Win 8 dual boot - the timer isn't working

I get to the new win 8 graphical boot screen, but the timer is not working at all. I've tried to change the timer from the default 30 seconds to 15 seconds & back again with no success. It will sit on that boot menu for as long as I choose to wait before making a selection.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks in advance & have a great day,

Jim
