When I boot my PC up (using Windows XP), it goes through the usual checks & I get the black screen with the Windows XP is loading picture with the scrolling blue bars.
After that the screen goes black & the hard-drive stops for approx 90-120 seconds. During this time there is no activity at all from the PC.
Once the 90-120 seconds is up, the PC then loads perfectly normal.
Any suggestions ??
