Specs-
i7-2600
8 gb ram
Radeon hd 6770

My computer runs fine, the programs perform quickly, but the the boot up is slow, and everything loads up sequentially. For example it goes from the Welcome screen to black screen, then about 10 seconds later the toolbar pops up, then the background, then the icons. After their all done loading up, the programs load very quickly and my computer is completely normal.
In short the start up is sequential -
Welcome-black screen- toolbar- background- icons.
In other computers, after the welcome screen it all comes up at once, i just want my computer to do that.
Ive asked help for this issue once but they said to ignore since my computer runs fast, but this type of start is not acceptable for a i7.
Please help me fix.

Maybe you just need to manage startup programs and icons.

You may need to install chipset drivers for your computer. Go to the manufacturer website and look for something called a chipset driver or SATA driver. It sounds like your south bridge (Which controls data transfer) may be whack. When you download run the Wizzard and you will most likely be prompted to "install", "repair", and "Uninstall", click repair. restart and see if that helps.

Are you sure data transfer might be the issue? Remember i said the rest of the computer works fine, except the startup is just segmented. Also btw i have a dell xps 8300.

You also have to realize all your computer drivers which run your computer are located on the HDD. When I had a similar problem all I did was re-install chipset drivers and everything worked again. It just seems like the chipset is slowing the progression of drivers.

Latest chipset drivers never harm.

What AV are you running?

I found two off of Dell's website for that model

Try this link first.

http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/ca/en/cadhs1?c=ca&l=en&s=dhs&~ck=mn

If not perhaps these

http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/ca/en/cadhs1/DriverDetails/DriverFileFormats?DriverId=V9V7Y&FileId=2731098477&productCode=xps-8300&urlProductCode=False

http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/ca/en/cadhs1/DriverDetails/DriverFileFormats?DriverId=FHM51&FileId=2731098472&productCode=xps-8300&urlProductCode=False

I can't really tell which one you might need.

Please press the following link and enter your "Service Tag" (the coded sticker on every Dell Desktop):
http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/19/DriversHome/NeedProductSelection

From there, you'll be able to browse for all Dell drivers you might need. They are usually compressed (.zip)files, but will open up when you double-click on them like an executable (installation file for example) would.
While you're at it, you could install the other available drivers as well, they never hurt.
There used to be a Dell download center, I'm not sure if it still exists, but I would advice you to download and install the drivers manually.

If you have trouble finding the right driver, or with installing them, please report back with your DELL SERVICE TAG (no personal information can be traced from that), and we'll help you step by step.

If the issue still persists after installing the latest drivers, please don't hesitate to let us know.
And if the issue is solved..., let us know as well please.

Maybe you have a lot of things / apps installed in your computer or you can defrag your computer to sort out important applications.

I'd follow S3cS3arch3r's link and actually select your computer model.

You have indeed found the right link adit17! :thumbup2:
And here's the installation instructions from that same link for your convenience, to quote Dell:



"Hard Drive Installation (via WinZip) with Setup.exe File for R284334.exe

Download

1.Click Download Now, to download the file.
2.When the File Download window appears, click Save (Windows XP
users will click Save) this program to disk and click OK. The Save In:
window appears.
3.From the Save In: field, click the down arrow then click to
select Desktop and click Save. The file will download to your desktop.
4.If the Download Complete window appears, click Close. The file
icon appears on your desktop.

Install

1.Double-click the new icon on the desktop labeled R284334.exe.
2.The Self-Extracting window appears and prompts you to extract or
unzip to C:\DELL\DRIVERS\R284334. Write down this path so the executable (I.e.
Setup.exe) file can be found later.
3.The Self-Extractor window appears.
4.Click OK.
5.After completing the file extraction, if the Self-Extractor
window is still open, close it.
6.Click the Start button and then click Run.
7.Type C:\DELL\DRIVERS\R284334 in the Open textbox and then click OK.
8.Follow the on-screen installation instructions."




Install this like you would do with any other software, installation of the Dell drivers should be a breeze...
If this not resolves your issue, please let us know:
  • When and how it started,
  • What you modified or did before the issue started,
  • If you changed any hardware recently,
  • If you changed any settings recently,
  • If you changed AV recently,
  • And if you yourself think you can link this issue to any software.
