I have an Asus K8V Deluxe motherboard for my amd64 3000. When i start my pc it spends AGES on the Asus logo. What is going on and how do i cut the time?

pc booster, If you wanna get around all the other ways to do it, this program does a pretty good job at it.

correct me if im rong, but maybe if the mobo keeps trying to redetect your hardwear each time, it may cause it to start slow. make shur your jumper settings on your drives are set correct(maybe if there on CableSelect u may wont to try them on MA or SA), and there on the right IDE terminals. CMOS battery may be a problem? i wouldnt have a clue how to check it though, other then replacing it.
