Hi All, having an issue new to me.
I have an eMachine with an AMD Atholon II motherboard.
When I start or restart the machine it takes forever to get thru the bios. If I select to go into setup it again takes forever and once in, it is a arrow down, go get a pizza, arrow down, Eat the pizza, enter to select, go take a shower...etc. You get the idea.
Now once the machine fully loads (about 30 mins), Win7 flies, no issues. Works great.
I have tried removing the battery for 15 mins and restarting, The machine is clean, all 6 gigs test good. I have reset to factory defaults and eMachines show no bios updates or firmware updates.
Any help? If you need more info please let me know. TY!!
