I have a computer running on windows xp. Core Duo E7200 with 2gigs of ram. I've been using it for over a month now and it boots up nice and quickly for me.

However I just noticed today that when I turn on the AVR and I press the computer's power button, it takes around 15 seconds before it actually boots up. Before, when I pressed the power button the computer boots up immediately and you can see the boot screen. But now it's like there's around a 15 second lag from the time you press the power button to the actual boot. I'm hoping someone can help me out here.

Thanks guys.:)

By boot up screen, do you mean the windows xp proffessional screen or the black screen with many white letters (just like the ms-dos in win95,98)?

Try resetting CMOS and see if it still lags. I have started having similar lag after I overclocked.
