    mobo bios flash screen


    I've acquired new to me but old mobo, Gigabyte GA-MA790X-DS4, now every time I start up PC or have to reboot I have this BIOS flash screen that does what it does then goes on to load up windows. With my old Asus mobo I didn't have this bios flash screen. Is there a way to disable this? It's just a personal annoyance.

    I've searched and found that there is a setting in the BIOS to do just that but it's on the newer boards. I've scoured my BIOS settings and just can't seem to find it, if it exists at all for my mobo.

    Hello Jimbo,

    I looked at your mobo's manual below starting at page 36 chapter 2-1, and I don't see an option to turn the "splash screen' or "Quick Boot" on or off either.

    Thanks Brink, I looked, sifted and read and reread the manual and I didn't see it either. Like I said it's just a personal annoyance.

    On a side note; with this new to me mobo/CPU I've been able to utilize RAM more efficiently by changing the RAM settings and timings to 1066, which the RAM is rated for. With my Asus mobo setting it to 1066 caused BSOD. What a difference it makes.

    Oh, yeah. Cranking the RAM up to full speed can make a nice difference in performance.
