OK guys, Iíve got a custom build acting up on me. When I reboot the machine, it hangs on the first BIOS splash screen for like a minute and a half whereas before it would flash on the screen for just a few seconds and then boot on up. It does still boot after that minute and a half of hang time, but it worries me because it just started this a few days ago. There are 2 newer BIOS updates available for this MOBO, but Iím not sure flashing the BIOS right now when itís acting up is a good idea. There is one more thing, and I donít know if itís important or not, but when using any web browser, some pages will not load. I can surf and see most everything I click on, but then all of a sudden, I click on a link and it says it canít find the page. I checked the same sites and pages on a different machine, and they load just fine. So I cleaned all cache and temp files, reload browser, went back to those pages, and they loaded. But it would only work for a little while, and then it starts all over again. Iíve run virus scans and found nothing. Other than these issues, the system is working fine once it boots up and is running.

System specs;
Windows 7 Professional
ASUS Sabertooth 990FX
AMD FX-8120 Zambezi 3.1GHz 8Core Processor
CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB
SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6570 2GB
Seagate Barracuda 500GB
COOLER MASTER GX Series 750W Power Supply
