start up problem

My computer has suddenly decided to freeze on startup at the page advertising my card ie. ASUS P5N-D where you would select DEL for setup.

Re-booting doesn't help except, when its at the ASUS page, I turn the mains power off.

Re-starting then works normally.

I guess its a BIOS problem but everything else is ok

Any ideas?

I'd try removing everything that's connected to your usb ports, except keyboard and mouse, and see if the PC boots normally. If you no longer get this problem then it might be that the PSU is beginning to fail.
