Weird problem on start up

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

I don't know where this would belong, but I really could use help. My build is Intel so I figured it would be most suited for here.

It's hard to explain and don't know the cause, but here is a video that basically explains what is happening before start up.


Thanks for any help.

Well I forgot to mention, this has happened since I built my computer. One of my HDDs recently died, so that was replaced. Still have the problem. Motherboard got switched out with the sandy bridge recall. Still have the problem.

Any other ideas? I ordered a pair of Corsair Vengeance to see if it might fix the problem. If not, well then I have more RAM

Bump

After updating bios fully, it now has a 98 before the B4 shows up.

At what point in Startup does this occur?
Right after PWR ON while it is trying to POST?
Does it eventually clear up at the WIN 7 welcome screen?
Can you make it to the desktop if you waited it out?
Why did you replace the HDD?
Did you reformat and fresh install after replacing HDD?
At what point did this first appear?
When you powered on for the first time?
Prior to initial WIN install?
Did Win 7 install normally withtout the strange display on the video?
Do you have the latest Win7 64 chipset and MB drivers installed?
Have you tried using 1 RAM stick? (Verify the correct slot in manual.)
Have you tried CMOS reset? Have you tried GPU atstock speeds?
Lastly, think back. Have you seen anything that would point to a power issue?

Apologize if questions are obvious to you. I just want to be clear about things before voluteering any opinions.

Anything to help.

- This starts as soon as I hit the power button on my computer. I hear POST such as 1 long beep 1 short, and 2 short beeps.
- Eventually it goes away, goes to MSI motherboard boot image, and starts windows.
- I always make it to the desktop. This is just a 1-2 minute delay every time I turn my computer on or restart.
- My other HDD randomly deleted itself pretty much. I would say I got a virus, but I didn't go to any weird website or download anything.
- Bought new HDD to install Windows on, then reformatted my old HDD.
- This has been happening since they day I built my computer.
- Prior to windows installation, yes.
- Everything installs normally, after a minute or two of waiting and it actually boots up.
- All drivers are up to date.
- Tried 1 RAM stick, tried 4. Tried CMOS many times. GPU at normal speeds didn't help either.
- Don't think it would be a power issue because the computer runs fine afterwards.

I feel like I might have left something unplugged in the computer or something. Googling this, no one else has ever had this problem.

Thanks for any help you can offer.

try disabling the marvel sata controller in the bios. I've only heard bad things about it, I have it disabled myself.

Beeps seem to be related to any USB devices detected. Maybe the BIOS doesn't like something attached to a USB port. Keyboard. Mouse. Whatever. Don't know if this is causing the strange initial display, but maybe you can experiment with what you have connected on USB ports. I would also disable the splash screen and see if the boot process looks normal from that point.

How would I disable the controller?

I will try to boot up with no USB plugged in. That kinda seems like it would make sense.
