Laptop Slow Boots Times Tags: Laptops Msconfig Last response: August 16, 2012 10:22 AM in Laptops & Notebooks Share Lazdaa August 14, 2012 9:32:23 PM hi Guys! Recently my laptop seems to be hanging a bit at boots... It's stuck several minutes (Haven't counted but i believe so) on a black screen Like so with a blinking dot or something in the upper left side. I've tried disabling almost everything in the msconfig boots but i'm not sure that it's the place i should be looking, thats why im asking here.. What do you think could be the problem here? And how should i fix it? Regards - Lazdaa More about : laptop slow boots times hpfreak a b D Laptop August 14, 2012 9:37:04 PM Go to the BIOS, and see which drive is set as booting. You might have a USB drive.. or a DVD Drive set for 1st priority in the boot order. Change it to the Hard drive if that is the case. Good luck, Lazdaa August 15, 2012 10:20:10 AM Ok, so i went into boot settings and it seems like thats the problem.. But this may be a silly question but how do i know which one is my HDD? This is my options: P0: Optiarc DVD RW AD-7580S P4: ST9500420AS Realtek Boot Agent WD My Passport 07401003 (This would be my external HDD) WD SES Device 1003 I'm thinking that it's the WD SES but i'm not sure what the others things are (except from the DVD drive and the external) EDIT: Under the main menu i found the Serial ATA: AST9500420AS (500GB) So i guess this is the HDD?
