[motherboard] Don't know if this is mobo, hdd or possibly softwa
When booting my pc it will go through the normal boot process and then it stops. It stops for several minutes. All I can hear is fan and nothing else. The screen sits completely blank. Then from out of nowhere the hard drive wakes up, starts chattering and opens up the window. This is completely new behavior and has me fearing that I may have an issue with the disk controller on my mobo. Anybody out there familiar with this sort of behavior?
My mobo is a p5q3 wifi deluxe

Do the event logs in windows say anything? It sounds like something is waiting for a response - either a service to start, or something like that - and is causing the system to stall. If there is a controller or hard drive error, it should show in the event logs. How about safe mode? Does it stall like that going into safe mode as well?
