Dell inspirion 1721
I am having a terrible issue with this laptop. When you do a cold boot, it will take about 3 mins to load up to the desktop. if you shut it down and restart it.. it seems to load up a little faster. DELL is no help... no surprise!!! The CPU usage stays below 50% on idle..
I have changed out the hard drive,
updated the bios,
installed a new battery,
changed out the Ram,
Changed the page filling system,
took the keyboard out and back in,
I am running windows vista with the laptop, i have formatted and reloaded vista, xp, windows 7, linux.. and i get the same results!!!
Any help would be more that grateful!! I have just about given up on this problem, but i know someone has to have an idea
I will be checking this forum about every hour for updates!!
