Slow boot, sticking at BIOS

Last Modified: 2012-08-14
After Windows 7 automatically did some updates my computer now sticks on the initial ASUS screen for about 10-20 minutes before it very slowly boots up. It seems to get stuck almost pre-bios as I cannot get into the bios settings.

Also have XP installed but it gets stuck before I get the choice of which OS to boot.

Any ides what might be causing this and how to fix it?
