Please answer the question from the post above. You are seeming to get a double boot, which is not uncommon from an Asus motherboard. Also, your 500Gb hard drive seems to be connected to a Marvell port. Also, I could not make the message out in the you tube , but on the Bios screen at the bottom it says hdd something detected followed by and exclamation point (!). What does that say? Everything in the start up is your bios until you get to the 'Loading Windows' screen. After that, it is your SSD, which is also booting slow. The message on the American Megatrends screen may give some info as to what the problem is.

Could you explain (in detail) what you mean when you say you "Reset Your Computer"?

@Essenbe

The cable was connected from the SSD to exactly the port where the black arrow was pointing

--

Also, by reseting the computer I mean that the guy that sold me his pc, removed all programs so it was all new when I got it =)

I had no problems in the start, then this happend. Also he didn't have any problems with the PC at all.

EDIT:

Essenbe,

With the BIOS screen you mean the American Megatrends menu that popped up?

It said "No Keyboard detected!"

AT the bottom

It also said


SATA Port1: Corsair Force 3 SSD
SATA Port5: ASUS (unreadable)

What is connected to sata port 5? If it is a DVD or another hard drive, disconnect it and try it again.

Hey not sure man.

That menu pops up sometimes, then I have to take the power off the computer, then restart it, to get rid of it.

I tried to restart it now, but it didn't pop up, it pops up random times.

I don't know where the SATA5 is, I looked at the picture you posted, I could only see 4 SATA ports there, could you tell me what one is the SATA5 one?

Cheers man.

I'm not sure. Go to the Asus web site and download your manual, if you don't have it. It will tell you what the port numbers are and where they're located.

Below is your motherboard with the SATA ports marked.
  • The "top" red ports are the Marvel Controller ports. There are 2 ports here, on on top of the other from this bird's-eye perspective.
  • The red ports "below" those are the SATA3 (6GB) ports, two of them.
  • The grey ports below those red ports are the SATA2 (3GB) ports, two sets of two.

The following is a blow up of those ports. You can see where ports 5 & 6 are.

The top one is #5, the bottom one (closest to the motherboard) is #6.


Whatever you have plugged into #5 is the suspect. Unplug it and check to see if anything improves.


Please answer honestly: are you comfortable working inside this computer? You seem reluctant.

@TVeblem

Not comfortable at all, but the guy that built the PC will look inside it.

Anyways, thank you guys for trying to help me, sorry for being such a newbie.
