Something in the BIOS is trying to do something and it's not working
So, the first step (IMO) would be to reset the BIOS to default values.
If it's still slow, try disconnecting everything that you can and see if it boots OK.
- If it does, then it's likely that it's having trouble communicating with one of those components
- If it doesn't, then it's likely that it's having internal issues (or issues with the few things that are left).
I'd check the hard drive/cd drive cabling/jumpers first.
