  1. No. I think you laptop will start faster than that, but the first time window starts, it takes some times for configuration etc. Are there anything that you can describe to assist us to find out what is wrong?

    Thanks but I have now had my IT guy at work sort it out. The supplier could not. It was something to do with the BIOS settting on the laptop being for windows 7 professioal and not the home basic which it came loaded with. He changed that setting and it is now almost instantaneoous when booting up. No more problem..

    It's good to know this.
