Slow bootup

I installed the 1GB memory. Should this not increase bootup speed because my pc is still slow.

I have 2 laptops with Vista. Both had 1GB of memory and I upgraded one to 2GB. This boots up much faster now than it did before (& closes) and also much faster than the one left with 1GB in it.
Have you checked in your start up programmes to see what is loading as you are booting up?

Is there a lot of programs running in the background e.g. anti-virus, firewall? Also try defragmenting the hard drive
