Hey forum....i wondered if anyone has the know how....

I am using Windows XP with SP 2....And, i am having a problem with the initial start up of my computer...When things are running smoothly, (from total shut down to windows ready) the computer usually follows the following on screen sequence:-

Power button pressed-------------------Sound of start up (blank screen) 1-2 seconds
----Intel Splash screen displays 1-2 seconds
----blank screen 2 seconds
----Windows XP boot screen 6-8 seconds
----blank screen 2 seconds
----windows user select screen......etc...

Unfortunately there is a large system hang on the Intel spash screen :-

Power button pressed-------------------Sound of start up (blank screen) 1-2 seconds
----Intel Splash screen displays 130 seconds
----blank screen 2 seconds
----Windows XP boot screen 6-8 seconds
----blank screen 2 seconds
----windows user select screen......etc...

I can only assume that this is something to do with a bios fault, or there is a hardware fault. I have read about trying to find information about this, and came up with nothing. I do believe if i removed the splash screen..i would be able to see the initial "post bios" sucess/errors list.

So the question i am asking is....does anyone have an idea what the [bleep] is going on...? Is it possible to see the post bios reports if i remove the intel splash screen...? And/or is there a piece of software that allows me to see the post bios reports assuming that theres a good chance it cannot function in this stage and wont start logging unitl the initial boot of the windows platform.?

Please help...i havent got much hair left to tear out :-)...

You need to go into the BIOS and disable the splash screen. What it is called varies from system to system. Do you know what brand mainboard you have?

I dunno what i done but when i used my BIOS POST card during start up for the first time i was looking at the digits waiting for it to hang on one and before i knew it..it had loaded windows...I tried it again and i found it has stopped hanging on the boot screen....????

I would love to know what the heck happened but its all working fine now....

Thanks to...GeneralAres for giving me a look in...Cheers for the help.:-)

If you found this string and you have the same problem as described....sorry cant help you here...
