Yes its called Windows7 it has a diagnostic that will tell you if it thinks it is running too slow or starting too slow or if you have an issue with a driver. Just open Action center and then click on view performance information then click on Advanced Tools from there you can check the performance of your entire system. Are you timing the start up after your password to eliminate the different motherboards or right after you push the power button? There will always be differences between machines ,start up programs can make a big difference, motherboard configurations, operating systems, hardware etc.
With my W7/64bit/i7-920-2.67GHz/OCZssd-It takes 10sec. to open Firefox after my password. While my W7/32bit/Pentium4-3GHz/WD spinner-Takes 2.15 mins.
to open Firefox after my password, mostly because of my start-up programs.
