So, I'm having a problem. When I startup windows 7 (more specs to follow), the BIOS loads, then a bit of a black screen, then the Starting Windows 7 screen, then a longer black screen, then the Welcome Screen, from there it loads the desktop.
The entire startup is over 2 and a half minutes long, and I think that's a little long. All of the loading screens (except the BIOS screen) take a bit. The computer runs fine. I've already cleared my startup items to the bare minimum, and updated all the drivers. I even tried disconnecting all the attached devices, booting in safe mode, it happens all around.
I need help fixing this (if it even is a problem, if not, let me know)
Here are my computer specs:
Windows 7 64bit Professional SP1
Intel Core 2 Duo 2.13 GHz
Conroe 65nm Technology
2.00 GB Dual-Channel DDR2 @ 399MHz (5-5-5-15)
ASUSTeK Computer INC. P5B-Deluxe (LGA 775)
Sparkle GeForce (NVIDIA) 8400GS 512MB DDR3 PCI
HARD DRIVE (which is IDE- can't afford more right now, could that be the problem???)
117GB Seagate ST3120026A ATA Device (PATA)
