I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Did this server recently get any patches applied?
Have you tried booting to "Last Known Good Configuration"

To do this Press F8 at POST until you get the option menu for Safe Boot and all the other Options.

Is the hang around 15 mins? Misconfigured DNS will give a 15 min delay, as the machine tries to locate and connect to AD, then times out.
