    What are your startup items? What peripheral do you have connected?

    startup: logitech wireless mouse drivers, windows sticky notes, bitdefender total security 2016.
    everything else is on bitdefender's delayed startup.

    I have a boot menu to go through, where I have to choose between windows and macrium reflect recovery environment.

    peripherals: HP printer, logitech wireless mouse, microsoft wireless keyboard.

    I tried booting after a regular shut down (not restart) and I got 11 seconds BIOS time.
    I spoke this morning to ASUS about a BIOS problem -- I can't get into the BIOS menu, even after flashing to the current firmware version -- and they told me I probably have a hardware problem with the BIOS chip.
    I was wondering whether that impacted my startup time. Apparently, it does.

    I disabled the boot menu, and it went down to 9 secs after a restart. Maybe that's not so bad, considering that I have to type in my user account pin.

    The boot time is before Windows loads, it stops when you see the circling dots.

    okay, so it does sound like I have a bios problem.
    the mobo, and in fact the whole store-built pc, is still under warranty.

    I have it set for five seconds, but I click through to windows 10 right away, I don't wait around until it boots itself up.
    I don't know if this makes a difference.
    I set the Timeout at 30 (sec) when I had dual boot setup. After removing the dual boot, I have not changed the Timeout setting.
    I don't find my boot time slow. But then, it depends on how one perceives what is "fast" and what is "slow".

    thanks, so it sounds like I am well within the norm.

    yep it looks ok different bios for different machines start up times etc.
    Just a curious question..................other than slower startup time, what would be the potential danger if the startup time is beyond the alleged " norm ", say by a couple of seconds ?

    well in my case, I guess it is a matter of damage control. I probably have a defective bios chip in my mobo, but on the other hand, the pc works for most practical purposes. So I am wondering whether it is worth the bother to take it back to the store and wait X-number of business days and then go pick it up again -- which means working on a spare laptop all the while. But if the chip is showing signs of impending failure, I might as well deal with the problem already.
