Question about Acer Aspire 3690-2196 Notebook
I have 5 to 6 minute boots times and software is extremely slow to load. Running XP Media Center edition, all software set not to load on start up by msconfig, except for norton. I have ran full HDD defrag, upgraded to 2gb ram. Task manager shows what ever my current task is as using most of the processor time. HDD light seems to stay on constantly durring boot. Have done full scan using norton and "spy-bot search and distroy".
Well this is an obvious fix but replace your HDD with a 7200 rpm SATA HDD from http://www.newegg.com
It should be a fairly cheap upgrade depending on how much storage you need.
You should see a significant improvement. I be willing to bet your HDD is a slow 5200 rpm and slow seek time.
Remember, the slowest parts of your computer is your HDD and CDROM
