Stylin Posted January 14, 2006 Share Posted January 14, 2006 Hello, I seem to have an odd problem that I can only come to believe is ram. My system hangs for upwards of 5 mins during booting. On the post logo screen, it sits there for 5 mins, then it goes to the starting windows screen, and sits for 5 mins. After that, it goes to the blue welcome screen, and sits there for 5 mins, then it gets into windows, and takes 5 mins to load the desktop. I've reformated my harddisk, reinstalled windows, flashed my bios, rechecked all my settings. Same old problem. I was asked to look at my cooling from other sources. Everythings working correctly there. The CPU is cooled with a Thermalright XP-120 h/s and fan. Theres a 120mm fan blowing cool air onto the harddrives, and a 120mm fan blowing hot air out of the case. Theres also a 80mm fan in the side of the case blowing onto the motherboard and components. The bios fan is fine, the video card fan is fine. All bios settings are default at this point. Ram settings are auto, and it's running at 2-2-2-5. Memtest 86 found 0 errors. I'm not sure if this would totally exclude ram from being the problem, but at this point I can't see anything else causing it. Let me know any questions you may have for me, and I'll answer them ASAP. Thanks for the help. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
