|Got a computer running just fine, but starts doing this:|
When starting up, or restarting, after the screen blacks out at the actual machine restart, the BIOS logo (American Megatrends) is shown very briefly, after which the screens stays black, for about half a minute.
Then, the normal boot info (the American Megatrends logo and all of the normal text) appears on it, nothing indicating a problem, and after this, the machine works all OK.
I've noticed that on boot/restart, the BOOT_DEVICE_LED stays on for about the same time that the machine appears to hang with a back screen.
It's really black (!), not just no signal, since the screen itself does not go into standby, which it does when the computer is shut down.
Like to know what is going on, I'm suspecting a failure being announced. I'm going to test my boot-disk
