Just today my wifes computer started acting "strange" and now it wont boot. Thats the way she described it.

So here is what I found. When the PC is turned on, I get the normal sounds, everything spins up, I get 1 beep. Now, it has an MSI K9VGM-V MB istalled, and when the screen comes on, all I get is th MSI logo with the normal "Press TAB to enter POST, DEL to enter BIOS Setup". Ya ya, normal....but it just hangs there......for a REALLY long time. I hit DEL to enter setup to check some hardware, took almost 15 minutes to get there. As I am typing this I am letting it sit to see how long it takes to start windows....whats the deal? I swapped RAM, no difference, PSU, nothing, there is no Vid Card, any other ideas? Cant imagine the HDD is causing this, but not really sure how to test that without a re-install.

ok, so it loaded, took about 15 minutes again to get into windows. I'm confused.....everthing runs fine, not sluggish. Just boots so slow. Only idea is the MB is failing somehow.

Have you checked the capacitors for any leaking/bulging capacitors? and is the CPU heatsink Still firmly installed? and Have you tried resetting the CMOS? There should be a jumper to reset it, refer to your manual to find out where it is. Or, you can simply remove the CMOS battery (Circular watch battery) for 30 seconds to a minute, and then reinstall.
