    DP55WB very slow boot up.

    genesispc

      I've had this motherboard since Windows 7 has been released and built it up from scratch as a new pc.Somehting that I have now noticed is that the booting of the PC has been getting very slow, especially from a cold boot. The power turns on (power light is on). the fans spin right up. the screen remains blank, for around 10 seconds. then the POST screen turns up and the computer proceeds to boot. I have the latest bios installed. The thing that I find strange is that the period between the power being turned on and the POST screen showing up (with fans spinning at full speed) seems to be slowely increasing in time.

       

      My pc specs are as follows:
