POST and HDD

After installing my new 80gb Western Digital HDD the screen that appears as soon as you switch on the PC seems to take ages (around 15 seconds) to identify my HDDs, CD ROMs etc. This used to only take a couple of seconds.

Any ideas of why this is happening, or better still how to speed it up?

Thank you! :)

one of my signature 'tweaks' is to go into the bios and set the harddrives to manual instead of auto-detect... and change the other auto setting (don't remember what it's called) to LBA for each hd. this shaves a few seconds off the post time. in your case, maybe 15 seconds. :)

I've seen a similar effect when the floppy has been broken/missing/disconnected/wrongefully connected. Does yours work ok?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
