At start up the computer checks the memory (as mentioned above) and checks the network connection and loads the drivers (before showing anything on the screen).

If you are not on a network disable all the network components and this should resolve the matter.

If the "gap" you describe is at startup, the increased memory may be causing it.  The computer checks memory when it boots; the more memory you have, the longer it takes to check it.
