Recently my system have been acting strangely, I was away for 6 months and on return I found that when I started the machine it hung on the POST screen, right before detecting the drives. It works fine when i pressed the reset button. So I thought it might be a duff battery on the MB and replace it with a new one. Still no change so I thought maybe the battery I replaced it with was faulty as well... nope no change... what do you think can be the issue?

The system is not overclocked and just running normally
