I've built a system around the K9N SLI Platinum and have a strange problem.
The POST is VERY slow and likewize is the BIOS setup VERY slow. Though, when the windows bootup logo is displayed the computer seems running as it should, as far as I can see. From power up to the windows logo show takes maybe 10 minutes, then windows boots in a few seconds. And windows seems to be running as it should.
When entering the BIOS setup it can take minutes from a key stroke until the actual menu choice is altered.
At startup there are a few beeps. From what I have found in this forum they are related tu USB devices, but it seems a little strange since the amount of beep doesn't seem to change if I unplug the devices. Anyway the beeps are as follow:
L H P L L P L L P H
Where L is a low pitched beep, H is a high pitched one and P is a pause.
K9N SLI Platinum, with BIOS rev. 1.7 (I have upgraded from 1.2, which the board had when I got it)
AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+
Corsair XMS2-6400 TWIN2x2048-6400C4 (2GB in total)
Gigabyte 8600GTS (GV-NX86S256H)
Antec Neopower 480W
Western Ditital Raptor 74GB (WD740ADFD)
Does anyone have a clue on what the trouble can be?
I might add that you can see the text on the screen update. It's not like it's just there, you can see it build up an line here, a few characters there, and then maybe a few lines etc etc.
