Windows 7: 10 second delay before startup animation?

10 second delay before startup animation?

Ok guys well I posted a while back about random freezing issues and i had to rma my motherboard in order to get it fixed. When it came back I installed everything and whenever I start it up there is a 10 second delay before the startup animation starts. then it takes its normal course. When my bootup starts now it seems as if it has a much longer bootup than before I rmaed it and it is quite annoying seeing as I have to shut it down because it will not resume from hibernate or sleep. If anybody could help me resolve the 10 second boot delay issue and the resume from sleep issue it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I know my boot times have increased since I have my USB items plugged in. Remove all USB items and reboot to see if something connected to the machine is causing it to pause and wait for a response.

I gave it a try but no dice. Would a related issue be that my drives are not in ahci mode?
