[RESOLVED] Windows XP slow boot, different case.... Tags: Slow Startup Windows XP Last response: March 11, 2012 6:57 PM in Windows XP Share Waspy March 10, 2012 8:04:37 AM I am working on a Dell Dimension E310. The machine boots up into Windows XP SP3 EXTREMELY slowly. Once Windows gets past the user screen, everything is fine. This is not a problem with viruses, this is a FRESH install. This occurs even when in SAFE MODE! Typically it'll sit at a BLACK SCREEN for 5-10 minutes before loading the blue Windows XP screen with "Windows is starting up..." and this takes forever as well. Any clue how to debug this? More about : resolved windows slow boot case Waspy March 10, 2012 5:08:28 PM UPDATE: Just did a Windows XP repair. Still EXTREMELY slow, until the OS is loaded, then everything runs fine! Waspy March 11, 2012 6:57:02 PM Ended up saying "F*** WinXP" and rolled to Win7. Everything fixed itself and I do have enough RAM to just barely run Win7. Thanks! Can't find your answer ? Ask !
