10 sec stall after BIOS upgrade

Hi everyone,

first of all I'd like to apologize for my english, I'm Italian. So excuse me if there will be grammar errors or brief explanations. Feel free to ask whatever you want, I'll try to answer as best as I can.

This is my system:

CPU: AMD A8-3850 2.9Ghz Llano GPU HD6550D
Motherboard: AMD F1A75 (basis model)
Video Card: Sapphire Radeon HD6570 2Gb
Sound Card: ASUS HDAV 1.3
Hard Disk: SSD Crucial M4 64Gb
RAM: Corsair Classic XMS3 1600Mhz, 2x2Gb
Power Supply: Corsair Builder Series CX430 430W
OS: Windows 7 Professional

I have upgraded my BIOS, but after that every time I power the PC it gets 10 seconds to load the BIOS and start the system normally. The screen keeps black and nothing happens.
I tried to use older BIOS versions but the problem remains.
I also tried to reset the BIOS system, pulling out the battery for 10 minutes and with the CMOS but nothing improves.
What can I do?

Here are the BIOS sreenshots:
















Thank you for your kind help,

  1. It may be a bit normal, try and reflash back to the old BIOS, reset the CMOS, and see if that does it. In that process, set the BIOS to default state and see if your problem will be fixed.

    Next, disconnect everything from the board, leave 1 stick of RAM, remove vid. card (if board has on-board/on CPU graphics) and disconnect all the drives to see if that helps. If it boots fine with no drives connected, it may be a setting for drive options (AHCI, RAID, etc...)

    Post back with your findings from that. Hope it helps!
  2. A ten second delay is not all that bad. My computer has always had about 10-15 seconds delay between power on and the BIOS boot display showing up. This is the time that the motherboard is waiting for the power to become stable, starting up all of the devices and copying the startup code into memory. That takes a little bit of time.

    I would suggest that you take advantage of Windows ability to go into sleep mode by selecting the balanced power profile. On a desktop system this should allow the system to return to fully functional in about 6-10 seconds after coming out of sleep mode.
