This Sony VAIO All-in-one VPCL22Z1E is one month old. There is not much on it, except AutoCAD, Open Office, Van Dale Electronic Dutch-English dictionary, Mozilla Thunderbird, Mozilla Firefox, Chrome browser, Adobe Reader, Gimp 2, Skype, Avast, Google Earth, WordFast Pro (CAT) and a few more tiny odds and ends.
It usually booted in about 30 seconds.
Then suddenly this week it has slowed down to taking up to 1 minute and 55 seconds to boot.
At the black Starting Windows screen, I notice that the polling to the hard-disk stops, then after a while it starts again and eventually I get into Windows 7 desktop.
I have followed plenty of the forum messages to try and trouble shoot this and restore my once rapid boot time. Nothing is working.
I do notice a lot of posts on the Web about this being a problem with Sony VAIO and Windows 7 64-bit Pro.
Has anyone had success at increasing boot time for this computer configuration?
