Hello, I'm getting some issues with my BIOS.
I have to wait 40-60 seconds on a black screen with a CMD-like keyboard cursor. Then it BIOS fine. Then it takes more 20 secs with a blinking cursor and finally the System boots.
It wasn't happening before. I didn't change any BIOS settings, and I have uptated it to the newest version (SOX5810J.86A.5561.EB file)
I'm running a full updated win 7 ultimate 64-bit
Can anyone help me?
I think that is normal. My DX58SO does the same. If you want, time the events you see on the monitor and I'll do the same to confirm.
I just timed my start up from cold start. The results are:
steady cursor appears on black screen: 19 secs
flashing cursor begins: 32 secs
Win 7 Pro x64 starts: 47 secs
Desktop appears: 97 secs
Desktop completes loading: 135 secs
My system: DX58SO w/ i7-920 & 6GB memory.
