I brought my tower to friend today and it worked at his place. We thought it was either my mouse or keyboard. It turned out to be the printer. If I disconnect the printer it boots fast. Reconnect it and it's slow again. There is a yellow mark in DM, it is there whether the printer is plugged in or not. Here is a screen shot of it.

There are two problems, every time I try to reinstall the VGA driver by choosing the find it on the web option it can't be found? Also, If I keep the printer plugged in it still will take forever to boot?

if its a onboard video..go to the computer manufactures website and get your chipset drivers and video drivers if the have any...if its a add in card go to the video card manufactures website and get their driver..

about this...

Also, If I keep the printer plugged in it still will take forever to boot?

are you asking me or telling me...

try this ...go to the control panel...folder options...view...uncheck automatically search for network folders and printers..
look in your bios and find where you have the option to let windows or the bios load the drivers that are needed to boot...whatever way its set ...switch it to the other..usually located in the section PCI/UPnP

I went to the CP and unchecked that box. I can't find the section in the BIOS you are talking about.

PS: The ? was only to indicate my confusion/frustration. My attempt at humor.

you will have to look around in the bios...should look something like mine...
I believe your having a IRQ conflict ...toggling the setting should take care of it...

give me your GT5244E serial number...I'll try and get a manual for your bios...
how to find your serial number here...
did you get the VGA driver installed...
how is your printer connected to your computer...usb ?...if its usb it can not be connected to a usb hub...connect it to one that is on the back of the tower and on the motherboard...
what other devices do you have connected...
