PC Building

Long time launching pc.

Hey, I have an important question about new generations. Do your PCs also take a long time to boot before your PC starts up? up to a minute max? This is normal? (my pc turns on in an average of 30 seconds, sometimes it happens faster and sometimes it takes a long time, my bios and everything are updated). Is it a common problem with new gen and high power ram or should be i refund it? 

And one more question, is it normal that when you turn on the PC, the CPU light is on and then blinks for ten minutes while booting, and then disappears normally and the PC starts up quickly?

I have r7 7700

On the AM5 platform, it does take much longer to boot the computer.  In fact, the first boot can take several minutes, making the builder worry that something is wrong.  My 7900X build is taking a good 30 seconds to boot.  I'm used to it now and it works fine.  My older AM4 builds take an order of magnitude less time to boot.

You can try and enable memory context restore, it should boot really fast but it may affect stability. Do some stress testing to see if you can run it crash free.

I have it disabled because MCR will BSOD me long before getting into Windows. But 21 seconds is all I have to wait. So I'm good.

This question confuses me.  It's normal that the motherboard status lights will sequence through a memory check, a CPU check and a GPU check, and then they should go out as it boots past the BIOS and loads Windows.  I have not seen these lights blink for 10 minutes either during an extended boot cycle or after the BIOS has done it's job and Windows has taken control.

Same problem, but turning on memory context restore fixed it. Now back to fast start ups
