The above computer is hanging for 3 minutes on the splash screen before continuing to a normal boot. I have a normal Boot.ini file.
I press the start button - get one beep and graphics card displays - splash screen displays and stays on this splash screen for three minutes with a solid light on the Hard Drive light. After three minutes Windows loads as normal.
However, if I press DEL to enter into CMOS info and then exit without any changes, the computer goes directly to a successful loading of Windows!
Could anyone tell me what is hapening?
