It takes my PC 2 minutes and 40 seconds to start up. How can I speed it up?
I have 3GB of memory.

If you don't mind me asking, why is this a problem?

Do you think 2.6 minutes is OK on start up?

Absolutely. I have a whole bunch of systems and I'd guess that's about average for mine (I say "I'd guess" because I don't sit and watch them boot - don't understand why anyone would).

But what if it was a minute slower than someone else's system? Or a minute faster? Startup time is irrelevant. How it performs after it boots is all that's important.
