    Looooong boot time

    My home PC takes a really long time to boot (7 hours give or take. I give up after about 3 and go to sleep) It reaches the startup splash screen. The complete bar goes to about 60% and sits there.

    Any suggestions on what might be tying it up for so long?

    Re: Looooong boot time

    We're probably going to need a little more information such as
    How long has this been happening?
    Did it suddenly start?
    What SP's do you have installed?
    What have you tried?
    Have you run a full chkdsk?

    For starters, try:

    Re: Looooong boot time

    ah details. Would be helpful, wouldn't they.
    Win 2000 SP2
    It has been going on for a while. I had forgotten about it since I rarely turn the thing off. This weekend brought back all the memories.
    Chkdsk is run when I reboot, but again that is not often.
    The event logs do not show any errors on boot. Once it boots, all devices are shown to be working just fine.
    I have not tried anything (other than not rebooting) since I had no good idea where to start. (probably would cause more trouble than it cures)
    Not much in there that is helpful, but that is why I am stuck also.
