Question about EliteGroup 755-A (ECS 755-A) Motherboard
You didn?t give a whole lot of information to go on but if the problem is just slow drive detection you can speed things along by deactivating the IDE drive slots that are unused. For example if you have one hard drive on IDE channel 0 and a CD device channel 1 disable the secondary spots on each channel, it will make the drive detection faster. If that doesn?t help give us some more specifics about your current configuration and we can pickup from there.

Tips for a great answer:
Download the latest BIOS update from your computer manufacturer's website onto a USB flash drive. Refer to your user manual to obtain the manufacturer's website address.
If the downloaded BIOS file is a zip archive, unzip the contents onto your USB flash drive.
Jumper settings may need to be reconfigured on some motherboards to enter BIOS recovery mode. Most Intel-based motherboards have a jumper setting or switch near the on-board
The procedure for setting the jumpers will vary depending on your motherboard make and model, so refer to the motherboard documentation for specific instructions.
Power on the computer and press "F2" to access the Setup Mode menu.
If you are unable to access the setup menu, you will not be able to proceed with this repair. Take your computer to a repair shop, as the motherboard may need to be replaced.
Use the arrow key to select "Boot Priority" or a similarly named field. Press the "Enter" key.
Scroll down until "First boot priority" or "First boot drive" is selected and press "Enter."
Select the USB flash drive as the first boot priority device. Press the "F10" key to save this setting and exit from the setup menu.
Connect the USB flash drive to an open USB port on your computer.
Then let your computer fully reboot.
The USB flash drive should be detected and the BIOS should update automatically.
When the update is complete, you may be prompted to restart your computer, or it may reboot automatically.
If you are able to use your computer without any further problems of overheating or failure to recognize drives, your failed BIOS update has been resolved.
hope this helps
