This could be a problem with the HDD not spinning up fast enough. There is a way (I believe) for a setting in BIOS to be altered to delay the startup but I don't know where it is to be found. Perhaps someone reading this will be able to help.

How far through boot do you get?

Have you tried typeing "SFC" into the run box and running the system file checker?

Have you tried a thorough scandisk to pick up bad sectors etc?
