PC Slow to Boot Up

  Crubel 19:42 16 Mar 2004

My laptop now seems to be taking forever to boot up...approx 4 to 5 mins. I have restored the PC and it makes no difference. OS is Win XP Pro and PC is a Sony laptop, P4 1.6Ghz, 512M, 30Gb HDD.

Any ideas?

Perhaps too many apps at startup:

Go to start, run and type


then under the startup tab, disable any that you don't need.

Thanks for the suggestion. Have tried unticking everything on the list but to no avail.

Any other ideas?

If it's any help, the HDD seems to 'hang' for a while during bootup (with a blank screen).
