Question hanging problem with computer

I'm currently running a Windows XP and Fedora Core 4 dual-boot setup. Recently, my Windows XP install has been hanging about 5 minutes after boot and takes an awful long time to boot, even though it's a relatively new setup (few months old). My Fedora Core install also has this problem. Can someone tell me a way to diagnose and isolate the hardware which might be causing this problem?

No. Didn't make any such changes. It just happened out of the blue today. Well, I have had hanging problems in the past, but they were sporadic.

It boots fine. It hangs after the OS has already booted.

Usually, the Linux and Widows boot after a while is supposed to make some issues...but that's what I heard.

I don't think the problems are so serious.

utilize Task Manager and look under the Processes tab and see what could be hogging your processor to the point of it hanging.
