. Me I never power my system down. Sleep is all I use. Once a month I do a power down and reboot.
Will check back later.
Hello mate - let me recap and see if I have understood you correctly.
You have untold issues with the VGU installed in your system. With it out using the on board graphics you boot no problem?
Right two things to try, well possibly three.
1. Swap out your PCIe lanes that you are using for the VGA. So if you are in slot number 1 use one of the other slots.
2. Swap out your VGA with a know working VGA and see if that is the issue.
3. Check the PSU cables to the VGA often those little metal connectors come loose in the six or eight pin plugs. Check (this is the possible thing to try)

Do you have another monitor you can try with? The QCODEs you're seeing are simply resume from sleep states and normal operation. Try what Hiviz has suggested above and see if you can replicate the problem on another panel, even if it's a TV.
If using a display port connection (especially with an aftermarket cable), switching to HDMI should help narrow things down.
