  DAKAR 18:24 05 Nov 2008

Hi all
Recently my computer is very slow to boot up I am running XP sp3 from initial power up it takes approx 2 to 3 minutes to get to the desk top
Any Thoughts as to what I could check or do to speed things up
Thanks for help

try these:

-> Start, Run, type "msconfig" without the qoutes, carefully search for unwanted startup items or non microsoft services which may slow your boot time.

-> Run click here if you already havnt.

-> Update your system drivers

-> Defrag your pc

Maybe one of these may improve boot time, if not we will try other methods.
