Windows XP Professional New installation

I have built a new AMD 3300+ computer and installed Windows XP Professional
OEM. When I first start the computer up it takes at least 2 mins to boot up.
My other computer only takes about 20 sec. The computer sets on the Windows
XP start up icon for about the whole 2 mins. Do I need to change something in
the bios? I have everything set at optimal settings in the bios. Can anyone
help me with this problem?
Thanks

Have you installed all the drivers for your hardware? Have you done a clean
up/chkdsk/defrag?

Thank you Alias, I put the motherboard CD back in and it installed another
Video driver and that took care of the problem
