Slow to load

April 28, 2009 at 06:50:46
Specs: Windows XP
When I boot my PC it gets past the XP splash screen and then it appears to hang for 2-3 mins. There appears to be no hard disc activity during this time (no lights) and the monitor goes into standby.
After 2-3 mins it then appears to suddenly wake up and continues to load.
Any ideas what is causing this please?

It sounds like it might be having a problem with a hardware device. Try disconnecting each one for a test. Start with the CD/DVD drive.

Thank you, I appreciate your reply.
To be honest this issue has evident for quite a long while. If it points to hardware It may be the printer actually as this started at a time when there was an issue with the printer. I am sure that I did try uninstalling and reinstalling it at the time but I will look there first.
