    Slow boot on Vista Laptop

    I bought a new laptop and for some reason when I boot up, after the green bar
    has disappeared, the screen turns black and goes off because no signal has
    been received for so long before finally coming back on at the log in screen.

    Any ideas people?

    Many thanks!

    Could you quantify slow with a number of seconds from pushing the power
    button until the log in screen appears. My laptop running Vista Ultimate X64
    takes about 45 seconds for this to occur.

    Hi Jon,

    This tutorial will show you how to speed up the boot up time by a bit. It shows you how to change the default 30 seconds to wait for the following below to what you want:

    1. Time to Display List of Operating Systems
    2. Time to Display the Recovery Options When Needed

    Boot Up

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn
