Windows 7: Intel(R) & NVIDIA driver booty

Intel(R) & NVIDIA driver booty

hello...

so my boot time takes a very long time (~5min) and i believe one of the causes is a faulty vga.sys... i copied the vga.sys from the windows\system32\drivers folder to the desktop and changed the sys into a txt file so that i may see some keywords from it... i opened the vga.txt and found keywords like the ATI and NVIDIA...

now the problem is that i have the Intel(R) GMA HD and not the NVIDIA... I just installed Batman: Arkham Asylum and it says that the NVIDIA Geforce #(some number) is required... are there any get-around from this?<-- i mean, to make my boot faster...

hoping for a solution... thanks...

Set up a clean boot. If you run faster, follow instructions
If you do not run faster report back for further help

If it does not work, let us know if it works in safe mode.

clean boot doesn't make my laptop run faster... i also posted the general problem here in this thread... long boot time... maybe drivers...

safe mode took a long time at CLASSPNP.sys

though i'm now in safe mode, maybe we can use that link instead... thanks for your help... i really hope i can solve this problem
