My computer is a built computer and its got 16gb ram. 3.0 quad AMD processor. AMD HD 6670 video card. 1.5tb HD I am currently running win 8.1, but the results are the same when I had win 7 on it. When my computer is shut down and I turn it on in the morning, it boots fairly fast. Basically from a minute to a minute and a half. However when for some reason I do a restart that is when things change. Generally it takes close to 5 minutes for it to do a restart. It takes a long time to get to the MSI motherboard logo, after that it boots ok. If any of you have any ideas what the problem might be, i would appreciate hearing from you all. Thanks in advance for your help.
