Your motherboard is a dual channel motherboard. Which means you need to have two ram modules installed to use dual channel. One module installed is using single channel which is a lot slower.

That's not the case.My friend has also the same config .He has the same ram and exact same configuration.But his welocme screen takes no time.He has Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit and I have 64 bit.Does that matters?He also has kaspersky and I have avast. I tried safe mode and welcome screen takes 5 secs.I tried with windows boot timer and it said 51 secs.Is it normal? What yours?

are your hard drives identical and have you plugged it into a SATA 2 or 3 port? one theoretically is almost twice as fast as the other (in terms of maximum speeds, of which a mech drive wont reach.. but anywho)

as well as different sata ports on a mobo can be controlled by 2 different controllers.

whats mine? about 0.5 seconds.. infact my welcome screen is just a flash of blue light
one of the benifits of ssd's is sub 10 second boot times.

avistein take a little time and study up on motherboard Single channel, Dual channel, Triple channel and Quad channel.
It should be helpful for now and later on in your computer endeavors.

no there isnt a problem with anything, its just the limits of your computer.. its just a bit slow!

your hard drive could be a slow spinning platter with a low buffer cache speed, while your friends could be a quicker version.
even still 2 identical computers with identical components will not perform identically.
his cpu could run a few mhz faster, and his ram so too.

you could have more background apps or more personalisation to windows,which all add up in nano seconds, but as a whole add up in seconds.

as stated above, getting another stick of ram that is identical to yours and putting it in the correct lane will not only double the amount of ram you have but double the access speed to and from the ram. that will make a noticable difference.

so will buying a solid state hard drive which will be about 3.5x faster than your current one. but again it will all add up..

if you want speed you have to pay for it

Currently after installing hotfix KB977419.I reduced it by 15 secs.Amazing!! now the welocome hangs for 15 secs.And disabling the antivirus makes it 5 secs.So it may be an OS issue.Or Kaspersky faster than Avast.Should I download the new OS from http://msft.digitalrivercontent.net/win/X17-59465.iso ?

Windows 7 Ultimate N hangs! :(
This is something annoying and surprising- I thought Microsoft fixed these issues. What happens is when ever I start a media player (Power DVD, My TV Tuner, WMC or MC) the computer freezes for a moment (about 20 seconds) and then becomes normal. Same happens when I exit the media program. Any ideas...
