View Full Version : Startup

Does anyone know what this is for? And is there anyway to disable it? It's not bad or anything, but it just adds 5 or so seconds onto the startup. This appears after the motherboard manufacturer's logo, then after this screen it starts to boot into windows. Thanks

Not unless theres an option in the BIOS. No option, you'll have to wait

Pass, different mobos have different screens in the BIOS

If you look at what's loading its all the controllers on the Motherboard, usually there is something in the BIOS that will disable the display - wont stop them from happening / loading because if it did the PC wouldn't boot, just means you will get a blank screen for the 5 seconds or how ever long it takes.

I get that screen too but with just a couple of devices. Add's only a second or two so I've never even wondered what it is.

Try going into your BIOS and see if there is a setting for Quick (or Fast) Boot (may be on the same page as your device boot order settings).

Quickboot usually just turns off the memory test which takes the longest amount of time out of all tests that run

But to me it looks like it's waiting at the 'Verifying DMI pool data' stage.

There should be a setting in your BIOS Setup somewhere to 'Clear NVRAM' or 'Clear ESCD' which might stop it taking so long - otherwise BIOS update might help
