thanks but i dont have an xp disc, any other ideas. i would like to look at boot defrag but cant find it in registry ... i get a new pc soon and want to fix this one, not reintall xp.
The following, which is copied from first entry, has been a problem since long before the slow boot up and may well be loose cables: "for a long time the pc sometimes has refused to boot, showing various errors, this has always been fixed by re seating the hd cables, power to hd and memory strips"a
ny help appreciated
