hello. since i switched off pc from the mains it has been taking 10 mins to boot up.i have now found that if i unplug the usb lead for my printer from back of pc it boots up normally but plugged in takes 10 mins. i have changed the lead, and still the same so the lead is ok. i have tryed another device in usb port while booting and it boots up normally so i think usb ports are ok. once computer has started i plug printer back in and the printer works normally. im confused can anyone help me please?

Hi, perhaps if you re-install the printer software, the slight problem might disappear.
