30 second delay between post and windows screen. HELP

Recommended Posts

I have had this problem since day one and I would love to correct this. It is an annoyance for me when I have to restart my computer and it takes so long.

 

The hard drive delay is 1 and the dfi logo is disabled. Anyone have this problem?

How many bootables are enabled if no fdd you can disable in bios the more boot devices enabled the longer the boot time.

Also your IDE HD should be set as 'master' (jumper) and be in the master position on the IDE cable which should be in IDE connector 1. If your Benq is on the same IDE cable it should be set as 'slave'. If it's on a second IDE cable by itself, it should also be set as 'master' on IDE connector 2.

my ide is setup like this

 

Before: IDE connector 1 (Master BENQ 1640, Slave Hard Drive)

IDE connector 2 (Master Hard Drive, Slave Hard Drive)

Positives: System Booted

Negatives: Long 30 sec delay between post and windows logo

 

Now: IDE connector 1 (Master Hard Drive, Slave Hard Drive)

IDE connector 2 (Master BENQ 1640, Slave Hard Drive)

Positives: None thus far

Negatives: Non System Boot Disk Error
