Bios hanging at press Del to enter setup screen for full minute
I have a DFI ultra infinity, AMD 3200+ mobo and processor. After a XP reinstall, and instaling the driver package for sound/networking and chipset, my bios hangs at the screen that prompts you to press del to enter setup and displays the processor model. I am woundering if it has trouble reading the processor as when it wakes up again and continues on booting ti displays a processor identity number. It hangs for a full minute and a half and pressing del to enter setup dosen't work until the bios continues booting. I flashed the bios with a later version from DFI but to no avail. Anyone ever experence this or have an idea of what may be happening, my machine works fine other than this and testing at Pc Pitstop shows no problems with my processor or the rest of the pc.
Thanks in advance.

The best way to find out what hardware is giving you the problem is to remove all devices from the motherboard except the graphics card. If it boots normal add a card and reboot do this until you find the device.
