Why is our dell pc starting up so slow
This could have a million possible soultions. Some general possibilities are a recent software or driver update, a recently installed program, a recenly installed piece of hardware, or some malicious software.
You could also have a drive error. If you are using windows, run the checkdisk utility.
Right click on C: drive and choose Properties
Tool Tab>Check Now
Enable both options and click Start
Answer Yes or Ok for any following dialog boxes
Reboot and let the utility run - this can take several hours
The computer will eventually return to Windows
You should do this for every hard drive, but only C: drive will require a reboot.
If it is still running slow, reply to this post and I'll offer some free software suggestions to clean up your computer, but please indicate your operating system, anti-virus, anti-spyware, and firewall software.
Hope this helps - Good luck!
