    I was getting that few weeks ago and found it very weird I took it to shop and they done it but they told me the boot order was wrong which im sure I checked once I was able to get into it eventually they said something to do with my card reader .. sorry if no help

    I already installed the bios,the instant flash version,more safe than the windows version

    True, but I dont recommend the Flash version since I do not know your expertise.

    Yeah, but I am talking in general, I do this with everyone, not just you :). It may be a RAM or HDD issue. Try running MemTest86 for a few passes (5 at least). Then try running SeaTools. Tell me the results.

    Get into the bios and disable C3/C6 State support and CPU Thermal monitor under Advanced frequency Settings, Advanced CPU Core Features

    I think it's just some bad conflict with hardware,maybe some changing to bios can help

    Virtualization isnt necessary unless you are running virtual machines. It is pretty useless otherwise, but there is no need to disable it, since it doesnt cause many problems. I am wondering why it would freeze at the splash screen though :confused:.

    Don't know....testing now.But I wish isn't the motherboard because it's new.
    Some post say to give some overvolt to cpu offset +0,010v

    It may be an issue with the motherboard unfortunately. The BIOS may be corrupted, not sure though.
