When I bootup my win 7 PC I just turn it on ant then I will see my cursor at the top left hand corner of the screen blinking for 2 to 3 minutes befor I see the MS splash screen upon starting up my PC. It takes a total of 4 mins to bootup in total. What is causing this?
I have a similar problem that I found was caused by my HP all in one network printer, if the printer is turned on during boot up, the cycle is about 3 minutes, when its turned off during boot the puter starts right up
I have an HP printer hooked up as well. I uninstalled it and unhooked it but still had same results of 4 min upon boot up.
Ok, Under other devices there is 2 entries of "IPMI interfaces" and "PCI serial Port" with yellow ! point next to them. How would I go abouts fixing this please? I appreciate your help. Should I click on each one and click update driver?
Edit: I tried to update but there were no updates available. Now what do I do please?
Hmmm.. Those should normally be installed as part of the motherboard's drivers... Did you do that? If not - Go to your motherboard's maker's website, and download them. From there, you have two choices: Run the executable, or (unzip as necessary) go to Device Manager and point the "Have Disc" option to the folder you downloaded the mobo drivers to.
It would happen when I had a cd/dvd in the drive. While it was hanging at the blinking cursor I ejected the media and it jumped straight into the splash screen.
Love Win 7, it runs circles around Vista that came loaded on this machine. I had downgraded to XP before this beta came out. Haven't had any problems and have been running it as a production environment.
