Is this a slow boot time for a HDD? New computer

Bought this computer less than 2 weeks ago. It has a 1TB HDD not sure what brand and my computer takes around 40 seconds to start up, that includes the time it takes for my start up program (only have 1 start up program). So is 40 seconds really bad or no?

Other details if important:

CPU: i5 3450 (quad)
GPU: HD 7750
8gb RAM

to do list :
>find setting in BIOS to set fast boot, instead of displaying logo bios
>set sata mode to AHCI (google it, there are step-by-step tutorial to enable AHCI)
>defragment your HDD
