Also ive noticed that this problem is described in the last version of my bios, And mine is 2 versions behind. Also i cant open it so i have to use flash memory and do it on boot or however they do it.

Fixed it it was the bios, so after updating the bios it gave me error that some of the configuration is not right, so i went into the settings and set all my CPU , Ram , voltages to AUTO, and that fixed everything. My PC starts up from first try quick, and yeah everything seems fine. Thank you so much for the quick response!! I really appreciate it.

Another thing that i find weird is my ethernet cable network. After my PC starts which is about 5 seconds it takes about 15-20 seconds for my ethernet network to start, my wifi is working on startup but my ethernet takes a little longer.
