    One-year old Gateway P4 computer with a brand new installation of
    Windows XP Home from the Gateway restoration CD. When the computer
    boots, it hangs on the black screen with the horizontal bar graph that
    occurs prior to the "Microsoft Windows XP Home" start page for about two
    minutes. The computer worked fine before the reinstallation, so it is
    unlikely that it is a hardware problem. Where to look? I doesn't appear
    to be a boot virus, but I'll check again.

    you could try the BootVis tool (google for it) and see if you can figure out
    what driver is causing the delay.
