    Default GA-81945P-G-RH does a memory test on every boot but i can not skip it or see it

    Hi guys,

    This is my first post here and i am hoping that i can get some assistance. I am using a a GA-81945P-G-RH mother board, running Windows XP SP3 and 3 gig of Kingston RAM,

    When ever i boot my PC, i see the Post screen for half a second then the screen goes black and then the post screen is displayed again and a Memory test starts however all i can see on the post screen is "memory" instead of seeing "Memory Testing" and the RAM being counted. It is like it is blacked out. It takes about 2 mins for the test to complete at which point the words "Memory Testing" magically appear as does the total RAM checked.

    I can not skip the memory test by pressing esc or space bar and if i press delete to enter the BIOS, i can not enter until the memory test has finished.

    Xp still runs normally once the test has completed and the boot continues and the amount of RAM checked is consistant with what is displayed in the my computer properties.

    So far i have tried all 4 versions of my BIOS and am currently back on the F4 version, i have tried pulling all the RAM out and reinstalling and making sure it is installed correctly (which it is) and i have removed the battery from the motherboard for 10 minutes as per the manual to delete the CMOS.

    I have not been able to find anything in the BIOS about a quick start or skipping the memory test.

    I have also added some pics to try and explain what i am experiencing.

    Pic 1: this is my screen the second time the post screen appears, for two minutes all i can see is "Memory" i assume this is while the test is taking place

    Pic 2: this pic shows what is displayed once the test is complete, the full words "memory testing" and my total RAM tested.

    Pic 3: this shows all my drives recognised after the test.

    I really hope someone has any ideas for me as i don't like that it takes 3 and a half mins to boot my PC each time.

    Thank you

    Thanks for replying, however there is nothing in the BIOS about enabling quick post,

    this is the manual

    I searched manual and didn't see anything. :(

    I saw three screen shots in your manual with "Memory Testing" on in them. (Pages 59, 62, and 65.) But no text in reference.

    Have you tried different RAM?

    Solved!!!

    Hi Guys,

    Well just wanted to let everyone know that over the weekend i managed to solve this issue. Turns out my CIT200 Skype phone was the problem. The receiver for the phone is USB and when that is plugged in on boot, it slows it right down. However once i removed it from the USB port, my memory test was completed in 2 seconds and my PC booted like it use too.

    Thanks to everyone who helped with ideas here.

    Regards,
    Kane

    Absolutely, kind of defeats the purpose, the convenience would be to keep the device plugged in at all times but i guess things don't always work out the way you hope

    You can likely leave it plugged in if you go into Integrated Peripherals BIOS page and Disable Legacy USB Storage Detect.

    This will stop the USB Devices from being scanned at bootup only they will function normally in windows, you will need to re-enable this anytime you wish to use Qflash though
