k what you want to do is first go to run and type in msconfig, turn of stuff at startup you dont want. then you go into run and type in services.msc and disable all services that you are not using, if ur not sure what it is look at the description. then when you do that go here......

and see what else you can do to make it boot faster.

i don't think it has to do with startup items seeing as that description sounds like its stalling at POST. if that is the case i would say it is a hardware detection issue, so via a process of elimination you are going to have to find out what is causing it to stall
