After the bios screen goes (very fast) I just get this flashing _ and a blank screen for at least 10-15 minutes and it just sits there. After this windows 7 loads normally (pretty quick) and everything after this is normal. All applications, games work great.

This is the only harddrive in my computer its a Digital Western Green, mobo is Asus REV 3.1 p67

When I first built the computer I didn't have this problem, it only happened after I tried putting in an old sound card (creative audigy 2) Nothing happened with that card in, the computer didn't even make it to bios. After I took it out it started taking forever to detect a hard drive. Im just wondering how I can fix this.

I don't see how a sound card would effect boot speed, but you can always try doing a system restore to a point before you installed the sound card.
