Windows 7: Slow/Weird boot problem

Since the BIOS updates are fixes related to performance then yes I would update to the latest. But this is the most risky thing that can be done if you don't follow the steps precisely. There can be no loss of power during the flashing of the BIOS chip or it may be unrecoverable without shipping back the unit.

Chapter 2 of the Manual deals with the BIOS and how to Update it, so study it closely and ask back for more help if you have any questions: e9472_z97-ar_ug_v2_for_web_only.pdf

This is one of those operations where if the mobo is still within a year of purchase I would use phone tech support to walk me through it so that it's ready for RMA if something goes wrong and it isn't all on you.

I have a very unusual problem: Sometimes, when booting, the monitor only shows a blinking cursor in the top-left corner. No POST, nothing else. The weird thing is that the system appears to be booting quite normally, as sometimes, if I wait long enough (1-2 minutes tops) I can hear the startup...
