Theres only 1 hard drive in the pc and i did change it to see if that was the problem but no luck i allso used memtests it passed 3 times, nothing is overclocked ,any ideas this seem to be a problem i cant solve.

I'm sure others have better input but how about disabling SATA ports not used?

How long have you been using it? Could it have built up dust or something on one of the ports causing undesirable effects?

Also did you try another port? How about S.M.A.R.T. options? What if you pull all drives out and try posting, does it still hang?

check if it has quick boot disabled

or a hdd boot delay time
some older ide drives took 5-10 secs to turn on before bios could recognize them
it can be disabled if you are not using any ide drives

I have come back to this post becuase now i am baffled has any 1 had this happen?

1st i though it was the hard drive because posting on slow boot took ages to detect it so i removed the cable put it in another sata port and it worked fine for over a week. When it happend again i decided to see what would happen if i just took the hdd out all together.

It still took ages to finish posting so the hard drive was fine and the ports and cable.

It seems if i take the pciexpress cables out for instants and put them back in it will boot again or if i take a stick of ram out and put it in again it will boot and work for a good week.

So i am completely oblivious to what the problem is every time you take somthing out put back in it boots fine i am totaly puzzled.

Sounds like the boot files might have gotten jacked after the restart.I would just go ahead and reformat.That should fix it.

But it still takes 6 mins posting before i can get into the bios even without the hard drive in its completely disconected so it cant be hard drive or boot files.

For instants i just took power lead out and put it back in now it boots but this will only work for like a few days before it starts laging again on post.
