I have already a time out from 100 in this file, I 'll make it 500 and probably the system is waiting for me.
(I tried out some settings 200 will do. But I don't know why and I don't like that.)
This is an ASSUS Laptop 3500D .
It is starting with some kind of Assus logo and while this is on the screen I have to touch the space bar. Only then the systems counts its seconds in a normal way. If I don't press space it will wait about 3 to 5 seconds with timeout 100.
Thanks for the explanation about the versions.
