Boot Up

Boot Up
I had a question about my boot up time.

So when I first built my PC, my boot speed wasn't terrible, but over time, some repairs, some programs to fix/restore problems, now it isn't as good.

I have an i3-2120 on a Asrock mobo (I can't remember which one) some like PRO3 one that was recommended on here a few years ago.

One issue I notice, when I restart my computer, the Asrock splash screen comes up like 2-3 times, because after the first, my screen goes black with multicolored lines at the top forming and disappearing, it's really hard to explain exactly. But that continues for a minute or so then it goes back to the splash screen then Windows starts up.

Anyways, does anyone know a way I can like, reset my mobo, or a better program to fix any booting problems or something? Any advice is accepted, also if you need better info, ask me something and I should be able to give a better description based on what info you need.

Thanks ahead of time!

RE: Boot Up
if its a bios issue, first might clear cmos or set bios back to factory default and see if that fixes it. if it makes it past bios then it could be a corrupt MBR.(master boot record). which you can fix using the windows install disc and the repair option.

How do I clear the CMOS or set it to factory?

depends on the board. some have a jumper to move. some have a button.

google "cmos reset" and the model of your motherboard and you should find documentation.

RE: Boot Up
I agree with trying a CMOS reset.

Check your motherboard manual on how to do this. If you don't have it, it's on the motherboard manufacturer's website. Can't remember the model? Open your case and check on the motherboard, it should be indicated on it.
