Question about ASUS P4S800-MX Motherboard
I recently installed a 1GB stick of RAM and a new WD HDD into a friends old computer (with the p4s800-mx). At my house everything worked out great. Got it all going right away, but when i gave it to him and he took it home he said the next morning it was not working right. I took a look at it and I'm not too sure where to start.
Problem: When I press the power button the system turns on and shows bios screen, as usual, but it pauses for about 45 sec. - 5 min. before finally going through the PnP detection and showing the usual: Primary master HDD : xxxx , etc, etc.. it then promptly shows the XP logo where it loads a few seconds. Instead of showing the welcome screen it sits for another 30 seconds- 2 minutes of black screen before starting. To add to this it takes an exceptionally long time to load to the desktop once a user is selected. Yet after all this it runs perfectly through his kids games, streaming video, and even under stress tests and benchmarks such as OCCT, Prime95, and 3DMark06.
Any help would be appreciated.
