I'm not sure if you can post problems here, but worth a try. While I was playing Portal I got a strange blue screen so I shut down my computer. As I turn it back on it starts up very slow and freezes at the start up windows screen with the glowing windows logo. If I leave it like that for a few min it finally starts up. I can play high end games like MW2 and AoC for hours with no problems but I still have a slow start-up...any ideas why?

It could be any number of issues, more details like full system specs, OS, BSOD codes, etc would be good to know.

Potential list is OS not updated, missing files/bad registry's, bad drivers, malware, virus, those are the big software candidates.

Hardware could be bad RAM, bad PSU, bad MOBO, bad CPU so yea.
