GA-81945P-G-RH does a memory test on every boot but i can not ski

\015 Hi guys, I am hoping that i can get someassistance. I am using a a GA-81945P-G-RH mother board, running WindowsXP SP3 and 3 gig of Kingston RAM,When ever i boot my PC, i see the Post screen for half a second thenthe screen goes black and then the post screen is displayed again and aMemory test starts however all i can see on the post screen is ''memory''instead of seeing ''Memory Testing'' and the RAM being counted. It islike it is blacked out. It takes about 2 mins for the test to completeat which point the words ''Memory Testing'' magically appear as does thetotal RAM checked.I can not skip the memory test by pressing esc or space bar and if ipress delete to enter the BIOS, i can not enter until the memory testhas finished.Xp still runs normally once the test has completed and the bootcontinues and the amount of RAM checked is consistant with what isdisplayed in the my computer properties.So far i have tried all 4 versions of my BIOS and am currently back onthe F4 version, i have tried pulling all the RAM out and reinstallingand making sure it is installed correctly (which it is) and i haveremoved the battery from the motherboard for 10 minutes as per themanual to delete the CMOS.I have not been able to find anything in the BIOS about a quick start or skipping the memory test.I have added some pics here http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/ga-81945p-g-rh-does-memory-test-every-boot-but-i-can-not-skip-see-31058/.Pic 1: this is my screen the second time the post screen appears, fortwo minutes all i can see is ''Memory'' i assume this is while the testis taking placePic 2: this pic shows what is displayed once the test is complete, the full words ''memory testing'' and my total RAM tested.Pic 3: this shows all my drives recognised after the test.I really hope someone has any ideas for me as i don't like that it takes 3 and a half mins to boot my PC each time.Thank you\015

I just got this machine and it hangs on the POST (with video) about 1/4 of the way. This is before the F2 or F10 message comes up.

Removed and put back memory, cables, etc. and still will not boot. Any help is appreciated? How do I get the F2/F10 so I can enter setup? Every led is green.
