Frank_ ,don't know what aps you have running on start up but if you have Windows Live Messenger this could be one of your slow start up problems if you are:- On the Messenger Sign In window ,first click on that blue question mark then Show Menu Bar(only if the menu bar is not shown) then ,left click on "Tools" then "Options" then "Sign In" clear check box "Automatically run Windows Live Messenger when I log on to Windows" >apply>OK
On start up Windows Live Messenger does take some time to start-up about a minute or so and with no indication so when your system reaches the start page [with Messenger starting in the back ground] and you try to open any aps you would now have a command issue for which the system tries to execute first this slows down any system after start up,if this doesn't work keep viewing other forum post you are not alone.
ok so maybe its only about 3 minutes. but still , 3 MINUTES? this seems like a insane amount of time when I have other dells in the office with w764 that take about a minute to start up to the w7 log in screen while mine takes 3 minutes.
And this has been the same since I first got it wish was about 6-7 months ago. I only usually shut down and restart 3 times a week but its becoming so annoying.
Are there other xps9000 owners that have experienced the same thing? Is this normal for having a machine like the 9000?
Let me know what you guys think please
thanks much in advance.
