Sometimes, when it boots up, it takes 6 minutes or more.
I use the one ISA slot for Roland midi interface and sound canvas, and three PCI slots, one for NVanta Video, one for Midiman audiophile audio, one for Agere generic modem. I have a Lexmark X74 75 All in One printer/scanner/fax, and an Epson 3170 Perfection Scanner. But these are add ons, this computer has been doing the slow and unrecognizing routine for months.
Any similar experiences? Thank you for your interest and help.
