ii have a dell computer with xp pro. when bootup i get the blue dell splash screen that stays
there for about 10 seconds or longer. is there anyway to bypass the dell logo screen to get
a faster boot??? or even somehow tweak the time it takes???

There is a lot of activity going on in the background behind that splash screen, which is generally there so that people don't worry too much about messages flashing by on the screen.

I believe with Dell there is a settng in the bios for a quick boot, but you are only saving seconds and bypassing error checking functions that may be important one day.
