Boot time?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Why does it take me about 1 minute, or more to get into windows?

I just did a fresh install and still slow.

The only reason i formated was because of that , it was taking me 2-3 minutes to boot.

Why is this?

What could be causing it?

PS. Yes Windows XP Pro SP 3

It takes me about 45 seconds to get to the Desktop from OFF. Doesn't sound too bad to me. Maybe if you add more RAM???

Have you gone into MSconfig and checked how many things are loading at startup? (done defrag, maybe a registry fixer)

Sadly my sig rig takes a little over a minute to boot from off to desktop as well. Wracked my brains trying to figure out why, but finally gave up and blamed it on Vista. But you're right, XP shouldn't be coming up that slow. Hope you can figure it out.

Muahs!!! Check the sig

One thing I have noticed is that SP3 is pretty thick when it comes to running on hardware, compared to SP2.
