|Just recently my computer has suddenly started to take ages to boot. Usually it would just start up, be black screen for a few seconds then show the full screen logo on the bios for another three or so seconds then it would perform the quick boot over yet another couple of seconds (if that) and would start to load windows.|
The windows start up time is the same, but now all of a sudden the bios hangs at the full screen logo for about 20 seconds. I've tried disabling the full screen logo and quick boot and then it shows the standard phoenix award bios screen, with the mother board and bios revision and the processor type, but nothing else happens for 20 seconds, then it finally starts testing the DRAM, and boots normally. Same happens if I have quick boot on. It'll hang at that first screen for 20 seconds before it boots normally.
The only thing that has changed at all recently is I got a new router, which uses a different internal ip address to my old one. However, I don't see how that could be anything to do with it. I unplugged the lan cable before I started the computer up and it is still hanging.
As I say the only thing that has changed since it was working and now is the router on the lan, nothing on the computer has been changed. Plus since this is hanging on boot it can't be anything to do with windows.
It would obviously help if I got some error messages but I don't get anything of the sort.
