|"I bought a vista desktop last summer and havnt had any trouble, recently though the screen broke and i sent it for warranty, got it back today and monitor is fine."|
Most desktop computers don't have a built in display.
Do you mean it's a PC computer, and you're not telling us it's it's a laptop/notebook/netbook, or is it one of those out of the ordinary desktops that has the display built in, such as a HP or Dell one?
Tell us the make and model of your brand name system, or if you have a generic desktop system, the make and model of the mboard.
The specific model of a brand name system is shown on a label on the outside of the case somewhere, or it can often be determined by going to the brand name's web site.
The model, sometimes the make, of a mboard in a generic desktop system is usually printed on the mboard's surface in obvious larger characters, often between the slots.
The model is often also displayed on a logo (graphical) screen early in the boot, but it's often not as specific as the specific model number.
For Dell computers, they have a Service Tag number - the specific model can be determined by using that on their site, or can often be determined there automatically by you downloading some software. The Service Tag number should be on a label on the outside of the case, probably on the bottom on a laptop, on the back on a desktop, and is often also shown in the bios Setup.
Did you have to ship it away from the city or town where you live to have it repaired, or was it repaired locally?
Did they re-load the original software on your system, and if so, why? They should not need to do that, if they were merely replacing the display.
Was the computer fine when you first got it back, or has it been slow since you got it back?
The two situations are different.
If it was fine when you first go it back, the problems may have been caused by something YOU did, or something YOU got on the computer.
The following assumes it's always been slow since you got it back.
A common thing that can happen with ram, even ram that worked fine previously, is the ram has, or has developed, a poor connection in it's slot(s).
This usually happens a long time after the ram was installed, but it can happen with new ram, or after moving the computer case from one place to another, and I've had even new modules that needed to have their contacts cleaned.
See response 2 in this - try cleaning the contacts on the ram modules, and making sure the modules are properly seated:
For a laptop, or netbook, you must remove both its main battery and AC adapter before you do that.
For a brand name computer, see the Owner's or User's manual if you need to - how to remove or replace the ram is usually in that - it may already be in your installed programs. If you can't get into Windows, it may be on a disk that came with the computer, or you can go online and look at it or download it - it's in the downloads for your specific model.
If that doesn't help......
If the original software WAS re-loaded, and if the place the warranty work was done was local, take it back and have them fix your problems - they probably didn't do it right!
If the original software WAS re-loaded, and if the place the warranty work was done was NOT local - they probably didn't do it right! You should be able to take it to a local place that is autourized to work on the brand and have the problem fixed under warranty.
If the original software was NOT re-loaded, then your system should work the same as before, unless something got knocked loose while it was being transported. If re-seating the ram doesn't help, you may need to make a claim for shipping damage, if that applies, and have the computer fixed locally, if you so choose.
Some recent mboards have a built in feature that can boot Vista (or Windows 7, probably) much faster than it normally would, if you install certain software in Windows, and if you enable certain settings in the mboard's bios Setup.
Without that feature, Vista takes longer to boot, but it certainly would not take as long as you are describing.
