    Try removing any extra cards, just have hte bare minimum installed, one stick of ram or two if needed for dual channel, one optical drive etc

    Also go into your BIOS and rest you ESCD i belive its called

    Make sure your motherboard isn't overclocked.

    It takes a little while to shift off 39 minutes for me... have you tried leaving it 5 minutes?
