I don’t know if the problem is (a) compatibility of Vista to my system; (b) problem with my hardware and peripherals; (c) defective windows vista. In any case, I need to fix this problem as I consume a lot of time just waiting for my computer to boot.
I have an HP Core Duo having 2 GB RAM. Vista is Home Premium Edition. Whenever the system needs to start up, it takes up at least minimum 10 minutes before it lands on the desktop. The sound of the hard drive can be heard meaning it is booting up but the screen is steadily blank and black. After the extremely long wait for boot-up, the computer works fine. Everything is OK, opening websites, opening files and even connecting to network drives and files. I am only concerned with the start up. Are there ways to speed up the boot process?
