Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
I am running Windows Xp Media Center edition. When booting up, there is a long delay (30-90 seconds) at the "Welcome" screen. After that has passed, my wallpaper displays but I need to wait another 1 or 2 minutes before the taskbar or icons show. I have a fast computer and plenty of ram. I disabled some services with msconfig months ago but the slow booting happened this week. I was desperate and edited the prefetch to 3 (i don't know if that harmed or hurt it). The newest change I can think of is that i installed a new HP printer. If there are any ideas, please help. Thanks a bunch to everyone in advance.
Hi, Since you have tried most if not all of the logical possible remedies, perhaps you can try: 1. Remove all USB connections to your computer the boot; 2. Uninstall your new HP printer; 3. On powerup hit "del" or whatever it is to enter your CMOS/BIOS setup. Select Optimized settings. Check/verify that your CPU is at correct FSB, mem cache latency at 2; 4. Verify that the PC is reading/accessing all of your 2Gb mem; 5. Run your Windows in Safe Mode (though startup maybe even longer) and run MsConfig again. Pls note any changes from your last modification; Hope that this be of further help/idea. Good luck and kind regards.

Make sure your hard disk is in partition. Partition mostly used in a internet cafe they have a hard disk c and d. So you better try to this if your problem fix this then it's good.

If your computer is running slow, the only thing i know of that you could do, is replace the motherboard and the CPU. It would probably cost $300-$500. Or if you want to go the easy way, buy a new computer.
