    too long boot time (nearly 200 seconds)

    hi every one
    i use a hp pavilion laptop with 2 gb ram and centrino1.73ghz c2d vista ultimate 64bit.
    most of the times when i press power button(when my laptop is switch off or say shut down)the very "first screen" which shows hp logo,intel logo and phoenix logo along with press del and press f..... options remains for too long and i mean too long i.e. nearly 160 seconds.
    but this problem occurs 8 outta 10 times.
    and whenever this problem occurs , cd rom icon from "my computer" window disappears and thus i cant use my cd/dvd rom.
    bt when on switching on the "first screen" shows for a fraction of a second then everything works fine and cd/dvd rom appears in "my computer" window.
    i thought that there might be some problem in my hdd so i did a factory reset(i.e. recovery) bt to my disappointment nothing went right.
    the problem exists as it happened to be.
    it is very irritating to sit in front of a black screen and do nothing for almost 4 minutes.
    is there a solution to my problem?
    so can i get help from someone?
    plz help me im really p***** with this problem.


    thanks in advance

    what kind of HD do u have and how much space used/free?? HP has a tons of drivers to load and with vista theres a lot more updates ex;printers,display options,office apps,games..used Task Manager to see what is runnin behind the scenes..i bet its a long list of stuff fo shizzle !!

    Hi narakputra. Go to this link Boot Up Time and download the zip file and then extract it and run it.

    Once its back at the desktop take a screenshot and post here (this is good for you to have a reference)

    Next download and run the .reg file from Shutdown and then click the link in my sig and download the utilities.zip under step 3 and run each shortcut one after the other. This will take a few hours to complete but once done run the reboot script again and see what your time is.

    No problem if you go to this link

    ReBoot Time

    and scroll down you'll see my reboot time. With your specs you should be getting about a 1 minute reboot time ish.
