    Stuck on Motherboard splash screen after reboot

    From the desktop and clicking restart, then back to the desktop it takes 1:02.87 seconds to restart, splash screen to the sign in screen in that time. I am satisfied with the time.

    Is there a F-something key....

    Delete or F-2 gets me into the BIOS so I can change the boot drive....but, what I am looking for is a F-Key that will just show me a list of the boot devices on my computer without having to go to the BIOS. It just would save a few steps when changing my boot drive. Maybe ASUS does not have a...

    Is there a F-something key....

    Does anyone know if there is a F key to boot into the bios boot drives? In other words I want to restart my computer, press an "F" key and be presented with a boot list of the drives I can boot into, instead of going into the BIOS, finding the boot section, picking the boot drive, then...

    Stuck on Motherboard splash screen after reboot

    Thank you for all your help. I know that sometimes I did things on my own that you did not like and for that I am sorry. But otherwise you did your thing and I and my computer is better for it. I assume that because that one drive that has the bad SATA connection was the cause of my much too...

    Stuck on Motherboard splash screen after reboot

    Ok, I think the problem is solved. I unplugged the suspected drive. The SATA cable and the power cable. When I did a restart it took46.52 seconds to startup. I know it is probably not as fast as yours is starting up but it is wayyy better then 4 minutes. So I will try and replace the SATA cable...

    Stuck on Motherboard splash screen after reboot

    I have opened the case and checked all the connections and they are all connected securely. I took out all the drives except the 970 EVO stick because it is under the cooler and all the connections are secure. But there is one that is a little loose and the SATA cable does not "snap" into place...

    Stuck on Motherboard splash screen after reboot

    I am trying to work through your above posts but I checked my disk management and discovered that the 2 drive is now the 5 drive. I tried to initialize it but keep getting an error message. I have removed Handbrake for now. As far as Acronis and Macrium. I have them backing up my "C" drive on...

    Stuck on Motherboard splash screen after reboot

    Ok, I did a restart after doing the above. It seemed to boot faster but it still took over 3:15 to do it. I went back to the disk management and found that the disk 2 that I thought I deleted was back. I tried to initialize it but got an error. (see attached) I don't know what that it or where...
