    I have the Tyan Thunder K7 (S2469).

    It does a *long* memory test on boot (ie., numbers count up from 0 to 3072M,
    the 3G I have in the machine).

    Does anyone know how to disable this? It was OK before, but I messed with the
    bios settings but I forget which ones I changed. I tried all the obvious ones
    like "Fast boot", "Diagnostic screen", etc.

    Thanks for the reply. No, I've always had ECC check on (ecc, registered
    memory). Something else changed, but I can't figure out what it was.
    Anyway, it is not that big of a problem. I don't reboot that often...

    You need to set "quickboot" mode in the BIOS, reboot and allow a full memory
    scan/count to occur. Then the subsequent times you reboot you wont have to
    sit through the memory scan. Note: If you interupt the memory scan/count (eg
    press a key while it's happening) then it'll try to do the scan again the
    next time you boot, and will continue to do so until it's done one full scan
    without interuption.

    The ECC memory check happens when you first boot the PC (ie the long blank
    screen before video initialises) and is not related to the quickboot memory
