    Windows XP SP1 - Boot Time (XP SP1)

    I just installed Windows XP SP1 and my boot time at least tripled. The majority of the additional time appears to be when it is filling out the desktop icons. The mouse pointer is an hourglass and unusable during this time. Before I installed SP1 this painting the icons took maybe 3-5 seconds. Now it takes 30 to 45 seconds and sometimes more. Anyone have any information on why that might be and how to reduce the boot time without uninstalling SP1?

    Check the drivers for you graphics card, the generic drivers were mostly installed. Go to the webpage of the maker of the card and see if they have a XP driver.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.
