Hello all, my name is Vinit. I have got a new CPU assembled which have
1 Gigabyte B75M-D3H Motherboard
1 i3 3rd Gen 3220 Processor LGA1155
2 4GB Corsair Vengeance
1 2GB Nvidia GT 620
1 500GB Seagate HD
1 1TB Seagate HD
ATX Cabinet with 550V power supply

The main problem the CPU/Computer takes time (15 mins+) to boot. (From Bios to Windows logo). After that it works normally.
So what can be the reason behind the time taken to go from Bios to Windows logo screen?
What can I do? Any solution to this problem.
I'll be highly grateful!
Thanks in Anticipation!!

Did you reuse the Hard Drive that already had windows installed on it?

Right click on Computer and click on Manage and then select Event Viewer. Go to the System - Windows logs section and check which process is taking up more time during booting up. Try checking the boot speed in safe mode and compare.

Hi :) 

Run a hard drive test in DOS...HIRENS CD etc, it sounds like a failing hard drive...

All the best Brett :)

Yes I did use the hard drive which had windows already installed. After that I formatted the drive and again installed the Windows, but still the same problem.

I went and saw the events but I didn't understand a thing :( 
Also I have saved the events, if possible I can send you via email.

Is it right click on properties of drive, then select tools tab and check the disk. I did that too and no errors were found.
