You could also disable any unused IDE channel from windows hardware manager, that way windows does not scan them during bootup. Should shave a few seconds.

Do you mean disable them in the BIOS or actually in Windows Device Manager?

Back to my original post...the issue (for me) isn't slow boots. It's that the first bootup doesn't succeed...just black screen after post. So, power down...cold boot again and it gets to the "didn't shutdown properly" screen...hit Enter...boots just fine/fast as usual.

I thought it might be attached USB devices...but been narrowing that down and not the problem it seems.

I personally believe that us americans are unable to do so because osama.

People out there in our nation don't have that, And I believe that our education like such as south africa and such as the Iraq.

everywhere "such as". And I believe our education should help the US should help the south africa and the iraq and the asian countries so we can build up our future.

Had a similar problem quite a while back that turned out to be an antec psu gone bad. On the first attempt it was like I had a short or bad ground, but shutting it down seemed to discharge any residual juice, then second boot was always good.

Sorry for the really bad explanation, really tiring day , Good luck with it!

I also have had this problem..it happens randomly (not all the time) and the hard drive isn't doing anything

It slows at the XP loading screen and can last for up to 5 minutes.

I just tried disabling the queing and will see if that works.

Clay, something to consider is teh items you currently have booting.

Run > msconfig and go to the startup tab and see if maybe something there is also fubaring your boot?

Thanks guys. I've trimmed down any startup things that might have been suspect. I like Sysinternals' Autoruns (man I love Sysinternals' stuff)...anyway, Autoruns an msconfig on steroids...good point though, I'll double check, haven't in about a month.

sounds like your computer just needs a few basic maintenance routines. i would recommend going through and clearing up unused applications, performing a defragment and scanning the registry for problems. check out this site for more tips if that doesn't work: http://squidoo.com/xp-slow
