Sudden Slow Boot Problem

  darkster 18:44 24 Jan 07

Hi all,
I have just moved my PC to another room and, bizarrely, now the boot sequence takes about 4-5 mins before it checks the hardware and prompts me for the password. I have checked the bios, loaded failsafe defaults etc to no avail. When it eventually boots into Windows XP everything is fine. Any ideas?

I've removed and re-seated the memory DIMMs and it still does it.
