Hi all

I have problem with my PC. It boots so slow... It goes like this: Press power button, bios information appear, then 30 seconds black screen, then windows loading screen, then again black screen for 30 seconds and finally welcome screen appear. I don't know who could make this but it was never like this, mostly black screens were for few seconds and now for 30 or more.. I tried search at google and use some tips but no one helped me.

PS: My computer has fresh Windows XP installation with all data deleted.

Thanks in advance for any helpful post.

From the time you press the power button until the Desktop finishes loading, how long does it take?

There is absolutely nothing wrong with a two minute boot time.

Were you having this problem before you reinstalled XP?

No it's not. There are many factors which can affect boot up time. Just because yours is fast doesn't mean everyone will have fast boot up. Tweaks can be made to decrease boot time but it may not be lightning fast.

It was never like this, so I find it odd.

Yes, I have this problem pretty long time.

It was never like this, but you've had the problem for a long time. Okay..............

Anyway, my suggestion is not to worry about it - it's fine.

My computer is old, 10 years it were used almost daily. Maybe my PC is coming to the end, that would cause a problem.
