Hi guys !

A friend has a minor problem on his HP desktop PC. When he starts up his PC from cold boot it sits at the Blue HP screen for over 2 mins then boot into Windows Vista. When he first bought this computer it never took that long, he thinks it only took a matter of seconds. I tried a few things when he was showing me this problem. When we warm boot his computer (just restarting it from start menu from windows) it only takes a matter of seconds to get passed the Blue HP screen and start loading windows. When we did a cold boot, (manually turning it off and turning it on from the PC itself) It takes alot longer to get passed this blue HP screen. According to him it just starting taking this long to load recently. Not sure why myself. Just wondering if u guys can give me any ideas why. Here is my friends PC's Specs. Let me know if you need more info..

Check the bios to see if there are any options for quickboot. Make sure the hard drive is set as the primary boot device as well. Some newer model PC's have the option to boot from lan. So it may be trying to do that, taking forever until it actually proceeds on to the hard drive.

Not really sure why it would take longer to post if you just power it off though :/
