i have a slow start-up, which takes about 1min to start up on windows XP pro. this is far too long. i also have a light-up USB keyboard, and after about 30 seconds, the the light either turns off or it blinks off for a few seconds and comes back on. i just recently fixed some errors in the event viewer, so there is no errors in it. and my startup in msconfig is my antivirus, my graphics drivers and the integrated mobo sound. any thoughts?

How much ram have you got? Windows XP need 256 minimum

My fastest boot time was 21 seconds from cold Grin but that was with 2 and a half Gb of ram which wasn't minePfft

Well that could possibly be a software problem. I suggest backing up only important text files and formatting. Reinstall the OS and put the files back on slowly install the applications you had previously especially the downloaded ones keep checking for ay dips in performance. Also a full proper and HONEST defrag does a supprising amount of good.Grin
