After much troubleshooting, I finally figured out what has increased my boot time. Just purchased this computer in August and its boot time clocked around 30 seconds. Now it took around 2 minutes. By unplugging everything I narrowed it down to my Microsoft Wireless Multimedia Keyboard dongle. After installing the drivers
for the keyboard boot time took around 1 minute. Still this is far from the 30s without the dongle.
Is there anything I can configure before I purchase another keyboard?
I have the stock keyboard that came with the pc as well but it has flatter beveled keys and I think it's less comfortable to type on. Which keyboard is more ergonomic out of the two?
