[QUOTE=wingenet]I have a similar startup problem. It started when I downloaded the latest nVidia drivers and installed them (v53.03). After discovering the startup delay and removing the new graphics drivers (to no avail), I started a long, long process of uninstalling different software & downgrading/removing drivers in an attempt to discover what was causing this. I assumed it was a conflict between my graphics card drivers (Leadtek A310 TD FX5600) & other software, drivers etc but I eventually took the plunge & re-installed XP. The result is that I am no further forward and the startup delay still exists (so defragging the HD etc etc is absolutely no use whatsoever).

For the moment I have decided to live with it as I don't reboot or power down the PC on a regular basis (as Taiwan says, other than a slow start the pc runs perfectly). I suppose it's one of those Windows niggles we have all grown used to over the years and until I stumble over the solution either on the net or by myself, I'll just have to put up with it. :confused:[/QUOTE]Well, i guess i just have to reinstall my xp again. Whatever, thanks people for helping me out anyways. Well, i hate u bill gates!

I did run a error report and defrag my system, but its still the same. I don't know if its harddrive's problem or not. Its kind of weird. Cause the problem only occur during the startup of xp. Which in that 1min, i simply can't do anything, like connect to internet or open my computer. It lags and slows down. After that 1 min, every program i clicked pops up, my internet connection starts working and my computer opens. This is annoying? what can i do to stop this?:cry:

so i should reinstall my window xp? would that help? cause i don't want to reinstall again it takes alot of time to reinstall all other stuff.

i guess the heat may be one of the problems u have, but yes ur power supply is too weak. For ur system is better to have 300 or above. Plus may be u want to buy a little system fan and screw it in ur comp, it cools down mine alot!

mad dog ur not the only one, i think u have ur point. Overclocking is dangerous sometimes and i don't see the point of overclocking a fast comp. Well only if u have a crappy one. :lol:

My dvd-rom is working fine, but it doesn't auto-load. Recently i reinstalled my window xp because i installed a new motherboard. The old system didn't have this kind of problem but the new one did. Im frustrated sometimes because it stays there, when i put in my music cd or game. Is there anything or anyway i can correct this weird dvd-rom? cause i don't know where did i messed up? it didn't have this kind of problem before...

My comp spec:

Gigabyte Nforce 2 7-N400L
AMD athlon xp 1700
1 GB of ram DDR 400
Geforce 3 ti200
1 dvd rom and 1 cd burner
80GB harddrive (40*2)

;) My comp is really weird. I have installed 1GB of ram, but whenever i restart my comp, when it loads into window XP, i slows down alot. it seems like its trying to load something but nothing comes out. We i click "my computer", it shows a flashlight searching for the files. finally after like 1 min, its back to its "expected speed" why is this happening? i tried to delete all those startup programs but its not working. And I found out that when my window is loading, in windows work manager it says that system Idle Process is taking up 99% of cpu? why is this? I don't think theres a problem with my ram but rather my window, cause i just installed a new motherboard so i have to reinstall my windows, but my old system didn't have this kind of problem. This is really weird. Thanks for helping me out here!
