    Hi, Im new to this forums and I have a question about my windows.



    My 'Windows is starting' took ages to load. I mean literally 35 minutes.





    This aint normal and I thought I should reinstall windows 7.
    Thats what I did, I reinstalled and figured out that the 'Setup is starting' screen also took like 30-40 minutes, when I got past it I saw that the 'Finishing Installation' took my pc another 20 minutes.
    once, I got it installed it didnt fix the insane loading times.


    The harddrive im installing windows on is 64gb SSD harddrive.

    specs :
    i7 950 @3ghz.
    RADEON HD 6990.
    12 gb ddr3.



    Right now my harddrive is sent back and I will get a new one. lets just hope it fixes the problem.


    does anyone else have a solution to this?

    I think I would wait until you get the replacement drive and see if that cures the problem. A conventional hard drive would be the prime suspect with those symptoms although while you are waiting for the replacement drive it may be worth running a lengthy test with Memtest86+ just to be sure there are no problems in the RAM.

    Download Memtest86+ from here

    You will need to burn the ISO image using image burning software like ImgBurn and then you can boot the problem PC with it and run the tests. Complete a minimum of 8 passes. If it shows any errors you will have to re-run the tests on groups of RAM sticks to quickly isolate any faulty ones.
