BOOT_DEVICE_LED Turns on while turning PC on, and performance problems.

  ShadZy 23:37 22 Nov 2014

Like i said in the title my PC, normally when turned on he would light the CPU LED, RAM LED, GPU LED, and just flash the BOOTDEVICELED then the motherboard speaker does the "bip" and he would just go into Windows normally. Now what he does is, he does the exact same with the exception that he stays with the BOOTDEVICELED on until the point when he recognizes the HDD (that meaning when it appears on the screen the Storage devices i have plugged onto the computer, still with the black background and white letters), then the LED turns off and my pc starts, but slowly, not really slow, but i feel a big performance loss, i want to know if i need to swap something or not, i feel the performance loss in games for example, but my FPS stay right, my PING is always normal, i just lag when something overloads my screen, or something else, for an example, a granade exploding. And when te game ends, he is really slow getting back to windows, or even if i watch a movie, when i do something after closing the Player, he feels really slow. Thanks for reading, would appreciate your help.

Try booting with all other drives removed from the USB ports

if still the same then try running memtest to check the RAM
