its my first time here and I have got a big problem with my desktop - I hope you
can help me. I am working on this issue for days.......
A few days before I flashed my BIOS of the Mainboard from the F9 version to F11 version.
The F9 version is working properly.
After flashing the F11 version I got the following problem (unsteady often):
After switching on the computer, BIOS, Memory and all drives are found - no problems.
Then the first windows screen appears (Win7 Logo with rotating coloured balls) and
a few seconds later switches to the welcome screen - first "please wait" and a few moments later "welcome" (I hope thes messages are the same as my german version).
Very close before or while switching to desktop screen the start freezes and reboots again.
The second start and further starts are okay , no issues.
Only the first start after a longer switch off period (more than 1 hour) this issues comes up.
I flashed back the safed F9 version, no issues , everything is still working fine.
Reflashing F11 version, the problems are back again..........
I hope you are able to help me.
Please find my specifications below.
Thanks in adavance.

Dude, if it ain't broke don't fix it. What's so important ?
Did you try the BIOS update tool that should be on the mother board disc or you could download it on line. These tools work really good from the Windows desktop.
You shouldn’t upgrade the BIOS unless you have problems that need to be fixed. The one thing that you MUST do after you upgrade the BIOS is to then clear the CMOS memory, failure to do so can lead to unpredictable behaviour.
