I just put together a new system. It boots but it is incredibly slow (e.g. the green Asus screen stays on for almost two minutes; it then takes several more minutes to get to the Windows start-up screen) I was eventually able to install Windows XP and then flash the Bios to update it to revision 1803 but this has not helped. (Now when it boots I get a long beep and a message to press F2 to restore Bios.) I've installed drivers from the Asus support disk; however, since the problem exists even before Winodws loads, I am assuming it is something else. The Bios seems to recognize the procssor speed and memory amount; I haven't tried to adjust anything in the Bios. Any ideas?

I have the same problem, although not to the same degree. I disabled the splash so I can see that the bootup pauses for about a minute after "USB input devices" are recognized.

The long continuous beep usually indicates an issue with the mem although it's not listed below.

One short beep;
VGA detected
Quick boot set to disabled
No keyboard detected

One continuous beep followed by two short beeps then a pause (repeated):
No memory detected

One continuous beep followed by three short beeps:
No VGA detected

One continuous beep followed by four short beeps:
Hardware component failure

If you still don't see your beep pattern use the link below (AMI Bios):
