I know people have talked about boot times of 3 minutes or more but I have a very unusual problem. My PC (1.8gz P4) hangs at the bios flash screen for minutes upon minutes and takes HOURS to reboot but then comes up and works fine. My best guess it's a memory or battery issue but I don't know how to get rid of the flash screen to acutally see what's going on and I can't find the motherboard manual. (Due to the time it spends at the flash screen I don't think it's a windows issue.) Also this started a few weeks ago and I didn't change anything hardwarewize. Any idea?? It might be time to just spend the $$$ and replace it. Thanks!
