I need a little help here trying to figure out what could be causing this. I just received a Dell Dimension XPS Desktop computer. I just did a Clean OEM install of XP Home. During the install i had the selection of NTFS(Quick) or NTFS. I choose NTFS with out the quick because i wanted to make sure the hard drive was completely wiped out.
Now heres the problem
When the computer first turns on it goes through the POST very fast then it goes black for about 2 mins. Then it gose to the screen shown in the attachment. ( i just found that pic online because i cant take as screenshot that early) Now it will stay there and slowly go through that process for about 5 mins. Then XP Loading Screen comes on for like 5 seconds and then Logon screen. Now the computer is Extremely fast after it passes that Screen.
So my Question is: What do you guys think is causing this, Did i choose the wrong Format and maybe go back and choose the NTFS(Quick) Or just load her up with some more Ram.
CPU 3.20 GHZ and 3.19 GHZ
1 GIG Ram
