There could be number of reasons why desktop is taking long time to boot. Its very hard to tell w/o visual inspection and/or testing your desktop.

Are you seeing any errors? It could be due to a:

  • Bad Power supply.
  • Bad fan(s).
  • Bad Hardware.
  • Faulty RAM.
  • Loose component or cable on the main board.
  • Bad cable, maybe a bad power cable or broken cable.
  • Failing power switch etc.
  • HDD is short on available disk space.
  • Many software programs have been installed/uninstalled leaving behind bad files and/or confusing the software.
  • The Data maybe corrupted.
  • Computer(that is your processor) is overheating.

See the main board manual if you need to know  how to remove or replace the RAM.

Power supply may be in the process of failing. Failing power supplies are common and can cause your symptoms. Check your Power Switch. They often partially work, fans and hard drives may spin, lead may come on, yet you may get no video and the main board will not boot all the way.

You can usually replace it with any decent standard sized standard ATX PS with the same capacity or greater.

If you're a Gamer – The maximum capacity rating of the PS is an intermittent rating. It's recommended that you do not load your  PS(Power switch), if you are going to be using something that puts a constant load on it, such as playing a recent game for hours on end.

In that case, you multiply the min capacity stated for the system with the particular video chipset on the card by 1.25 to find the min. capacity of the PS you should get.If you need to get a Power Switch with more capacity, you can usually replace it with any decent standard sized standard ATX PS.

If there is a loose connection of the case wiring from the power switch at the end connector where it plugs onto the 2 pins for that on the motherboard, pressing the power switch may be unreliable.

If the case has a Reset switch, on ATX cases, the power switch and reset switch are the same type – momentary contact, on only when pressed in. You could try connecting the Reset switch wiring connector to the Power switch pins on the motherboard, and use the Reset switch as the Power switch, but there's probably nothing wrong with the Power switch.

If by "oldish" you mean 5 or more years old, then by all means, trash that computer and get yourselves a new or newer computer that will work much faster! You would likely spend more money attempting to "fix up, "clean up" and "speed up" that old computer than it's actually worth!

You didn't give any details about the RAM speed or processor speed, the two main items that determine how fast your computer will start up and operate. About the minimum RAM you should have today is 4 GB of RAM and processor(s) speed of 2.00 Ghz. That will give you excellent operating speeds and memory.

 If you're running an anti-virus, try turning it off and restarting the system. See if windows closes/loads any faster.

If you have a hard disk drive that is 2 GB or smaller, ensure that there is at least 200 MB of hard disk drive space free. If you have a hard drive larger than this size, verify that there is at least 500 MB of free hard disk space. This available space allows the computer to have room for the swap file to increase in size as well as room for temporary files.

Run Scan disk or something equivalent to help ensure that there is nothing physically wrong with the computer hard disk drive.

Run Defrag to help ensure that data is arranged in the best possible order.

Remove or disable any programs that automatically start each time the computer boots.

To solve the problem trying restoring the computer to a previous configuration by starting the computer and pressing on F8, click the option of last known working configuration. This will repair the computer if you did any changes. You can also try repairing windows by doing reinstalling windows using the windows XP CD and clicking on R when setup begins. After you are able access your computer try uninstalling programs that you are not using and adding the memory card and hard disk this is going to help your computer to be faster. To enable the computer to boot faster, reduce the programs that run during the booting of the computer.

To do this go to system configuration utility by pressing on Start>Run >Type msconfig>Startup tab>Uncheck those programs that you do not want to run during startup>Click on apply and then Ok. Exit the system configuration.

Hello dear,

Your computer is an old model. So it doesn’t give you good support. I suggest you to:

  • Increase Your RAM or change to a new one.
  • Change your microprocessor.
  • Increase your drive memory.
  • Scan your whole PC to checking for viruses.
  • Increase your C Drive partition.

Or you can show your computer to a service center. You can change hardware one-by-one. Hopefully your problem will be solved. Thanks.
