A good idea is to look for a light on the laptop that indicates your hard drive activity - if this is flashing constantly or nearly always on then your disk is running fairly high which means it is processing information - If the light is flashing a lot, leave the laptop until it has stopped and then login - this will prove if it is a logon issue or too many programs tyring to start when you have switched on the latop.
Therefore the other area you could look into is how much is starting up when you boot into windows. Type msconfig in "Start > run....". Have a look at the startup tab and see what else is loading. Careful here though - dont go changing anything as this really should only be used to check what else is starting at windows logon.
If there is a lot of programs, try to identify what there are, search the internet for help and see if you can disable these from starting up.
If there are not too many applications loading at startup then try logging on a another user and see if this helps
If it is neither of these then make disable your network card - at logon the pc may be looking for an unknown server and timing out. Disabling the network card will stop the pc from looking for remote services.
And lastly, another option would be to run a virus check on your pc - always try to have a virus program running expecially on laptops. It may cost you but will make your laptop run better.
Hope this helps!
