I love my mobo, but I'm getting sick of looking at the Gigabyte splash screen when booting. I had to uninstall my ATI drivers, and now my PC takes 20 minutes to boot Nothing else has changed. Do you think my mobo is going, or could something else be at fault? All my parts were brand new as of Nov 2007. Thanks

When I finally got into windows I checked CPU-Z and it had my clock settings back to default. I only had a mild overclock done at 10 x 250.

Does the BIOS reset / clears CMOS if you turn off / unplug the PSU ?
Nevermind, I turned my computer on this morning and the settings were saved. I guess turning off the PSU resets the CMOS too.

Unless you're just leading into the 20 minute boot problem, you do know that screen is optional right? Would probably be a good shot at fixing it if you disabled it to see what the computer's doing at the time of the boot. Full Screen Logo I believe.

A lot of people (myself included, next time around) uninstall drivers and then safe-boot and use another program (DriverCleaner ? I forget the name) to make sure the drivers are wiped before updating. You could always try that, but it sounds like you're having issues elsewhere. For a quick elimination, make sure you don't have any storage devices connected via USB when you're booting (thumb drives, IPOD's, etc.) sometimes that causes a problem depending on your BIOS configuration.

Unplugging the PSU will not affect CMOS settings; that's why there is a CMOS Battery on your motherboard. However, that being said, you may need to look into replacing the CMOS battery. Also, check the two pins on the board for CMOS Reset. Make sure there's no jumper and they aren't touching.

I've never run into the problem that you (and several others) have described. The only thing I've run into is when the motherboard recovers itself from a failing overclock and disables some of the settings to get it to reboot again.

I wasn't terribly interested in 2 gigs for $77 (I'm running 4gigs) but $34 for 2 gigs after rebate sure makes them more tempting

Processor looks good, maybe want to consider more CACHE though.

Memory looks good, but I don't know much about it. Reading the reviews on Newegg, some people have trouble overclocking it and some people can't boot their board with it because the board defaults to 1.8v and it requires 2.1v. I'd suggest checking the corsair memory linked above for $34 for 2 gigs, better latencies and better track record.

First, thank you for the reply. Second, I do keep a USB thumb drive (for my college stuff) in the front USB port at all times (and my WD MyBook 250GB USB external drive). I will start taking the thumb drive out when I'm going to reboot. I can see how that would be an issue - I didn't even think of that

Third, I know I can take the screen off and I probably should. I was going to wait until I started overclocking, but I think I'll be doing it sooner. Thanks + rep
