Hi guys,


I built my System one year ago - running Win 10 Prof:


Asus Z170 Pro Gaming Intel Z170 So.1151 Dual
Intel Core i5 6600K 4x 3.50GHz So.1151 WOF
500GB Samsung 850 Evo 2.5" (6.4cm) SATA 6Gb/s
6144MB MSI GeForce GTX 1060 Gaming X
LG Electronics GH24NSD1 DVD-Writer SATA
600 W be quiet! Straight Power 10-CM Module
16GB (2x 8192MB) HyperX FURY Rev.2


It worked fine until know. It normally boots very quick with around 4-5 seconds from Power on to Windows Log IN screen. I now encountered two Boot Ups, both staying on the ASUS-Symbol-POST Screen for several minutes (last time: 8 minutes) until it continues booting up and loading windows in 3 seconds.

I now fear that one of my components or the board itself may start to decay...

What could be the cause?

I didn't attached any new devices...

I would appreciate some advice so that I am prepared if it happens more often or the system stops entirely. Maybe someone had the same problem and was able to solve it.


There was around a week between the two "problem boot-ups". I don't disconnect my PC from power but it happened both times when the PC was turned off around 10-12 hours, not more then usually.


Many thanks

Please download MiniToolBox  , save it to your desktop and run it.
Checkmark the following checkboxes:
  List last 10 Event Viewer log
  List Installed Programs
  List Users, Partitions and Memory size.
Click Go and paste the content into your next post.
Also...please Publish a Snapshot using Speccy taking care to post the link of the snapshot in your next post.

   Go to Piriform's website, and download the free version on the left.  Click Download from Piriform.com (the FileHippo link requires an extra click). Or if you want to use a portable version of Speccy (which doesn't require installation), click the builds page link and download the portable version. You will now be asked where you want to save the file. The best place to put it is the Desktop, as it will be easy to find later.

    After the file finishes downloading, you are ready to run Speccy. If you downloaded the installer, simply double-click on it and follow the prompts until installation is complete. If you downloaded the portable version, you will need to unzip it before use. Right-click the ZIP file and click Extract all. Click Next. Open up the extracted folder and double-click on Speccy.
     Once inside Speccy, it will look similar to this (with your computer's specifications, of course):

     Now, at the top, click File > Publish Snapshot.

     Click Yes > then Copy to Clipboard

Now, once you are back in the forum topic you are posting in, click the ADD REPLY or REPLY TO THIS TOPIC button. Right-click in the empty space of the Reply box and click Paste. Then, click Add Reply below the Reply box.
