BIOS screen hangs on restart, works great on shutdown/ startup??

I put together a new computer last week. The last problem I seem to be having is that if I’m in Windows 7 Pro (64bit) and do a restart, the Intel BIOS screen comes up and just hangs with 5A at the bottom. I tested it by going to bed and waking up 8 hours later with the Intel BIOS screen still stuck waiting…

If I’m in Windows and shutdown and to a cold restart the BIOS screen comes up for about 3 seconds and then boots into windows without issue.

Any suggestions as to whats going on? (Intel Motherboard in link below)

    Walter, I am having the exact same problem here on an acer aspire Z5801 AIO machine. I think it is a problem with the bios/UEFI bootpriority that gets changed.
  3. I'm having the same problem with dell vostro 400 . Any suggestions? Please help!!!
