Windows 7: Startup sequence strange

Windows 7 64bit
Startup sequence strange


I put this here because I wasnt sure where to put it.

Ive been doing some work on my friends computer. There is a couple of things I thought odd with it. He has a Gigabyte Ultra Durable 3 Motherboard. (he has windows 7 ultimate x86)

Firstly when you start it up it goes to the Ultra Durable 3 screen-(normal) and then the display flashes off and then the Durable 3 screen comes back and then it goes to the DMI pool screen and then it says starting windows. Then the monitor turns off and then say 15 seconds later the monitor comes back on and it goes straight to the desktop, missing the welcome screen altogether. All in all it gets there though.

My computer on the other hand (I have Windows 7 Home premium x64) also dur 3 Mboard does it all in one smooth motion.

Just wondering about that.

2nd problem. Whilst messing around with it I went into the bios and noticed the boot sequence was all out of order. So I changed it to something like USB, CD ROM, and finally HDD. Went to save it with F10 and it wouldnt save. What could be going on there?

Sorry I know all this probably sounds trivial but I am annoyed by it.
