Q -- Slow starting

Post by Rick » Fri, 05 Feb 1999 04:00:00



My system starts very slow -- it looks normal when it first starts the
windows screen and all, then it drops back down to the dos view where it
sits for more then a Minute before windows starts.  I really don't
understand why...

PLEASE HELP...

Rick,
    Has it alway been this slow? When did you notice this? After you
installed something? What is your system configuration? Do you have
partitions?

Rick,
    For some unknown reason, I had this exact same problem for several
months. I had about the same partition configuration as you. It would do it
even after about 20+ reformats (for beta testing). I COMPLETELY deleted
everything and started over with different sized partitions and it went
away! It is the only thing that I can think of (for me) that could have
changed. Good Luck! Let me know what happens...

Remove the Ethernet card and reboot. My card causes this problem.
