    Default Time before POST increased....

    Hello
    I bought an AsRock 970 Extreme 3 about 3 weeks ago. When i bought it, the screen with AsRock and BIOS/boot options was poping up in 2 seconds after pressing the power button on my computer case. Since 2/3 days ago, this time increased to 6-7 seconds, while the monitor screen remains black. After those seconds, Windows starts normally and there seems to be no problem. Which is the cause of this thing?

    My system: Asrock 970 EXtreme 3, AMD Phenom II x2 545, 2x Kingmax Nano Gaming 2gb @ 1600mhz, MSI gtx 460 Fan OC, Seasonic M12II520.
    What i have tried so far: Reset CMOS, Update BIOS, remove and reinsert everything on MoBo, Disable DVD-RW.

    Help will be appreciated. Thx

    Do you see any message on POST or not? Have you changed anything in BIOS?

    To make it clear. I press the power button. The Screen remains black for 6-7 seconds, then AsRock logo pops up(with press F2 to enter UEFI, press X to turn on turbo UCC, etc). This loads in 2 seconds then Windows starts to load. My question is regarding the first 6-7 seconds of black screen, when cpu cooler, case vents, leds and gpu fan are working.
