try using bootvis u can download it from filemirrors.com and run it. Bootvis will tell when, what, how long, and which drivers are loading when you boot up. That way you can see where the hang up is. You can even have it optimize ur boot if u want. If all your hardware is configured correctly you should be able 2 get ur PC 2 boot in about 10 seconds

Hi,

Try a Diagnostics Startup and if problem goes away, try a Selective Startup to narrow what item is causing the slow bootup.

See http://www.mytechsupport.ca/index.php?option=com_smf&Itemid=42&topic=941 for more details.

If the problem persists using Diagnostics Startup, then try Safe-Mode (hit <F8> during bootup right before the Windows logo screen to access boot menu). If the problem goes away in Safe-Mode, then the problem is most likely relating to a device driver. I would update video, network, sound card drivers.
