Excuse me if this isn't the appropriate section! I posted here because I think the issue I'm having may be hardware related.
Built a computer at the beginning of the year (My first build) and all went extremely well and I love my computer!
Gigabyte p67 motherboard
Intel i7 2600k
Crucial 8 gb (2 x 4) RAM
GeForce Video Card
SSD + HDD
When I boot my PC it loads to the screen shown in the first picture (below) and then stays there. This doesn't happen every time and the amount of time differs each time. Sometimes it will stay there for 10 minutes if I let it and sometimes it only takes 30 seconds.
When it gets to that screen and appears "stuck" I can push the restart button on my case and it will reboot and go past that screen so fast that I can't even read it.
I'm just wondering if anyone on here has heard of this issue and knows of a fix or what the problem might actually be.
The second picture (below) is what shows up after it gets "unstuck" which is what makes me think it is a hardware issue. Because the memory is what seems to be holding up the boot process.
Edit: Oh, and for the record, it works 100% fine after it is booted. It doesn't run slow, it has never frozen, and it has never crashed at all.
