My pc use to take 10 to 15 minutes to start up because I only had 128 megs on it. But since I added more and now I have 512, it still isn't impressive to me.

See the BC pinned slow computer troublechecking checklist:


Slow booting may be caused by many of the things listed in that post.

Well you slow boot time could be caused by a large amount of programs in your start up folder. I found this to be true especially when running aol or msn messingers, system monitors, antiviruses and such. just shut some of these programs till you are connected to the net and it should boot alot faster..

Good Luck :thumbsup:
