I built a Pc with the specs below about 6 mos ago. Had no isse until about 3 weeks ago when the graphics card as well a one of the 2 sticks of memory went bad. I do not know what caused both to go bad but I am assuming power issue, PS good so I will be getting a UPS. The issue is that from the end of BIOS (starting windows) screen to desktop used to be about 15 seconds now it is 70 seconds. I was thinking that maybe Win 7 got corrupted. What do you think? Thanks

Just figured I would post back...it was the printer slowing down the start up. Unplugged from the USB and reloaded the drivers and were back in business.

Normally I don't install any of the printer bloatware. If I have to, I don't let it start when Windows starts.

run "msconfig" and keep only what you need at start up.
