    Default Start up issue

    Hey there, ever since that 7.0 earthquake my
    PC has been having some startup problems. It wont load past the gigabyte motheboard logo screen. It has been temporarily fixed by unplugging the computer from the wall and leaving it for a few mins before turning it back on. However this doesnt seem to work anymore. Does anyone know what might have caused this?
    Thanks

    The computer works ok now that i've left it unplugged for over an hour lol. Not too sure what will happen next time though.

    This is the screen its stuck on, incase it helps.

    Disable the logo in the BIOS. It didnt reset the BIOS or something did it?? I would check the BIOS and see if whatever is on the right setting

    Try get into the POST screen, see where it's throwing an error or freezing if possible

    press tab, look for any errors. holding pause should stop it where it's at if it flicks past too quick.
    Also, unplug it and press teh power button a few times, and let it sit. Could be some sort of residual power issue.

    Sorry to bring up an old post, but the issue is still lingering. I have now concluded that it occurs randomly. Not every startup, maybe like 1 in every 5 or 10 start ups.
    I've disabled the logo screen and happened to take pics of where it hangs during startup. Hope these help!

    This is during normal startup

    And this is the bit where it hangs, forcing me to restart.

    Try unplugging whatever's plugged into the first SATA port and see what happens. (Is it a DVD drive?)
