check your start up items in msconfig and uncheck the unnecessary ones that don't need to run at start up

Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers

Is your AntiVirus software performing a scan each time you boot? Sounds like something is running at boot up.

Did it start this behavior all of a sudden or gradually?

Open the case and watch the CPU fan when you are cold starting the computer. See if that fan is turning like it does after the computer does start. If the CPU cooling fan does not turn fast enough, the computer will not boot.

Try installing HWMonitor and use it to monitor the system temperatures and voltages. Maybe your power supply is failing and not providing the proper voltages. The 3.3V, 5V, 12V rails should all read within 5% of those values +or-. Get HWMonitor at the link below.

Blow out the crud. Use canned or compressed air. DO NOT use a vacuum cleaner. This can be messy so you may want to move the tower elsewhere. Be sure to also blow out the power supply from both ends.

After that, re-seat all the cables and cards. Snap the memory modules each in and out 4 or 5 times to burnish the contacts.

no problem with the cpu cooling fan, I checked everything downloaded the
HW Monitor no problem with the power supply either, it is a mistery. I came to
the conclusion I have an other new Motherboard I probely will exchange the
Motherboards. Thanks so much for all your help.

I kind of doubt it is the board. More likely to be the power supply.

Hi
Just to let you know it is a mistery, put a brand new Power Supply in
but it is the same thing, I wait 5 minutes and it works.

Thanks Horst

Then you have something set to run/scan at start up as mentioned above. I am assuming it is always 5 minutes.

check for defective capacitors and replace them. be careful though coz the motherboard's circuits are on both sides. u can easily spot a defective electrolytic capacitor coz it's bulging on its top
