I recently upgraded the BIOS on my Asus M4N82 Deluxe MB and it seems the Asus splash screen displays an inordinately long time now. It eventually goes on to the American Megatrends BIOS load screen and all boots well but I was wondering if there were a way in the BIOS to shorten this splash screen display time? On the positive side it does give me plenty of time to hit Del and enter the setup but it's a bit overkill.

After the Bios upgrade. Did you do a reset of the CMOS and then redo any customizations such AHCI on or off?

Sometimes that can help.

Was thee any reason to upgrade the bios? My philosophy is let sleeping dogs lie and of course it it ain't broke don't fix.

I cannot recall ever upgrading a Bios on my computer systems. Going back to the 8088 CPU days.

I did upgrade a motherboard for someone I knew. That was only so that the CPU they bought off of Ebay could work with the Motherboard with a really old bios also off of Ebay.

Good Luck

Yes I made some updates to my box recently that benefitted from a BIOS upgrade. Apart from that I typically adhere to your "let sleeping dogs lie" philosophy regarding BIOS upgrades. In 10+ years of tinkering with computers this is only the second or third time I've done a BIOS flash.

I did not reset the CMOS however after the flash. I was wondering if there might be something as simple as an on screen delay parameter since the BIOS affords you the opportunity to customise the graphic it displays on the splash screen. If there is such a thing I've yet to see it. It could be there mind you and I'm just overlooking it. Wouldn't be the first time... :wink:
