This is driving me crazy. My Dell Inspiron 530 delays for several minutes on the DELL logo screen where it shows F-2 and F12 up in the top corner. It always eventually starts, but it takes a long time. When i hear the hard drive make a sound, it starts on through the startup normally. I have to believe this is a simple fix. Can you help me?
