Exclamation BIOS hangs for 2 minutes

I have an Intel DX48BT2 board. About a week ago the BIOS just started to hang on the boot process. At first I thought it froze, but it hangs every time I turn it on for about 2 minutes and then it boots into Windows. Before it would only take about 5 seconds.

I updated to the latest BIOS today to see if the problem was fixed but no luck.

Intel Core i7-860
XFX HD-5870
G-Skill 4GB DDR3
WD Caviar Black 1TB
Silencer 750W
Antec Twelve Hundred
Windows 7 Ultimate
