Extremely slow startup boot.

you get there by tapping the delete key as soon as your press the power button...yours may be different..read your screen when you first power up
you will have to search around for it...then save your settings (usually F10 but read the screens to be sure)

because its taking 5 minutes to get thru the POST operation instead of the 10 seconds or less thats normal...you may have to reflash the bios..not something I would normally recommend because if you screw it up ..you would then have a expensive doorstop..

Amazing as it seems, this computer is optimized for a dial up modem. Furthermore, it is not possible to achieve your broadband providers top speeds without adjusting your internet settings.
go here and get .. The TCP Optimizer is a free, easy Windows program that provides an intuitive interface for tuning and optimizing your Internet connection. There is no installation required, just download and run.
try going into the bios and set it to the default or safe settings..
you should have someone flash your bios for you and test your power supply

reflashed the bios...I assume using the latest bios...
made sure the hard drive is using dma mode...
run chckdsk...and its not showing any errors...
you say after a 10 minute boot time it runs normally
this leaves bad memory or the power supply has issues...
run memtest for 4 hours
lets make sure its not your memory going bad...get memtest + here....
the lowdown is here...
if you have a floppy drive you can get the 6th one down ...set the bios to boot from the floppy drive A: first...then the cd drive then the Hard drive C:
or you can get the 2nd one down and burn the ISO file to a cd and then boot it from the cd drive...let memtest run for at least 4 hours...if it starts showing any errors during that time then you will have to replace the RAM...no errors after 4 hours just press Esc to end the tests and we will try some other tests
