win xp pro hanging for 2 mins on startup

  INVERNESSGUY 15:27 04 Jan 05

hi, when i start my conputer, it reaches the windows screen, and stays dark for approx 2 mins, then goes bright, and starts normally...

This problem has been there since i installed a pci card, which has usb2, firewire, and seriel and parallel ata on it.

I have tried removing and re installing the card, and the correct drivers are installed for it.

Maybe that isnt the problem... any ideas?
