I have an ASUS P5S800-VM motherboard, it has always POSTed fine. Recently, with Rumble291's help (many thanks for the expert advice) I flashed my Sapphire Radeon 9550 which unlocks it to a 9600. Everything once POST has finished is fine, my Windows XP runs good and the graphics card is running more awesome than it was before (which is still pretty bad!)
The problem in particular is that it takes a long time to POST. It doesn't look like it's having trouble finding devices and completing, it's just that it takes a long time to display the information on my monitor. It will put out the motherboard make/model and BIOS update, then it will put out my RAM information and then it puts out my connected devices (optical drives, hard drives). When it is working on my connected devices it has finished a page and starts scrolling down. Normally this happened so quick you'd hardly notice it, just a quick scroll and then XP starts loading. Now everything doubles up (exactly the same line twice) like it's writing it on the next line and after it's done that for everything then it deletes the top one and continues.
I've also entered the BIOS setup utility and the problem is there as well. It takes about 2 seconds to load each page (before it was instant) and when I use the keyboard to move the selected line around it takes about 1 second to do this (before instant as well).
To fix the problem, I have found an updated BIOS from my mobo website, so I downloaded it and flashed (updated) with no difference. I now have BIOS update 1023, which is the latest. I thought that an update would fix it for sure.
Any ideas what could have happened? Or anything I could try? I guess I could just live with it, it still works, but I kind of want to know so I can fix it.
Thanks in advance.
EDIT: further clarification, so confusing to describe!
