    Default X38-DQ6: Where is Quick Boot?

    Every Asus motherboard I ever owned has a BIOS option to skip the memory check on startup. But I do not find such an option in this motherboard's BIOS up through rev. F7.

    I am running a QX-9650 with 4GB (2 sticks) onboard, and the mem check time is lengthy.

    Does this option exist? I have not tried F8 yet, and I'll wait till F9 is production before trying it.

    Does anyone know about this option? Thanks.

    Well for starters Gigabyte boards do not have this feature

    As for your ram issue. What do you mean by lengthy?


    I believe pushing ESC at boot will skip the check, but there is no setting to always skip it.

    Ctrl + F1 on the MAIN BIOS page will show you any hidden options (Screen will flash once then all hidden settings will be shown) but this would not be one of them

    Thanks. That is a useful feature. What I'm referring to that without that option, it takes about 50 or 60 seconds for the system to verify the 4GB of memory. Esc does not appear to work.

    I'll check the Ctrl+F1 stuff. Overall still a great board, but I do miss that option.

    Yeah, I do not have the option in my BIOS nor do I remember it in any of my past Gigabyte BIOS's so I think it is not there.

    Hmm 50-60 seconds does sound very long. Are you sure you ram is 100% working and stable? What brand is this?

    Would you mind posting your settings you are using? If so I can have a look and see if I see anything that could be off that may cause this
