Slow startup

My computer takes about 1.5 minutes to get to the windows welcome screen. after the first 15 seconds of startup, it goes to a black screen with a blinking spacebar in the upper left corner and it hangs there for about a minute and then goes to the welcome screen.

I have 2 programs in my startup list, that's it.
This problem is about 4 months old. It just started all of a sudden.

I got pretty used to it but now it's getting annoying.

Help would be great!

Thanks.

Hi emery...

Are all your device drivers up to date? Are you booting with a flash drive connected?

start > run, type
eventvwr.msc
<enter>

Right click application and choose CLEAR ALL EVENTS, do not save the log
Right click system and choose CLEAR ALL EVENTS, do not save the log

Reboot. Work with computer until error recurs. reboot

start > run, type
eventvwr.msc
<enter>

Look under systems and applications for items with red Xs that happened at the SAME time as your problem...list them here.

Wannebe1,

No flash drive is connected on bootup. Is there an easy way I can check to see if my drivers are up to date?

Gerry,

I will try this when I get back from work this afternoon.

Thanks for your replies.

double click the two under APPLICATION and copy the info here


Also

hit f8 during boot up and choose ENABLE BOOT LOGGNG from the advanced startup menu

after the boot, go to the c:\windows directory, find ntbtlog.txt

attach that to next post

ugh, Dutch....I really don't think that is the cause of the slow down unless you are doing a backup at start up...are you? VSS is used by backup

I don't backup anything at startup. I couldn't find the file ntblog.txt in the c:\windows directory. I then searched the harddrive for the file, but no luck.

yes, I did. It was called: logboekregistratie voor opstartprocedure inschakelen. It pretty much means: enable boot loggind option. It was the 4th option from the top to choose from in the advanced boot menu.

ntbtlog.txt was not there? Look for any text file created in last 10 minutes

very odd...I suppose the Dutch version could name the file something else.


Have you run a chkdsk /r on this thing lately?

ARGH! :blink: Please don't get mad at me like I just got at myself...

I missed the second ''t'' in ntbTlog.txt. Sorry for this, I am a bit tired from work I guess.

I will reboot into enable boot loggind option and add the file as an attachment.

Sorry again. :whistling:
