Symptoms

I press the power button the laptop and have to wait about 3 ~ 6 min for the post bios appears. After waiting all this time. I use the laptop normally without apparent problems.

 

PS: Bios 3.23

Type: 2768-D92

 


Diagnosis

Value Line Systems running on updated BIOS

Solution

 

 

Go into BIOS, keep the setting under "Config" - "SATA"  in mind, press F9 - load defaults, F10 - yes and turn off computer.

Turn computer on, and re-set under Config - SATA the last setting.

 

If the POST still is too long, remove the BIOS battery for a few minutes (take care to know the BIOS passwords if there are set any).
