Sloooooooow Boot Time


Recommended Posts

After Windows XP Pro Build 2600 was installed, I restarted my computer to test booting time. It booted up in under 30 seconds.

I restarted again for something else and now it takes about 5-7 minutes for the splash screen to go away, sometimes it will go away quick but my screen will stay black for about 5 minutes, anyone know why I'm having this problem?

IF you have installed take two from roxio it could cause this problem, it did for me!

could be your network card.... waiting for a reply then timing out when nothing is found

takes about 2 minutes i think to time out used to do it to me

I think it's something to do with your fifteen-foot-long signature.

LOL - Why did we move on? All they added was a new GUI and a few card games and BOOM, you have a ?300 program that runs 500x slower.
