I don't know what BIOS you are using and I can't post any pictures of mine.

My BIOS can be set to display text information during boot.
It lists devices as it detects them.
I can see it detect each of my HDDs and then each of my optical drives.

If you can get into your BIOS, you should be able to:
  • Find a list of devices (possibly in the Boot Order section)
  • See some temperature information
  • See some voltage information


I don't like updating the BIOS, as I am paranoid that I might make my PC unusable.

If it is normal to boot after one minute, then it is ok , sir.
I never blame win 7. I also read that timeout at boot menu is set to 30 seconds and this may be the reason for the cursor. Thank you, for your racer quick pertinent answers. I will check those things also.
You did check you ram already.... amost impossible that's the cause. The 30 seconds timeout you're talking about is the bootmenu timeout... so the time the bootmenu stays on screen in case of multiboot.... so irrelevant. Overheating problem??? You also tried it when everything is still cold I assume

I think it's just a harddrive spin up problem.
