Boot-up memory test

Whenever i boot my P2-233 w/ an Asus AGP board, it test the memory four times in a row before continuing to boot. This didnt used to be the case and i'm not sure exactly when it happened. I have upgraded my BIOS recently. Why does it do this and how can i force it to test memory only once?

Check your biossettings.
There you can define how to test memory on startup.

Go into Bios>Bios Features Setup and Enable the Quick Power On Self Test....  That's all to it...

As you can see...larbel has already given the right answer...I was too late =;-)

Memory will be tested just ONE time if switch is set to ENABLED.

if you want to boot one second faster (wow, hehehe) disable "floppy seek at bootup" in BIOS, too. (only if you don't boot from floppy disk often).
