Uh not good at all.
Did you reboot and did the test run from the cdrom?
It should have taken longer then this to finish.

You probably need to go into the bios and reset the boot sequence to boot to the cdrom first. Follow the enxt steps to do that. Please make sure the disk you just created is in the cdrom drive before you finish the steps below.

To change Boot Sequence in your BIOS
Reboot the system and at the first post screen (where it is counting up memory) start tapping the DEL button
This will enter you into the Bios\Cmos area.
Find the Advanced area and click Enter
Look for Boot Sequence or Boot Options and highlight that click Enter
Now highlight the first drive and follow the directions on the bottom of the screen on how to modify it and change it to CDrom.
Change the second drive to the C or Main Drive
Once that is done then click F10 to Save and Exit
You will prompted to enter Y to verify Save and Exit. Click Y and the system will now reboot with the new settings.

Skip the downloading of burning software since you already have that.


Let's check your memory and make sure there is no issue with it. Download memtest86 from the link in my signature below.


Get the file that is named Download - The one you want is "Download - Pre-compiled Bootable ISO (.zip). When it downloads, it will be labeled memtest86+2.11.iso.zip
Unzip the file once you download it. You should have a .iso file in the unzipped directory. It will look like a zip file in some cases but the file name will now be memtest86+2.11.iso

if you don't have a burning program that will burn .ISO files get burncdcc in my signature below.

NOTE...do not put a blank cd in until burncdcc opens the tray for you
1. Start BurnCDCC
2. Browse to the ISO file you want to burn on cd/dvd ....in this case its memtest86.iso
3. Select the ISO file
4. click on Start
Make sure the bios is set for the cd drive as the first boot device
Put the cd in the cd drive and then boot your computer.

Running the Diagnostic Program:

The basic diagnostic screen has five main sections of relevant information. Three at the top which are labeled, PASS %, TEST %, and TEST #.
This will basically show you the total progress of the current test, the overall progress of the diagnostic test, and the test number is currently performing.

On the middle left hand side of the of the program interface there is a “Wall Time” section that will keep track of how long the diagnostic test has been running for. This just gives you an idea if you are not attending the testing process.

The main section to look for is the lower half of the screen which is usually blank. As long as the memory testing is going ok with no errors this section of the screen should remain blank.
If the diagnostic program finds any serious faults in the memory you will see it display a memory dump of address’s in this section. This is similar to what is displayed on your screen when you encounter a blue screen of death.

You now have most everything you need to know about setting up and testing your memory with diagnostic programs. This guide should help you get to the source of any intermittent problems related to your memory.

Run memtest for at least 2 hours:
If it starts showing any errors during that time then you will have to replace the memory
If there are no errors after 2 hours press Esc and that will end the tests
We will then try other options

OK how is the system running now?
Was you ever able to get the screenshot of msconfig startups?
How about starting the rechecking of one at a time on the startups and seeing if you could find the culprit for the slowdown?

All the programs I have had you get are ISO files with the exception of Autoruns
They can all be deleted with no residual leftovers. The hd diagnostics are iso's and so is memtest.
Autoruns would be a zip file and the exe file.
Any burning software like imgburn or burncdcc can also be deleetd if you don't want it. You would need to delete the ISO's and the exe files from your desktop assuming that is where you unzipped the files to.
Now as far as the attachments let's see if I can help with that. Go to the top of this page and in the light blue bar toward the right you will see the words My Controls... Click My Controls
On the left side of the page scroll down till you find Manage Your Attachments and click on it.
On the new page you will see a list of all your attachments you have done since being on the board I suspect.
On the right side you will see You have 6 attachments (1% used) or something like this. Directly under that you will see a little box...Click it
Now lower down you will find the Delete Selected button....Click it
Now your attachment space should be free again.
Let me know if this helps out with attaching the Autoruns log
