Asus M2N4 motherboard displays the first few lines with the Phoenix AwardBIOS info, motherboard name and BIOS rev number and processor.
It *used to * go right on and display memory amount (or tick upwards if I had quick boot disabled), then PCI etc. information and boot up.
It still kind of does that, except now it takes about five minutes between the first line and the rest of POST.
Other symptoms on this machine was a failing (?) HDD. I put a PSU tester on and got low 12v2s, but I don’t think the Corsair HX 750 has them. Didn’t look too deeply, as Corsair’s pages say their PSUs don’t play nicely with testers and I need to dig out my multimeter. Anyway, that’s kind of background.
Any set of reasons why the board woudl hang for a while during POST?
