Temporary Freeze while booting

  1. RE: Tyan mobo # S2080, 12/01 American Megatrends Bios

    Hi, I sent an email to the mobo mfr, TYAN , but I don't think they can
    be bothered.

    When I boot up and still in BIOS, the computer freezes at WAIT for 40
    seconds and then continues on OKAY!! . If I click DEL, it shows that
    it is looking for the Bios setup, freezes for 40 secinds and then goes
    into Bios Settings. And from there, all is fine.

    I've gotten to the point that when I boot my system, I leave for about
    5 minutes and come back. Can't stand staring at a frozen computer.

    Any clues?? Please?

    Hope Tyan answers, I'm going nuts!
