    I just put together a new computer. Amd am2 6400. dual core 3.2 ghz WD Raptor 150 4 gig ram. Windows xp . It takes over a minute to boot up. Usually with a system like this I can get boot times of 45 secs or less. It was booting faster. I did a bios update and it seemed to slow down. I backed the update down one level and it helped a bit but still slow. I was having problems with the windows hardware driver for the onboard lan. Found a better driver from the motherboard site and that took care of the lan. The board is a Asus m3a78-emh hdmi. The memory is kingston ddr2 pc6400. Clean install of windows xp. There is not a lot of programs on it. There is 31 processes running. This computer has onboard video but it is using a power color Radeon X800 gto 16 pci express video card. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Jerry
